i had him for world history... i'm horrible at history bc i have memory issues and he made an example out of me. if he wanted to scare people about studying he would call on me and two other kids all in a row. he was terrifying. he also humiliated me in front of the class bc my mom brought my work to school when i had pneumonia. tests are hell.
he's really cool if you're a "normal" student. he taught us about basic philosophy (love me some plato) and was pretty fun when he wasn't lecturing.

Frip is one of the few amazing teachers at Miramonte. He is very knowledgable and extremely personable. Loves a good debate, I would recommend strong participation in all of his classes. His tests are extremely difficult, but often are curved well and not a huge portion of your grade. It should not be too hard to get a least a B, and if you work a little extra, an A is feasible. Definitely find a way to take one of his classes.

I had Mr. Frippiat for AP Comparative Government. The class was incredibly challenging but was incredibly interesting as Mr. Frippiat was dilated on the topics with very interesting and pragmatic information. Though initially intimidating, Frippiat is easily one of the most entertaining and knowledgeable teachers at Miramonte. The wild gesticulation of his arms followed by the rapid delivery of interesting information keeps the class amusing and fascinating.

he was a hard teacher, but a good guy... helped me when i didnt understand what was going on, even though i think he hated me with a passion. once he saw that i was trying though, he really helped me, and once he saw that i cared about my grade, i went from an F to a C+ in less than a 1/4 of the year... great guy, fully think that you should try to get him if you can.
