Mrs. O'Brien was by far the best teacher i have ever had. AP Stats is a very difficult class and she does her very best to make sure all of her students have a good experience. she thinks of very creative ways to remember certain material (for ex. she uses a lot of acronyms). She's a nut which makes us excited to go to class especially because she gives us a lot of food labs. in addition, she gives a lot of homework from the textbook but if you do it all, you'll get a 5 on the AP exam. love her!

Lots of homework every night. Her class is very structured and she prepares you very well for the AP exam. We do a lot of group work and she gives us a lot of food. Also she has extra help very frequently where she gives out food. We do a lot of practice so the quizzes are really easy because the problems are similar but tests are harder especially the multiple choice. She usually curves those so it's ok. She's entertaining sometimes but boring at other times.

she's the sweetest human on earth. LOTS of candy/food labs to help with understanding and keep tummies in check hehehe.
but really if you do the work (there is a lot, but it really helps) you WILL do well and WILL get 3+ on the AP exam.
Take AP Stats either as sophomore or senior, not recommended as a Junior so much because the workload will way on you too much! GL.

Great teacher, will prepare you well for the AP Stats exam. Likes people who do their homework and do well on tests, and the way she acts towards her favorites is very obvious. Will not allow anyone to sleep/talk while she is teaching. Enjoys interacting with students after class and smalltalk.

One of the best teachers I have ever had. She teaches her material well and over prepares you for the AP Stats test. Her tests are easy and she's not as moody as everyone here describes her as. Just don't talk in class when she's teaching!

Although she definitely plays favorites and is very moody at times, she's teaches very clearly and prepares you very well for the AP test. But don't talk in class or you'll get on her bad side.

Plays favorites and if she doesn't like you, she will do all that she can to fail you. Mostly applies to older male students.

O'brien's AP Stats class is fun, it's not a huge workload, but it's still a large quantity every now and then. I reccomend taking the course. P.S. Her labs are usually super fun if not just fun.

Speaking as a stat student in grad school who had Mrs. O'Brien in 04 - She is absolutely the best stat teacher you will ever have. If you can't handle stat with her, never take it again. She's awesome

Most competent math teacher I have ever had, though she talks kind of fast and is a bit nerdy. In case you're wondering I've had Alessi, Rosenthal (and Parente), and Glasheen (and Albinson).

She has the worst ideas for projects in 10th grade, but I had Tam. She was a wonderful statistics teacher and I had a great time in her class. I would recommend AP Stats to anyone.
