Knows what he's talking about, he's a nice guy and all. But the exams suck because he does not explain well enough the text material, but when he does it ends up being something different entirely. Really bad at answering questions and not helpful at all.

Best teacher and overall a great person. He will get to know you, and do whatever he can to help you if you're struggling. If you went to Ipswich High School and didn't have him, I feel sorry for you. Mr. Ames is the best!

Mr. Ames is my favorite teacher ever. He always makes history fun and interesting to learn. The lectures can get a bit long sometimes, but that's more the course than the teacher. Also, he tries to break up the lectures with discussions and movies, which is more than I can say for most other teachers. He's also a pretty amazing tech director :)

Very knowledgeable. Funny as well. He does trivia once a week with candy prizes, and has great accents.

You know what? People say he shouldn't teach A.P. because they don't like the work. He has a life outside of school and he's got other obligations so he won't be there all the time. He's helpful and really cares about his students. If you don't want

This guy will bore you to tears. Smart yes, but all he does is drone on and on and on, never around when you have a question and sometimes not even in class.

I love Ames, he's a great guy who does too much and doesn't get enough credit. i wish that in class he kept a tighter lid on things...we go off on unrelated tangents and get very worked up emotionally

Quality teaching, a little hard to keep everything in class straight because we cover so much, but he's very detailed and thorough. Good guy.
