06/18/14 - Probably my favorite NT teacher. Lectures were hilarious and educational. He is lazy and takes his time with grading but he gives you a rubric explaining what he grades for and isn't a bitter grader. Didn't give nightly reading check quizzes. Awesome Show More Show Less

08/18/12 - Honestly, this guy is just kind of lazy. About one day a week we would do absolutely nothing in class, while he lectured us on something irrelevant like what a proper bagel is or why kids who go to NT are spoiled brats that are too uptight about everything. Even though he seems to know his stuff underneath, we did most of the same activities every day. Looking back on the year, I could maybe tell you three facts that I learned the whole year, none of which he actually taught me. Show More Show Less

06/12/12 - He is Lazy. He does not give your papers back before the next one is due, so you have no idea what to change. He gives you letter grades not number grades so you have no idea where you are. He tells you to figure it out. I hope you get Trajos who is nicer and a much more engaged and interesting teacher, and interested in helping his students. Drajpuch milks the system, taking lots of days off. Trust me, you do not want him. He does not give you the benefit of the doubt and is not invested. Show More Show Less

06/10/12 - He knows US history very well and is a fun teacher. Contrary to popular belief, we actually did work in class, although most of it came from questions students had. The curriculum might change next year, but this past year it helped to read Divine, Amsco, and the ch. summaries online with the know-and-do list for each test. He grades essays a little harshly, but it helps for the AP test. He wants you to come in to see him and he can really help you. You have to work hard for that grade, though. Show More Show Less

06/01/12 - Mr Drajpuch is a fantastic teacher. He taught me so much this year. His classes are really fun and he is really easy going, but we still learn a lot at the same time. Awesome teacher! Show More Show Less

05/15/12 - definitely one of my favorite teachers of all time. probably the hardest APUSH teacher, he's definitely worth getting. Just remember: God Hates the Whigs, No one, and i mean NO ONE listens to william jennings bryan, he doesn't care, and thats capitalism baby. theres winners and losers. Also remember that President Taft carried the weight of his party Show More Show Less

01/19/12 - An absolute disgrace to New Trier's prestigious history. An alien residing on planet Earth. Seriously, just look at his face. Show More Show Less

08/24/11 - Let's be honest, you cannot go into this class expecting to learn everything you need to know for the tests in the time allotted. Mr. Drajuch knows that, so don't expect him to teach you much about US history in class. Do expect to learn about Tom Brady and bagels though. You know, the important things. He is very amusing, but the brunt of the workload falls on you... and the textbook, be prepared to marry that thing. I'm glad I had him as a teacher though, he's a good guy. Show More Show Less
