Mr. Rainford is probably the most fair teacher in the school. He doesn't need anyone to tell him what to do and he is a strong independent teacher.g

He is a good teacher if you do the work. He helps you when you need it, but you have constantly remind him or he will forget. He is also very confusing when he is explaining the material.

Pretty helpful in a roundabout confusing way. Goes on tangents, but that's what makes him special! :)

Horrible Horrible teacher. If your are girl, you are guaranteed to do well as long as you dont cheat. He grades so arbitarily, does not take the time to know his own students and whenever you ask him for help, he actually confuses you even more. Short deadlines to complete plates and I had to use my free periods to complete them. Just try the best you can but hardly anyone gets above a 92.

cool teacher. ive got a 95 in his class for term 1, nd that was after missing a lot of plates. on top of it, im like the class clown. for sum reason,i think he likes us, even tho he pretends not to, he seems to find us ammsuing. he is a forgiving teacher, just dont annoy him too much. also, if u ask for help with a plate, he tends to grade it tougher, so try nd get it on ur own.

Mr. Rainford is a funny teacher. His lessons are clear but he doesn't really teach. As long as you do the work, read parts of the textbook (to ace the midyear + final) you'll get good grades.

hardly teaches the class, but as long as you try and do the work, you'll get a 90+, and don't get on his bad side, or he will give you a bad grade.

Mr Rainford is a nice teacher. I had him for woodworking this summer and learned to make one very cool windmill :) Just look over his handouts and you'll manage on his tests.
