He is kind, wants participation and really patient with slow learning student. The only way to upset him is to be disrespectful or lack work ethic. He strives to be a good teacher and has accomplished that goal! - March 31, 2016

He is a very nice man who has a passion for teaching. He demands participation and is very enthusiastic. I love his class. He speaks his mind (which is usually good) and he hardly cares what anyone thinks of him. He's very knowledgeable and I feel like I could ask him about anything (school related or not) however, sometimes I feel like he's crosses into gray areas as a teacher. There is regularly Christian music playing, as well as near-flirtatious remarks to the girls.

Every student should have the opportunity to have Rick Foley as a teacher! Not only does he have command, ability and patience to teacher Pre.Calc and other maths, Rick is an amazing mentor who will serve his students long after they have left his classroom!! Mr. Foley does what most teachers are unable to do, he finds out how a student learns and leads them to success! He is available before/during/after school to tutor for FREE & communicates with parents-Rick is an equally amazing Coach!

Great teacher! He builds a personal relationship with every student to make sure they succeed. Although I didn't like him as a teacher while I was in his class, I'm glad I had him now. And his class should be named "trig, precal, and life skills".

He really is a good teacher, but if I had to criticize I'd say he gets off on way too many tangents. He'll quickly turn a trigonometry lesson into a 30 minute lecture on life skills, which isn't really a bad thing it's just distracting when trying to learn about math. He's very strict, but not in a mean way, in a way that shows he cares about his students. And people who say he has favoritism for the track team are probably just poor students trying to find someone to blame.

Great teacher in all the subjects he teaches. May not be the easiest teacher but he makes sure you understand the material. He also teaches things other then math that have helped me in life. had trouble with something and i asked him for help and he was eager to help at any time and happy to do so.

Don't like him. Plays mind games with his students. Attacked me personally one day in class. If you are on track, he loves you, if you are not watch out, you are a bad student!

Foley is a good teacher but he pats himself on the back too often. Many times it is more about him than it is the students.
