Just finished my final exam. This was a great experience. I worked very hard and it paid off. Mr. McNamara made the class really fun, really interesting and he was always available for help if I needed it. He wants us to learn and to think much more than worrying about just grades. It was my favorite class by far.

Mac is probably the smartest teacher at the school. That is also his flaw. He speaks to his class as though we are already close to his level of knowledge and pays no heed to if we are confused. He doesn't elaborate much and writes random words on the board. He makes up for this with easy quizzes, fun labs and having an overall entertaining class. Get your lab reports in on time and read the textbook every night and the class is easy. Even if confusing.

Best class at Fordham Prep. Pete is the greatest teacher of all time. Fair class but doesn't explain that well. As long as you copy down his Mona Lisa pictures that he draws on the board you'll do fine in his class. Smartest guy at Fordham.

Very smart guy and knows his stuff but is completely out of it. Gets off topic and looks like a mess. Tests contain information that he doesn't teach. Overall weird guy and is obsessed with plants but is very smart

One of my favorite teachers at fordham prep. Even though you dont learn a lot, he just gives random grades. Some kids in my class had 50's on tests and still got A's and b 's

He's an awesome teacher, unorganized, but he is really smart. to do well in his class, you have to put in a lot of effort on your own part, and it is kind of like a college course, he draws elephants
