Mr. Jones is an experience to say the least. He is very knowledgable in history. But very unorganized and sometimes does't know how to teach the information that he knows. I had him for 2 years and in both classes we didn't learn all of the material we were suppose to. Therefore, he just gave us a study sheet for the regent. If you are not good in social studies you should't take his class. Other than that he is a great person, as long as you're on his good side.

Jones is a great guy, but is not the best teacher. I got along well with him because I was able to teach him some stuff about history. He can sometimes play favorites but he curves everyones grades. Can't blame the guy for wanting kids to pass. I'm a former student of his and the man is very knowledgeable. Great guy, really funny but he lectures a lot and if your not into the topic then you may fall asleep.

Mr. Jones is a cool guy and has a really fun class, but he doesn't prepare you enough for the AP. He moves too slow and doesn't test you enough or give you enough grades. Rely on the textbook.

Nice man but he can not focus. He is all over the place, disorganized and slow in his lectures. You have to rely on yourself and your textbook to get through the info for AP

Mr Jones is the man, if you take some initiative and dont expect him to babysit and walk you through teh AP test you will do fine, he treats you like an adult

Jones is a great, down to earth guy, his only issues are his wild tangents which I must say are frequent, but overall i'd recommend taking his course.

Lets see...his pace is incredibly slow, he fools around more than the class, and he is irresponsible. I could have learned more from the janitor.
