Wow, I love and miss Mr. Ditrano. He is absolutely hilarious and blunt, knows everything about physics, and always willing to help a student in need. Students may be overwhelmed at first by the amount of homework he gives (homework every night in this class, sometimes he checks it, sometimes he doesn't), but if you are one of the few that actually do his assignments, you will excel massively. Paul Ditrano is a legend, and you will miss this man in college.

Amazing teacher! Super knowledge of science and full of life lessons. You need to get past the humor to find that he cares more about us than almost any other teacher or adult

Mr. Ditrano is an incredible teacher. He's funny, smart, and a pretty nice guy. However, don't get too cooky in this class. UTILIZE THE TEXTBOOK MORE THAN YOUR NOTES. He will often pull many questions from the text and use it on his quizzes/tests. And the quizzes are always pop. His tests will prepare you for the trimester and comp very, very well. Use the textbook and study from his tests for trimesters and this class shall be an easy 85 or above.

Mr. Ditrano is a very, very good teacher with a vast knowledge of Physics. Always has some sort of joke up his sleeve every class. However, he gives a lot of homework but it will definitely help you in the long run. Excellent teacher.
