Frederick is very entertaining, he knows how to get a class to pay attention and keep them happy at the same time. He knows how to get students to think critically (Or as he likes to call it, "MAD STUPID DEEP") and has a very good sense of humor, just do his homework cause he gets really irritated if you don't do it. Plus his exams are kinda hard

His class is a challenge even for a student who gets all "E's". I read the books, took class notes (2pages everyday), and spent hours when it came to homework. His questions can't be answered with information stated in the book. You have to dig deeper and find what is hidden in between the lines. Be specific and participate ! I was terrible at that. I don't think I'll ever love and appreciate a class like that again. Although it was extrmely stressful , it was also the greatest!

He is an educated, funny teacher that is always clear. Unfortunately, he is incredibly harsh on students most of which (at least in my class) are girls, and we don't quite enjoy being looked down on. He can be rude and is not very big on praise, but overall a good teacher.

Mr. Frederick is an AMAZING teacher. He's hilarious and he's really knowledgeable. He's usually always smiling/making jokes but he has his off days. All in all, he is one of the best teachers ever and he is very cool. However, DO NOT DISRESPECT HIM or he will go off into this Frederick rage and turns into this really scary person.

hes a GREAT teacher, but theres no bull. You cant just do the minimum that any other teacher would be okay with, you have to work hard and once youve worked hard, work harder. it pays off and you learn alot. my fav. moment with mister fredrick is when he made me do the "deep dance" that i made up infront of the whole class and i was shy so he did it with me. overall awesome teacher.

He's a cool teacher that will help you to understand, but you have to put in lots of work. He has ruined all forms of art for all of his students. He has revolutionized the teaching of english to students and I am forever grateful to him for that.

wowww, awesome teacher. he relates everything that we read to the present time so the class isn't just analyzing a book but it's learning about people and life. i cannot possibly be bored in that class because i'm busy trying to get a deep point.

I don't follow him sometimes. He should explain things more thoroughly. He doesn't bother helping those who need help. I thought he was alright until I found a better English teacher. He doesn't treat all students equally.

BEST TACHER EVER!!! English is my favorite class because of him besides Mr. Redito's class. I got scared at the beginning of the cycle because he said the class is going to be really hard and thst I will most likely get an S. But I got E's in his class so far.

This guy is very smart - there is absolutely no question about that. If you read the hw pages, you'll enjoy the class since you can take part in conversations and know what's actually going on; if you dont read, you'll be forever lost.
