He is a self centered teacher who does not care about his students success. He likes to think he has a reputation as a challenging but cool teacher and has no clue that the vast majority of his students hate him.

This teacher is the single worst teacher I have ever had to experience. He makes the classroom environment much more stressful then it needs to be with his constant pacing around and yelling. Jacobson is a much better teacher.

He is a self-centered teacher, he cares more about his self image than his students. He is by extent a good teacher, but a total A-Hole. The class is easy, the concept is easy, it just that he, himself makes it seem hard. If anyone of your kids is taking AP, I do suggest you either have him or Ostry, many struggle in John for some reason.

Schilling loves what he does-- he's total NSL nerd. He really wants his students to succeed, and he helps them every step of the way. My only complaint is that his class didn't make me feel 101% prepared for the AP, and although I got a 5, several students who aced his class did not. He is the best NSL teacher by far at churchill

Amazing teacher. Mr. Schilling makes me strive to be the best, and he is extremely influential. I have the utmost respect and admiration for him. After Schilling, government just won't be the same.

I think he is one of the best teachers at Churchill, and although he isn't always too easy on you, that's because he wants you to try harder.

One of the best teachers I've ever had, and made me really enjoy government, so much that I'm considering majoring in it (although that decision is a ways off). He teaches interesting things even if they probably won't show up on the exam, and helped me get a 5 :)

Schilling is honestly the best teacher I have ever had. His class is hard in the beginning but it gets better and it is really worth the work because you learn a ton. He is really chill and is really easy to relate to. Hes really enthusiastic. I thought I was going to hate nsl but he made it fun. Tres cool.

I know that he has his mood swings, but maybe it is just you, and not him! It is clear if he likes you or does not like you - maybe you should get the hint.

Good teacher i guess, but he seriously needs to check his mood swings sometimes. He's the kind of person who goes for extremes. He's either really really mean or really really nice. But when he's mean, he's MEAN. If he's in a bad mood, he makes you feel so stupid and indirectly hints at how you're wasting his time.
