Feb 26, 2015 This nigha think he's the Stephen Hawkings of the chemistry world. He is literally the mother of dicks, he will make you cry for dropping your pencil on accident. He thinks everything is easy so he doesn't teach it well. Id think everything was easy too if I taught the same stuff for 29 years! He talks more about cows than chemistry Flag Rating

Jan 24, 2015 The job of a teacher is to do exactly that- to teach. While this man is definitely knowledgeable and has lots of experience, he fails to get through to students in a way that doesn't make them want to give up on school. If you manage to get on his good side (he likes the louder students who laugh at his jokes) then his class will be a breeze. Otherwise, run for your life. Flag Rating

Jan 14, 2015 Absolute worst teacher I have ever come into contact with! And I graduated 6 years ago, so I already went through having college professors ! AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL! He is completely rude to students, calling them by "nick names" that aren't even realivant to their names ! No respect for anyone, not even some of the staff, especially non science staff.

Jan 08, 2015 His class isn't easy, but he's a good teacher. If you pay attention and read the book you should be able to get an A with ease. He's pretty much the opposite of Ziller, scary personality but is an absolutely amazing teacher. He will teach you a life lesson every once in a while (which is sadly necessary, considering a fair amount of the students, including myself, don't have much of a social life).

If you're a smart student, and usually get straight A's, you'll have no problem with his class.

Dec 18, 2014 Mr. Orme is the best chemistry teacher in FVHS. If you pay attention and try, then his class will be a breeze. On the other hand, he does insult his students, makes you want to cry, and crush your dreams, but he's honestly a fantastic teacher. Think about it. Would you rather have a good teacher that's scary/mean or a nice teacher that's horrible at teaching? Flag Rating

Nov 14, 2014 This man will beat you into the ground if you aren't prepared. I got him for the first time this year, but stories from last year prepared me. This isn't some class you can just breeze through or ignore. If you sleep in his class on one of his bad days, may God have mercy on your soul. But what he knows, he knows well. If you keep up with his work and stay on top of things, you AP Exam will probably me the easiest exam. Also if you want to talk to him come after class, he's cool after class. Flag Rating

Mar 27, 2014 Constantly crushes dreams. I was tired during a lab since I didn't get sleep that night and yelled at me to go outside; he then made me look up at the lights, say the alphabet backwards, accused me of being high, then threatened to call supervision.. Flag Rating

Mar 14, 2014 Definitely a good teacher who knows what he's doing, but he will not tolerate "stupid questions" and will make you feel like a failure if you're not 100% on top of things or one of his favorites. He is relentlessly insensitive and will make you cry. Flag Rating

Nov 22, 2013 This man is knowledgeable, I will give him that. His teaching skills and the way he talks to and interacts with students on the other hand, makes me want to puke. He lives in his constant reality of "You will fail in life," this man will beat you down to a pulp if you show any sign of weakness and if you are not on your toes you will get it. If you can survive you will never be the same, and you're most likely going to be a stuck up ass hole like him someday. Don't take him, enjoy HS. Flag Rating

Nov 16, 2013 Awful teacher. He is obviously very knowledgeable about what he teaches, I'll give him that. But he's a really shitty teacher and makes you feel like an idiot for asking questions. You'll learn more by teaching yourself. Also really insensitive and lowers his students' self esteems. If you've ever wanted to be an English or art or anything that's not math or science major get ready to have your dreams crushed and shit on. Transfer out immediately. Especially if you have a learning disability. Flag Rating

Feb 27, 2013 He is the worst teacher I have ever, and out of all my teachers he is the worst human being. He made me cry, and there are countless others to whom he's done the same. He's demeaning and makes you feel worthless. He picks on those that he knows will crumble. He pulled me across his classroom by my shirt collar as if I was an animal on a leash. If I could have him fired I would. He's just a negative influence. Flag Rating

Feb 07, 2013 The most DIFFICULT TEACHER EVER. I want to cry from being in his class. Tests have like a 50% fail rate and he has ruined many a good kids chances of getting into the colleges of their dreams. He knows his chemistry but he can make you feel so terrible and degraded that you almost want to give up even. He has the ability to make anyone from a little girl to the toughest jock you know cry. If you can transfer out DO IT SPARE YOURSELF THE PAIN OF BEING IN HIS CLASS. Flag Rating

Feb 05, 2013 mr.orme's chemistry class is one of the most difficult classes on campus. his way of teaching is hard to understand, and he is always sarcastic that it is hard to know if he is serious or not. he never answers your questions, but when he does, he replies back with a sarcastic answer. he gets off topic a lot, and his quizzes and tests are impossible to pass. if you have mr.orme, TRANSFER OUT!!

Jun 23, 2012 He's willing to sacrifice his time to help you out, but he is really strict and his class is difficult. He never listens to you and will constantly make you feel worthless and like you don't deserve to succeed. He picks on some people for the littlest things and is very sarcastic. But overall, if you really want to learn chemistry, he is a great teacher and he's nice to you if you talk to him and seem like you care about the class. Just read the book and prepare yourself well and you'll do well. Flag Rating
