Pretty good teacher but he forces the class to participate if no one is talking. Also he doesn't use chromebooks. But hes a good teacher and i never had to study for any of the quizzes/tests because he prepares u well if you just pay attention in class.

Mr. Bauer is actually the best!! Many people do not agree with his militant teaching style but I appreciate it and how effective it is. He is very knowledgeable, and thoroughly explains the notes as he gives them to you.

He's definitely scary, but in a great way. He's an awesome teacher, he knows what he's doing and he prepares us well for the AP and the tests. He's tough, but it's a good tough. Beware the hammer

Can seem intimidating to people who never really get to know him, but he's actually a really nice guy who cares about his job and his students. I was never intimidated by him in class because I had already met him when he was my JV soccer coach.

an incredible human being and very cool person to talk to. very knowledgeable about history and is always spouting interesting tidbits and stories from history. seems strict at first, but don't be intimidated. only letdown is that he doesn't seem to genuinely enjoy teaching

He will want you to think that he is a very strict and scary guy, but it wont work. He really loves his job and it shows! He understands his students, and is, for that reason, a really chill teacher.

Better than Maslow, but too lazy to give meaningful assignments. The preparation for the AP world exam sucked, since we never even got to go over the in class practice quizzes.

Really depends on what kind of class you have. I was lucky and had a funny and enthusiastic class, which made World History bearable. Much better than Maslow, as I've heard. He has an incredible wealth of knowledge in the subject, being a war veteran

Mr. Bauer seems really intimidating at first but he's only strict if you don't take his class seriously. Quizzes are pure memorization so it takes a while to study, but if you know your material then they're easy. His notes are VERY helpful for tests
