He is by far my favorite teacher and the only class where I don't feel like I'm falling asleep. He makes the material so fun and he has a great sense of humor. It is easy to do well in the class if you pay attention.

my favorite teacher ever. he makes the class really fun and if you pay attention and work hard it's easy enough to get an A. even though he seems a little intimidating at first he's a great teacher and loves to joke around with everyone - i don't think i've ever laughed more in a single class before. he's been here for a while so he really knows his stuff and you can tell he enjoys helping us and teaching us.

...Every CHS student has heard stories of the Great Mr. Metz.
He is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He's old fashioned and has a pretty strong sense of humor, but he genuinely cares about all of his students individually doing well. He picks on kids (including me) all the time, but you have to be pretty dumb to think he's serious.
In addition, he's one of the best history teachers there, and if you pay attention in his course its an easy 5 on the AP. He really knows his stuff.

I think Mr.Metz is a really awesome teacher and the accusations that he name grades are kind of ridiculous. My grades clearly fluctuate depending on how well written or poorly written my work is meaning he takes the time to actually read and grade each assignment. He is extremely funny and engaging and probably one of the best teachers I have had in high school because I actually am interested enough to pay attention and learn in class.

It's a pretty tough class but Metz is one of the only teachers in chs that actually teach. We learn everyday and although there is a lot of work and studying involved it has become one of my favorite class and it's one of the few i learn in

He's not a very good teacher. He picks favorites from the class to which he distributes his 'A's. Everyone else gets a 'B,' no matter what his/her intelligence in the field is. In other words, he's a "face grader," and hence one has to make a good impression on him on the first day if he/she want to get a constant 'A.' He also gives lots of essays and a whole lot of work. In addition, he's not as funny as people give him credit to be. Not very helpful either; his motto is "Wiki it." Sorry. :(

I loved Mr. Metz. He was he first History teacher that made me want to learn it. He was always funny and still able to make the lesson funny. I loved his class. To bad he is retiring soon, all the younger kids are going to miss out on a great experience. i actually did really good in his class even though it was super hard!!

He is a wonderful educator and a great friend to students. He is extremely knowledgeable and is always helpful. It doesn't hurt that he is extremely funny and incorporates impersonations of historical figures into his lectures. Great teacher!!!!

Sure,he's a little strange-I mean, his obsession with Teddy Roosevelt is oftentimes more than a little disturbing. But hey, that makes his class more the fun!
