Had him last year. Very quirky guy; he would have weird habits like playing taking care of business before every class. Overall Mr. Newell is a fun guy and a great teacher.

One of my favorite teachers. JK Newell is a great guy and a fantastic teacher. Gotta love the supplement and those physics online videos. I wouldn't have traded him for anyone, but now he's gone :'(

He's a great teacher overall. Helped me get by the Physics SAT and the first semester of AP Physics (had him for CP).

Chill guy. You can tell he knows his stuff and he teaches pretty clearly. Homework is never checked, but you can't pass Physics Honors without doing it. If you need extra help, he is very helpful and

His tests and material are college-level; there's no question about it. It can be tough, but he teaches a sophistication of Physics that surpasses that of many other schools.

We thought he was a convict from Maine (cauz he went by John) that found a physics notebook (notice all his sheets are in a womans handwriting). But hes a good guy and funny.

His grading policy is pretty unfair, and the small amount of questions on tests/quizzes make it difficult to get an A. But I he teaches well and is a nice guy.

His grading system is geared against the student; it's so obvious (scaling quizzes up from out of 10 points to out of 100). His class is boring.

AP phsyics was tough but he prepares you well for the AP C test. The homework policy is strict but helps to force the information into your brain.
