He's one of the strict teachers. The boring and old fashioned type too. But that's the way to learn and prepare for college. Life's hard in the real world.. so he brings the real world into his classroom so we can all get a taste of reality. I actually liked him as a teacher.

I had him cycle 1 in 1991 and honestly I thought he was very boring and that is what made it difficult for me to develop an interest in global studies and to be able to do my homework well. Most of the time my mother had to help me with the homework because I could hardly figure out what he wanted. His tests were hard but the point with that is to study way ahead of time. Otherwise you will flunk.

I had Mr. Ross back in 1995, my sophomore year in Murrow. Before I had him, I was not too great at social studies. He really taught me how to study. Now I am finishing law school.

He;s a good teacher, and teaches well (although I'll admit his jokes are very corny)He's test are ridiculous and he always complains, but I guess he just wants you to do well. To who ever gets him down the road, good luck!You'll need it.

Mr. Ross is obnoxious in his way of teaching and grading. He isn't any more difficult than any other teacher, but he simply cannot teach. Thinks he's funny too!

Well...what can anyone possibly say about the notorious MrRoss? The only three reasons why you aren't in class on a test day are: coma, death (preferably your own)...and the Bubonic Plague .his words still haunt me in my nightmares. but he IS great..
