Mr. Ward is a great guy and a great teacher. He likes to let the class teach itself by only starting off discussions and letting us carry on, but if we get stuck, he is there to get us back on track. He is very funny and nice, definitely someone to enjoy being around as a teacher or otherwise.

I was always excited to come to class. Mr. Ward is one of those rare teachers that are truly passionate about teaching and spreading knowledge. IB grading is tough -- and you'll score less-than-desirable grades to start -- but you WILL learn and grow. Without a doubt. If there's anything to make IB easier to go through, it's having a knowledgeable, approachable, hilarious teacher (he was also my club sponsor which was a lot of fun). What a privilege it was to be his student this year!

Wow....do I miss Mr. Ward. Had him in 2008 for my senior year and was honestly THE BEST male teacher there. So funny, makes class enjoyable and not boring, I NEVER fell asleep in that class. He helped alot with my writing skills, which has helped in college and even receive A's on papers. GREAT GREAT TEACHER!

Mr. Ward is my other best friend after Mr. Scholla. He's really knowledgeable about basically everything English-related and is funny too. He also gives out candy.

With Mr. Ward it depends on what you do in the class. If you don't care to much about English than it is pretty easy to get the B you want. Sometimes his jokes can be PUNishment but he makes class fun
