He knows a lot and explains stuff if you ask him. He's also really lenient and nice. The class was basically run by the textbook, so in class lectures don't really help you for the tests (they aren't as specific as the content in the textbook). I had him for human anatomy, and getting an A isn't too difficult.

I had Ivie in his last year of teaching. He's one of the most passionate teachers in the school, with a plethora of knowledge about any type of biology, and a whole lot of teaching experience. Though his teaching style is relatively passive and his tests can be insane, his classes have been enjoyable and extremely informative, and he's always willing to help you out despite his cranky persona. He's also one of the funniest teachers I've ever had, and I've loved his class throughout the year.

Mr. Ivie is a fantastic teacher who will be missed once he officially retires after this year. His teaching style is very sarcastic and unforgiving, but he combines that with extremely high subject knowledge and is a genuinely great teacher. I know his jokes, "roasts," and often overwhelming tests will be missed. I've never met a teacher more thoroughly dedicated to the subject they teach, and Ivie's passion for biology is clear. He will be sorely missed, and I really enjoyed having him.

I had him for both AP Bio and Human Anatomy. Some of the best classes ever! Unfortunately, he is retiring after this year. His AP Bio class was pretty hard with every detailed and difficult tests but if you have had him for AP Bio, Anatomy will be a piece of cake.

Mr. Ivie has probably created more physicians, dentists, and various healthcare-bound people in all of the Beaverton school district. My class alone created 9 physicians, and countless other Allied Health professionals. The one thing we have in common is we all had Mr. Ivie as our AP Biology teacher. Obviously association isn't causation, but he definitely played a role in our decision to pursue our careers. He deserves all the respect in the world, even if he plays cranky old man.

really cranky guy but super funny when he makes fun of kids that slack off. I have him for anatomy and its a very difficult class but he's super clear on what we need to know for the test. ALSO he may seem strict at first but he will always help you get your grade up and make things easier on you if you just ask for help. If you sit back and complain, he'll make fun of you but if you advocate for yourself then he will really help you out.

Nice teacher, pretty helpful, rounds up your grade. Not the most hardworking. Pretty much gives crazy hard multiple choice questions and doesn't prepare you, but your grade will be fine because of the reading guides (free credit) and the labs. Do your work and read the chapters and you'll be fine. If I were you I would try to learn some basic bio concepts before school starts- watch some Khan Academy videos or check out the textbook or something- the class is pretty fast paced.

Performance in his class is absolutely dependent on keeping up with assigned reading, natural given the large amounts of material he needs to cover. In-class lectures mostly amount to an overview of the reading, useless on his exams due to the level of detail necessary. Pretty sure he enjoys just acting like a grouchy old man, but it's an open secret that he's just a teddy bear underneath. That said, he has a very low tolerance for cheating, and if you're lazy in his class count on being mocked.

Mr. Ivie is by far my favorite teacher at Westview. His material is challenging, but he understands that its high school as well. If you're willing to go up and talk to him, he WILL always listen. And don't be intimitaded! He's really a big softy underneath it. He'll respect you and reward you for working hard, even if you're not the smartest in your class. And he's a teacher you want to respect you. He's just that cool folks.

Ivie is truth be told one of the best teachers at Westview, period. His tests are insanely hard but his 5-A rule makes up for it. His tests prepare you super well for the AP test so once you get a 5 your in class grade will be bumped up to an A. He may be old but he's knowledgeable and likes to help you learn. Don't slack off and always pay attention, he could care less if you don't care but he'll respect you more if you do care.

great science teacher. although his class is really hard it's not really his fault and not something i would hold against him. he's just teaching from a very hard subject to learn and it's hard so that you can pass the AP exam. he basically runs his class so that everyone can have the potential to get a 5 of the AP exam. he appreciates hard work. even if you aren't doing well, he knows you are trying and doesn't let that go unnoticed. very helpful.

I was in his AP Bio class. His tests were extremely difficult but it prepared me well for the AP exam -- I got a 5 with minimal studying (even though I failed most of Ivie's tests). If you get a 5, you automatically get an A in that class, so don't stress out if you're failing the tests right now. Overall he is difficult but a good and fair teacher with a good sense of humor.

Probably one of Westview's greatest teachers. He give you a hard time if you slack off, but he's pulling for your grade. Especially in Anatomy, he'll give like 30-40 points extra credit right before the final. Ivie's a funny man. He's definitely not easy though.

One of the coolest, most sarcastic teachers in WHS. He's a really great guy, but his AP Bio tests are impossibly evil. Even after the curve I consistently got C's, and I studied for his tests for hours. I'm used to getting high A's without any studying, so it was a blow to my GPA and ego. He doesn't prepare you for the tests (goes too fast), but he's such an awesome guy that it makes up for it. He'd be ideal for Advisory or AT. No grades. Must've done something right though because I got a 5 on the AP exam.
