I had Mr. Alfano for seventh grade science back in 2014-2015, and he was definitely the best Coleytown science teacher I had ever had. Also- whoever got upset about him using the word "obtain" is obviously not ready for high school because that's honestly first grade vocabulary. No wonder you're failing.

Mr Alfano is the BEST TEACHER EVER! I had him last year, and he has served as one of my romodels since. In his class I learned I was capable of way more than I thought I was. His tests were hard, but he prepared us for them better than any teacher i've ever had. Mr Alfano is the real deal guys, everybody loves him. If he is your teacher your in luck!!! I'm now in 8th grade and I am doing so well in every subject thanks to him. I miss him as my teacher

Mr. Alfano is possibly the craziest teacher I have ever had... But in a good way! He's really funny and kind, and is super random. Anyone who's about to go in his class better be prepared for his ENERGY. (Ha ha. If you're in his class you'll get that.) He keeps all of us on our toes. His class though, is probably the hardest I've ever taken, and I'm in algebra honors. Overall, he is a fantastic teacher...

I did learn alot, but could have learned the same with half as much work. I was prepared for the next year, but alot of the work was not necessary. Wasted alot of my time. Example: 20 pg lab reports
