I am a former student of Mr. Purcell's from the mid 70s. He is the best teacher I had at Danbury High School. Why? He prepared me for my undergraduate years at Boston College. His exams and writing assignments laid the groundwork for what I could expect as an undergraduate.
To this day, I clearly remember his classes on the French and Russian revoloutions. I especially enjoyed visiting the U.S.S.R.
I Had Mr. Purcell back in 1975...He is by far the best teacher I have ever had. It has been over 35 years since I had him and I still remember his unique and interesting teaching style...LOVED HIM

He is a great teacher and makes things very interesting. However, he tends to pick favorites and stay with them to the point where it isolates others in class.
The hardest teacher in the school, and tends to be inconsiderate of his less-apt students. Still, easily the best teacher of honors students in the school.
dr purcell is a great history teacher because he loves history-he makes it easy to learn and understand
Dr. Purcell is a wonderful teacher. his teaching style is great. I learned alot from his class and he is a wonderful person.
Dr. Purcell is an amazing teacher. Everyone should take a class with him.
I learned so much from him...he just opens his heart up to everyone.
this is the best teacher on the whole planet. he should be a college profesor cuz of the way he teaches.
