I LOVE MR STERN!!!!!! He is a teacher that wants each student to succeed. Therefore, he will naturally be harder on the students that don't put in the necessary work. He admires the students that take the extra time to understand a lesson. He likes to have fun and can talk about hockey for hours, days, centuries. Loveee

Continues to help me even when I had him last year. He was the guy that supported me and told me that I'm great at science, and really helped me. Love him!

He was and still is my all time favorite teacher I've had in any subject. Though he seems hard, it's really the material that's hard and he really tries to make everything fun. Along with that, if you don't understand something he'll take to time to make up a ridiculous story or way to understand something so it sticks in your brain. All in all, best teach ever.

This class was a breeze the first quarter because of physical science S with Dr. Wenger, if you plan on taking honors chem later in highschool, take physical science and request Dr.Wenger. He teaches you the first quarter of Honors Chem. Stern on the other hand is whimsical and sarcastic in a funny way, he is out loud about everything and if you just do the work on time (at times difficult but fair) this class will go by so quickly. Just do the work and he will take to you almost immediately.

This man is one of, if not the, best teacher in the building. Not only is he people person but he also cares about our success in the classroom and pushes us to our potential. He may seem hard at first but he's there for us. People sometimes take his sarcasm the hard way but it's who he is. Passionate about his job.

I personally did not enjoy his class. I was in honors chem and he constantly would insult us and wasn't very serious. He knows what he is doing, but doesn't really convey the information in the best format. Also, if you are gone for a lot of days (like I was since I had to go to the doctor's twice a week), expect him to be angry and practically accuse of skipping and doing other bad things. Thank God I am out of his class.

Mr. Stern is possibly the best teacher I have ever had this year. I am in his Honors Chemistry class and it is an absolute blast. He is hilarious, smart, and teaches the material so well! He doesn't let you fail and will work with you anytime to make sure you truly understand the concept! He truly does prepare you for AP Chemistry and College. His jokes are so bad that they are funny! He is such an unique teacher. Take his class! It is possibly the best class i have taken in high school so far!
