I've had Mr. McCarthy for five weeks since I transferred and he has made biology one of my favorite classes. He is a hard teacher, but that's how education should be because that is the only way you will learn. He is funny, helpful, and a legend.

Best teacher at Serra. People seem to think his class his hard but really people don't try, do the homework last minute, and don't study for tests. If you ask him for help after class and show you learned something you'll have an A in his class. Super nice guy with a great sense of humor.

Willis B McCarthy is a legend. Dude wrote a book, played college basketball, competed in long distant races, lived in Jamaica temporarily, and knows everything about science. Hard teacher, he doesent let anything slip by. Do your work effeciently and well, take notes in class, and study and you will be good. Very nice guy, has many great stories, funny, and a good guy to talk too. Great teacher!

Willis!!!! He is most definitely a hard teacher but he helped prepare me for college Chem. He may be a little strict but he is an insanely good teacher. He knows his stuff better than my college professor. If you put time into this class, you will benefit from it, not only from high school, but also later on, down the road. He's also very flexible with office hours and is willing to help anytime. If you don't do well in this class that's your fault because he helps anyone who wants to learn.

McCarthy isn't easy, but he is a really nice guy and incredibly interested in Chemistry. He'll tell you not to do something, and if you do it, he'll be more excited to explain why it happened than to punish. He doesn't take crap, though, true.
