His tests are extremely hard and if you don't study for them you will probably fail imo but he teaches A LOT and gets you prepared for even the SAT 2. He's really clear about what he teaches and answers his questions REALLY WELL. He knows a lot about biology so don't be scared to go to sgi if you have something you didn't completely understand. He grades his lab write ups quite harshly too so be careful of that. He's REALLY funny and his anecdotes are quite interesting.

Great teacher, possibly the best science teacher in the entire school, but tests are very hard and you will really have to study for them. However, you truly learn, and he makes the class interesting, even for someone who doesn't like biology at all. He's really nice, funny, and cool, and answers questions extremely well. You will be extremely prepared for the regents; it'll be a breeze compared to his tests.

Amazing teacher. He was and still is the best science teacher I've ever had. He explains everything incredibly well and really cares. I pity anyone whose never had the pleasure of being taught by him because he is honestly the best. His tests pretty hard, but if you study you'll be fine. His class always gets the highest regents grades because Mr.Figueras is most amazing science teacher in the whole school. I'm not exaggerating when I say, its like he was born to be a teacher.

One of the best teachers there is. His class is a challenge, but it's enjoyable and you actually learn. His tests are tough, but he's easy going and gives you opportunities to make up for it.

Mr. Figueras is the most dedicated biology teacher I have ever seen. He always gives us more than enough prep for tests, answers all our questions, and updates grades by the time we get home. He is also extremely well-versed in his concepts and he makes class fun and engaging. Whoever said he wants to "see the world burn" should not be attending Bronx Science.

I had him for summer school last year. By god he just wants to watch the world burn. He deliberately tries to fail you at first, by the first week I had a 50 in the class. he does, however, give you chances to redeem yourself with extra credit. He grades so strict, it's just ridiculous. I tried to transfer like 5 times.

How can you count a quiz that every student did poorly (75>)? You could at the least curve it. This counts as a grade on the teacher's part as well. Just means the kids didn't understand what you were teaching.
