the class wasn't an "easy A" but Atkinson is a greeaatt teacher. As long as you do the work he gives you and listen to his lectures you do great. He explains everything clearly and answers any questions you have. Also he makes biology really interesting by applying it practically and not just making you cram terms and definitions. Some people think it's too hard of a class because he makes you really understand what you're talking about, but I LOVED IT! He is also great humored and a nice person

Mr. Atkinson is an amazing teacher. He is funny and keeps our attention on him. All these people who complain that he doesn't "teach" obviously don't know HOW to study or listen to him in class. During class, he gives lectures and explains all the notes he gives you. I guess you can say that he doesn't thoroughly go step-by-step and point out where the answers are located in the book, but that doesn't mean he doesn't teach. He is a very helpful teacher if you seek him out. P.S.- He's British.

Mr. Atkinson is so far my favorite science teacher and I will always remember him. He has an amazing personality and has the great ability to keep his class interested and listening to him throughout the period. The best part about his class was his reviews on the information right before the test. This was what clarified everything for me and I wish he would start teaching chemistry.

Mr. Atkinson was one of the worst teachers I have ever had. He was very unhelpful, gave confusing notes, and never answered questions clearly. He was constantly playing solitaire on his computer, and

Not a bad person. And not a good teacher. Just a little psychologically impaired.

Didn't make everything clear, but if you asked him to explain something he'd to his best to clarify. Gives out a lot of homework, but it's always due the following Monday so it's not too difficult.

You get a decent amount of work, but he always explains everything well and takes time to answer your questions. He's funny and considerate. Not too many like him, but I think he's great.
