Best teacher I've ever had. He is extremely understanding and many people who hesitate to take his (AP Language and Composition) class, do not have such understanding of him. I had him in cluster english my freshman year and then I had the pleasure of having him again my senior year. He is the hardest working teacher I have ever met. He will work with students everyday at lunch and after school for hours with ANYONE who needs help. Do not hesitate to take his class. It WILL change your life!

He is simply the best. He tries very hard to grade papers objectively and does everything he can to improve your writing. In addition he is very funny and makes a lot of jokes without getting carried away.

Mr. Frerichs will probably always be one of my favorite teachers. The writing strategies he taught me senior year have stuck with me and made me a better college writer. He was also funny, positive, caring, and just an overall great guy. Hope he's still teaching at PHHS.

Mr. Frerichs is very helpful and extremely knowledgeable, as well as engaging and funny. Although he's a hard grader, his class is definitely worth taking; you get to learn quite a lot. The exams, in my experience, involve a lot of writing, but you shouldn't worry too much about that since Frerichs prepares you pretty well for it. Textbooks are hardly, if ever, used. Whatever questions you have, you can bring to Frerichs and he'll have an answer 99.9% of the time.

Hands down, one of the best teachers you would ever be so blessed to have. He demands a lot from his students, and in return, you're better for it. He has a wonderful personality: funny, charming, and witty. You will admire him long after graduation.

I'm really sad because I got him in the beginning of the year and I got switched out because of he was supposed to have 3 AP English and only had 2 :( he was the best teacher I ever got and I hope to have him again. Now I have the horrible Mrs.Nix :/ I miss you Mr. Frerich's! Your jokes made my day! Best class ever.

I had Mr. Frerichs for AP Lang, and he was without a doubt the best teacher I ever had in high school, for any subject. Clear, helpful, and incredibly intelligent, Mr. Frerichs taught me more than any English teacher I had ever had and was witty and enter

Possibly my favorite teacher ever. It's not an easy class at all, but the challenge is definitely worth it, and he's always willing to help. He's a pretty talented teacher, strict but not boring at all. Make an effort

Really great guy- increadibly hilarious. Instructions for projects and abstract principals taught are sometimes unclear, but he is always glad to clarify. Pretty challanging class, but not too hard. It's hard to come back if you've fallen behind though.

He is best teacher I have ever had, that's for sure. He is a difficult grader, but really prepares you for your junior and senior years. He's got a good sense of humor and keeps you interested, which is always a plus when you're in any freshman class.

Mr. Frerichs is extremely strict. He's a good teacher but I would strongly recommend his class for upperclassmen. His jokes are uniquely funny and he's a great character. He's not an easy-going person though. Has favorites and unfavorites.

Mr. Frerichs is by far the most fantastic english teacher on the face of the earth. He is one of the few teachers where you can have a great time in class and still learn a lot and be challenged. All the other teachers look like fools next to him.

Stood up to Crowder and she almost got him fired. A great teacher and someone who has rightfully, and finally, taken a stand against the administration.
