01/16/12 - I had him for AP Euro and US history. I passed both APs, but the only thing I learned in his class was how to BS my way through 2 years of fear, boredom, and freezing classroom temperatures. He teaches through intimidation - a highly unnecessary method. I will never forget how he made me cry in class twice, simply because I answered a question incorrectly.

The only advice I could give to his future students: once you're through with him, any teacher is a breeze.

01/16/12 - Mr. Toy was, without a doubt, one of the best teachers in the magnet when I attended NHHS, and if he is still there, I can only assume that this is still the case. I am unsurprised by the relatively low rating he has received; his classes wer certainly the most difficult I took, his strict nature is undeniable. Understandably, his popularity suffers for this. However, he without a doubt taught me more than any other teacher, and both of my 5s in history APs back this up. Show More Show Less

12/17/11 - I'm sorry, but Mr. Toy is a very bad teacher. Not to say that he isn't very knowledgeable on the subject, but he is very intimidating and rude to students, his tests and grading policies are ridiculous, and any opinion that doesn't agree with his is wrong. His class is almost impossible, and will bring down your GPA, although you will get a good score on the AP. I am very good at history, and received a D in this class. Many people did worse.

09/26/11 - I took AP Euro and AP US History with Toy, and boy were they difficult. His tests were created in such a way that it was hard to get an A even with massive studying. He would be so picky on the essays Show More Show Less

04/19/11 - way to hard unless you are extremely into history, he cares but doesn't realize there are other classes, brings down grades in other classes unless you are extremely smart AND hardworking Show More Show Less

03/23/11 - The fact that several students were able to receive 5s or 4s in their APs while having Bs and Cs in his class says something about his unrealistic style. If he is aiming to teach, then he should guide Show More Show Less

03/23/11 - Easiness: History is nothing but memorizing. Having someone give you these answers instead of aiding self-analysis to help in memorizing doesn't help.

Helpfulness: Someone asks a question? "Sorry, no
