To me, this man was far more than just a teacher. He was a hero, a role model. A father. If you are lucky enough to be taught by this transcendent figure, consider yourself blessed. He will change your life in ways I never thought imaginable.
great teacher overall
Stuart Symons is the greatest teacher I have ever had in my entire life. Never have I encountered a teacher with a youthful rejuvenation like him. He makes me love the class like no one else could. In addition to this, he never has a day where he is not dressing like a model. He makes my mornings so much more interesting. I hope he reciprocates my adoration.
takes things way too seriously, gives basic and unhelpful notes that are useless for the actual AP, grades essays way too harshly and gives unreasonable explanations and tips. hes a nice- ISH dont get me wrong and his class is great but an all around bad teacher.
Mr. Symons is the absolute best! Two years in a row with him (APWH and APUSH) = complete blessing. He doesn't hold grudges, is really understanding to your point of view, and knows how to teach effectively to a classroom of high school students.
His sarcasm hurts sometimes but hey those presentations are better than like 90% of the school. BUT if the projector doesn't work, hes gonna write on the board and LOL GL.
I liek that he no play favorites but liek if you get on his bad side its bye-bye for you.
He's a pretty helpful teacher and his jokes can ease you up a bit. But his homework and tests can be challenging and he tends to choose favorites.
the greatest teacher you will ever get.
THE REALEST HOMIE IN THE GAME. ANYONE WHO HAS HIM HAS BEEN BLESSED BY GOD
Because of his class, I've come to love history . . . He's a pretty good teacher and has a good sense of humor
was the best teacher ever. :) made a lot of funny jokes during class and his lesson plans were organized so that students could actually remember what they learned.
Starts the class with either a funny story, or an interesting historical fact. Although he does give a lot of homework, if you do well on them, then you will do well in the class. He seems like a friendly teacher, as he says hi when he passes by you in the hallways.
his tests are meant to trick you, i feel, and also he can be boring. Yet, he doesn't get mad often and his notes are very well drawn.
He is one of the greatest teachers I've had. He knows what he's teaching and the class is fun too! Mocktrial :D His tests are okay, but study. I loved playing Jeopardy, and he doesn't get mad a lot.:)
great teacher (: loved the notes we took in class and i felt well prepared for the ap world test even though we didn't do as much homework as the other class. the cartoons helped! :)
mr. symons is definitely one of the coolest teachers in the school. he doesn't give much homework, gives good class notes, and is pretty entertaining. his tests can be a little hard though.
great teacher- great notes and tests are ok if you study... i am not so good at hitory but was willing to take ap after his class
Although I only had Mr. Symons for most of the second term (Mr. Frankl left), I can say with complete confidence that he is an excellent US History teacher. If you pay attention in class, and take careful notes (in addition to doing your homework), it is fairly easy to ace his exams. Although the term project was fairly long, he was very fair in grading it. He only got visibly angry once in the term, during the last week when the A/C wasn't working and several people fell asleep. I wish I had him all year.
my favorite teacher in the whole school i was on his mock trial and moot court teams junior year and senior year as captain. He is hilarious and adorable and funny. take his mock trial class junior year and you will never ever regret it.
he's a great teacher. he's very organized and his tests arent that bad. just look over your notes.
good teacher. his notes are very organized and easy to look over. tests are very reasonable. small problem is his lessons are very dull and boring, but it all evens out.
GREAT TEACHER - EVEN BETTER MOCK TRIAL COACH - MR SYMMONS - IT WASNT UR FAULT WE LOST - the plaintiffs messed it up
pretty good teacher. his lessons can get a little bit boring sometimes, but overall he's pretty good
Mr. Symons is a great asset to Bronx Science. He's smart, witty, and a great teacher. Interesting enough and easy enough grader. Great guy.
I guess hes a good teacher, and nice, TO THE CLASS. whenever he sees me in the hallway he gives me a look, and I dont know why, and I dont like it
pretty good techer, but his class is sooooooo boring. and he could make the stuff he's teaching so much more interesting too.
hes cool, but boring, and not a good grader. He takes off points for no reason.
From a 2k3 alum, The KING!!! look forward to a fun ride if your in his con law/eco class!!!
I so don't agree with anything anyone said about him. Good teacher, yeah right. I mean, can i say one word without looking at his lesson plan.
i love him! hes not boring, and hes a really nice guy!
Absolutely one of the best teachers at Bronx Science he is an asset to the school. He's pretty easy but he definitely makes you learn the stuff. He's real nice2
he's a great teacher. i'm so sad i don't have him anymore cuz he was great. i learnt and had fun. knows lots of simpsons trivia, like me
the best social teacher hands down. makes ss so much fun and just so nice and gives u the grade u deserve and bumps u up if do well in class discussions.da best
very very good teacher, very nice guy, extremely helpful
awesomest teacher, first social studies course that i actually learned and did well in...yay SYMONS!!!
VERY good teacher. for the first time i understand global. i actually participate. gives good grades and gives out candy on holidays
He jsut came recently from another school. I'm in his 8th pd global 4 class. Just copy and review the notes for tests. He's taking us to the model UN, very cool
Best, coolest and funniest global teacher ever. Easy class but very hard grader.
you're so cool mr. symons! your little stories about your kids and stuff make my day. i wish the ppl in our class werent so disruptive. then you could go back to being nice and not give us pop quizes!
greatest social studies teacher and not boring at all. not to mention, a great sense of style
very cool teacher. the ties are awesome!!! puahahahaha
really good at explaining stuff, cool guy, but the stock market is still boring. BORING. maybe i will invest in some caffine pills for the next few weeks.
could try something bout control, otherwise no complaints at all.
i think its the ties, well, it is the ties. hes the man! ITS ADORABLE!
He's a good teacher on the most basic level, but not very challenging. He loses his cool sometimes, and yells at the class over little things. We're second term seniors...what do you want from us?
Passed me when I should have failed with a 10. Enough said.
funny teacher with a great knowledge of the Simpsons
