Dr. Scanlon is one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. As a student in the class of 1990, Dr. Scanlon was an innovative mentor, teacher and friend. Decades later, not only did he remember me, but he remembered my family, where we lived and what we had been up to since we last spoke. As a parent now, I am honored to entrust my sons to his instruction and simply expose them to him as a person. There are VERY people in this world as special as Dr. Scanlon.
James Scanlon was my 1E homeroom teacher ("1E for Excellence"). I reflect back often how much this man had a positive influence on my life. Did not appreciate it as much at the time, but realize it today. After all, it was the late 60's! Great person. Always handled himself with dignity. Excellent teacher.

Doctor Scanlon is amazing. What a nice guy overall, wise, funny, always has something intelligible and beneficial to say, even about unrelated topics. Excellent, excellent man in general.
Great teacher, even better person. Teaches you everything you need to know about the real world. Third year in his class and it's still a learning experience.
Haters gonna hate, but I REALLY don't see why this guy doesnt have a perfect score. Great teacher, great guy, he really cares about the kids. Anyone that thinks otherwise shouldn't be at the school.
tells good stories and helps u on test if u dont know the answer
Tends to rip on his students, but it's funny. I was the target of a lot of his jokes because I didn't really care about the class, but he was a good guy, a good teacher, and a very funny person.
He's awesome. His class is really interactive and its impossible to space out in because he gets everyone involved in one way or another. Great teacher and an extremely cool guy.
He needs to stop wasting time on putting on a performance and start teaching more. Otherwise, he is a good guy and cares about his students.
He needs to stop bragging about things that no one cares about.
Great teacher. His advice about college was invaluable!
He's a good guy overall, but is a bit eccentric and random. Barely ever teaches Latin, but we learn other stuff so its all good.
Nice Job! Great teacher, though i dont understand why hes not principle anymore....teaches latin as well as your future, knows, uh, just about everything ya know what im sayin
(Here's he.^) You learn a lot more than just Latin in this class. Dr. Scanlon is a funny guy and a great teacher, but should also be taken seriously. Who thought Latin could be so fun? (Here's everybody else_.)
Endings for the present tense? -o -as -at, -amus -atis -ant, but what's the word for farmer??? Great guy, good teacher. If you're failing his class it's because you don't care.
Dr. S...Retire already. The game may have passed you by.
He rests on his reputation but he really isn't good anymore.
He doesn't seem to understand that teaching is his first obligation. We have to listen to so much garbage that does not relate to school.
He teaches Latin somewhat, but teaches you about a lot of other things. He's a virtual bank of information on almost everything, and he's pretty funny, too.
An outstanding educator to look up to (and quite hilarious, too). Bosco is where it is today because of him. He knows when to be agressive and when not to.
he is possibly the best man any of us will ever have the pleasure of dealing with... he IS don bosco
Finds himself way more important than the rest of us do.
legend, yea, in his mind. full of himself, sanctimoius, boooooooooooooring.
If he'd only stop bragging about himself and his accomplishments, he'd be OK.
His sense of self-importance is out of control. Truth be known - no one really cares.
The best there is, the best there ever was. The Wayne Gretzky of DBP teachers. He is a legend in his own time, and deservedly so.
Excellent man, friendly, funny, and smart. What more can you ask for?
The Icon of Bosco. You either love him, or if you're in the universal 5% minority, you hate him. He definitely knows what he's talking about & can teach it too.
Best Class ever- Comedy Hour, but u also learn Latin- BAM,BAS,BAT,BAMUS,BATIS,BANT-BO,BIS,BIT,BIMUS,BITIS,BUNT
the best! he defines Bosco and tries to help everyone
Doc WAS the best principal we ever had- you're right- knew everyone and was genuinely good to everyone- too bad Fr. John Connolly came along senior year...
He tells us alot of funny,interesting stories. Also, he knows alot about Latin.
Dr. Scanlon...is the man....his class is the best...and he knows more about everything than anyone ive ever met....and his stories are the best
The Doc is an extremely qualified teacher. I heard that he was an awesome principal.
keeps telling us how great we are and expects us to think he is too. Not sincere, overrated. How was he ever principal? why isnt he anymore? hmmm...
Doc is the best teacher ever, who else can always make the half court shot. He leaves you ready for the world Watch out for people in the pink shirts '98 grad
