He shows major favoritism towards members of the dance team and loves their bake sales. It is not fair for the students since we all don't get A+'s. I Love him he's so hot. I can't stand the way he teaches. Overall a great teacher.

Great teacher, will challenge you. Very interesting class - but make sure you pay attention when necessary. Learned a lot in that class and not just facts but how to be a better student. I would try to get on his good side, but the class is enjoyable.

He is honestly one of the worst teachers I have ever had. Not only is he bad at teaching in general, but he is also a bad person overall, often times making fun of students and others. He is rude and terribad. Also, his grading system is the most illogical system in the world. Good luck getting through the year with him...

Mr. Allen is one of Byram Hill's best. I had him my senior year for Psychology. His teaching style is very unique and similar to a college teaching style. I can say I learned more from Mr. Allen's psychology course than I did from a college psychology course.

What can I say? He is that one teacher that every kid should have. He will work his hardest to get you to the best you can be, he is so entertaining. He tells great stories. He can be super egotistical but its really entertaining. As long as you try your best he will always be willing to help. Had a great year with him, wish I could have him every year.
