Bruh, he so bad. No one take APCS unless you get Riskie. I didn't learn anyTHING. It was all self-study. He doesn't teach at all. Literally, do not take it!!! You will fail the AP test.
I have Mr. Zurla for AP Computer Science and he is so unnecessarily strict about tardies. If you walk in as the bell rings, he marks you tardy and calls your parents after 3 times... like honestly why... His lectures are pretty boring and people feel pressured to ask him anything because we are all very intimidated by him since he is really sarcastic. I have never dropped a class before but I am really considering dropping his class.
I had Mr. Zurla as a calculus teacher and he was pretty great, especially if you're an upperclassman. He's a pretty chill teacher, so as long as you put in a decent amount of effort and do your homework (like actually do it) you should do fine in his class. I admit, there were some days when his mellow voice lures you into a deep sleep... FIGHT IT! You don't want to miss out on any of the lessons because you'll use what you learn more than once over the school year.
An amazing Calculus teacher! I had him for 15-16 year and he was so incredibly helpful. He loves when people ask questions, and his explanations are amazing. He goes step by step and does not skip over any steps, no matter how easy they may seem. Prepares you for his exams completely, and if you do your homework and listen in class you are set. Overall, very great at teaching and was very nice to those who respected him and cared about calculus and about learning. No complaints whatsoever.
Great teacher!! Difficult at times but always fair. Very respectful of everyone in the room.
I love Mr. Zurla! He's a great Calculus teacher and also teaches AP Computer science and coaches golf. He makes everything easy to understand even though sometimes his voice can be a little monotonous. I'm not usually that good at math but he has solidified my knowledge.
Comp Sci! Helps you if you dont understand what you're doing
Obviously has his favorites. An okay teacher. Tests are pretty easy. Only teacher for calculus.
One of the better math teachers I've had in a while. I have him for Calculus and he really cares about your learning. He would go over the concepts over and over again if you don't understand them. Work hard and you'll get an A no problem. Although, his monotone voice is a bit sleep inducing.
I don't like his teaching method. His jokes aren't even funny.
Like any other math class, the easiness is only okay if you do your work and keep up. Zurla is willing to help and is pretty clear. Beware if you have him for Calculus, you may fall asleep due to his monotone-ness.
best math teacher i ever had! easy calculus class he explains things clearly and he has some funny "mathethician" jokes. if you work you get an A.
great teacher, cares a lot about his students, but know that you need to be a hard worker.
Amazing teacher!!! He is always there to help. Your lucky if you have him for math
MR ZURLA IS THE COOLEST CALCULUS TEACHER THAT EVER LIVED. - HIS FAVORITE CLASS, PERIOD FIVE.
cool teacher. had him for comp sci the summer before freshman year and he let us download aim and play games after we finish our work (usually we have like an hour to goof around)
pretty good teacher. he actually offers to help you outside of class if you don`t understand something.
evil yet funny ... he made evil jokes that were very funny. had fun in his class
he's the greatest teacher i have ever had...i gave up AP art history to AP stat just hope that i can have him again...
BETTER than Nairi. I had both teachers because I transfered with changed classes. Nairi's tests were impossible. Zurla is a fun guy.
Real lazy guy(does not prepare for lessons however we learn from it).. cool guy though.. His test are pretty hard..
mr zurla is awesome. just is. been in his class already. two years with him. awesomest teacher ever. doesnt play favorites. i love him.
AWESOME TEACHER! he helps you when you have problems and almost never gets mad, unless you bother him in class. very helpful and a great guy to talk to. =)
makes math enjoyable by adding sarcasm in between lectures.
really cool teacher for stats dunno about other subjects but the class was easy and a great senior year class
Completely played favorites to his "senior men-woman"
Mr. Zurla is really nice and sarcastic, and he has a great personality. =)
xtra credit for winter dance. what more could you want

Good plans for class, always prepared, but makes you run to class everyday.
He's tough, but he's a great teacher, I learned so much
seems nice but sometimes is very unfair and can get mad easily
