11/14/14 - 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. Show More Show Less

03/27/14 - 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.. Show More Show Less

03/14/14 - 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. Show More Show Less

11/22/13 - 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. Show More Show Less

11/16/13 - 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. Show More Show Less

02/27/13 - 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. Show More Show Less

02/07/13 - 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. Show More Show Less

02/05/13 - 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!!

06/23/12 - 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. Show More Show Less
