It's ap comp sci, smart dedicated ppl will get 5's. reiske lets dedicated people receive passing score by emphasizing what u have to know and the bare minimum. He's not strict which was awesome for smart people who knew the material already. Those who says he doesn't teach were probably playing tetris all day and didnt bother to listen to the crucial point scrapping pointers from reiske, who grades tests. low-effort techniques are easy but so important to garner points. he wants to save us time.
Overall, he is a good teacher to have. He does have mood swings, either because people cheat or you ask stupid questions. He doesn't teach most of the time since you learn from George Bush. The tests are definitely harder than the projects or lessons, so MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE MATERIAL. Other than that, he's chill on Fridays so you basically have a half-hour to do whatever you want!
I think that Mr. Reiske, although very chill, was not very good. He simply sat at his desk and emailed his notes and then did nothing. he didn't not really teach and capitalized not the fact that the AP test was easy. I had to self-study the entire AP test on my own. He is extremely bi-polar. If you are not talented, you sink very quickly in that class.
He lets people play halo which makes him chill and kind of cool. But overall, he is not a competent teacher.
Trust reiske. Follow him to an easy passing grade on AP exam. I am in college now majoring in compsci thanks mostly to him.
Great teacher! Just don't slack off or do anything stupid.
its pretty cool that he opens his room up every day so i can always stop by and finish my labs and stuf
i agree, he's pretty chill. just don't use an ink pen on your quiz or homework. i learned my lesson early.
when you ask a question, prepare yourself for an extremely complicated response. Other than that, hes pretty chill...when your not bombarded with labs n all that is. Other people's comments preetty much sum it up ;]
Very easy and nice teacher, just needs to teach more
i love zero period. it is as laid back as possible for an AP class but i think that is because reiske respects us. hope so:} like others said, he has a long drive to work so once in a while he is a minute or two or three late for class. but he is very fair with our tardies and never gets on us about them. overall, i am glad i have this class and this teacher.
runs class well. some kids wonder why he gets upset whey they do work for other classes when they should be programming. he is very fair. it is hard to get less than a B in his class unless you goof off.
the person below completely catches him correctly. he doesnt want anyone to fail his class and hopes that people do well but he cant just throw the grade at you. its just that sometimes he gets pretty angry at the class when no one understands him and that might be a problem when he just sit and bother going around to ask if anyone needs help. disregarding that, he's an OKAY teacher. nothing really good or bad about him.
Overall he is an O.K. teacher. He did not prepare us well or at all in this case. He almost never teaches, and gets mad if you ask him questions. But overall if you just do all your work, skim the material, you should get an A and a 4 on the AP test.
Cool Teacher. Just do your work and you'll have a great time playing counter strike, halo, starcraft :D. Watch out for his mood swings
he is ok. he cares about students you can see that but he doesn't teach too much. But when you ask him stuff he will explain. he allows to do whatever we want after we are done with labs and stuff. we played Starcrafts and Halo in class and he is ok with it i guess!!
Awesome comp sci teacher. Very easy, and yet very helpful. He also observes his students for any 'intelligent' programming to improve his own. He isn't strict about his class, and yet he manages to keep everyone happily on task(unless they are done). Marks of a great teacher. Very humorous too. You can also tell his mood on his face, but for the most part, he never lets it get in the way or influence that day's class. Favoritism exists only in the form of extra praise.
I could play games a lot in AP Computer Science, and now I have him for computer game programming, even more games hahaahhaha!! But yea great guy
his class's pretty chill for the most part. and i actually learned stuff in his class. got a 5 on the ap test w/o much reviewing. keep urself on task n u should do ok
very cool teacher, chill class, but you have to study on your own for the ap test ... but overall, reiske rocks =)
he is a kool teacher... even though he hated me cuz i played games all day long in front of him
awesome teacher! i had him over the summer for comp sci honors, do ur work and u get an A, and he lets you play games!! gotta love him =)
he is kinda of a person who jus let u be.. i like tha.. and we still hav fun
MR REISKE ROCKS! Hes very nice if you know him in person, very solemn but very cool!
very cool teacher. can play occasional games! easy grading, very high boost to your AP scores.
slime all the way! dubba dubba dubba! this is 3rd year now..ROFL
Most relaxing class you will ever had. I had him for honors comp sci (c++) ap comp sci (c++), and now ap comp sci (Java) Gaming time!
fun guy!...he'll help you a lot if you need it, and really let you know if you're doing well. You can tell that he cares.
Game time in class =) math/logical thinking helpful. pretty helpful, but can sound harsh. If you're too shy to ask for help sit next to a smart person ;)
cool teacher, allows mostly game playing time but you still learn well
hes coo even tho he hes weird attitude sometimes. give you a lil when your late but dats it. allows plent of game time.
Feels like he doesn't teach, but i got an AWESOME score on my AP test. So i guess he's good. COOL teacher too.
Awesome - Just do what he tells you - wierd students however (hey its computers)

Need to get along with the fobs. And put back counter-strike
Drives Mustang, so can't be too bad, sends me to Taco Lita to buy him lunch.
Quake 2 rocks!! I was the 2nd best guy in class!! SEI was the #1..gonna beat him
Cool guy.. cool enough to let us play games in class.
Best teacher ever! So Nice That He Gave His Period 4 Class All A's (wink,wink).
knows how to prepare you for AP exam,but the pokeman bulletin board is too much.
He's an okay teacher but is obsessed with pokemon and golf...
I passed the Ap exam with a good score, that mean he's doing his job right
