Mr. Gerald Gruss is sometimes confusing and sometimes helpful. The homework is easy to do at times and sometimes it isn't. When people ask questions on the homework he gives answers but it isn't as useful as you would think. He is a chill and funny teacher but too hard to understand. One thing that bugged me the most was the "Celebration of Knowledge" (his tests). If you study the whole chapter for multiple hours it won't help. The test has nothing to do with the chapter!

I do not like him at all. He teaches well but tests do not makes sense. If you have Arstakis you are set because she gives you every chance to bring it up but he does not.

You feel like you understand everything in class and study for a few hours and youre good. When the tests comes, it has questions that are nothing like the notes. Very hard tests and tricky. The "all of the above" and "none of the above are confusing" I feel like he does it on purpose and doesnt want students to suceed. give us a break

He is an exact replica of Paul G. Hewitt. He is a really fake teacher, he smiles at your face then gives you an N or U in your report card. Though I wouldn't blame him, my friend and I were a major headache in his class. Overall, he is a godly flamingo looking man with an electric blue Nissan.

Mr. Gruss is a funny and kind teacher. He tries his best to explain the lessons clearly but the class still seems a to be hard. I don't know if it is me or the teacher. The day he starts a new chapter, you are most confident that you understand the material. But then comes his rather confusing tests. The tests are really hard. You know when you are on a question and you think there might be are 2 correct answers? Well his tests are like that. But not just one question, almost all are like that.
