I was his Student aid a couple of years, but he is a man that you could never forget! He has always taught me to go on with life with a smile. This man, he's very dedicated, hard working, and I would definitely recommend him to any of the students at Capo currently! Take AP Euro, or AP Art History with him! You won't regret it!

Huge ego, but an intelligent teacher. While many say the class is very hard, if you put a little work, it is really not that hard to get an A. It is very easy to just tune out in his class for the entire year, but you will learn a lot if you pay attention to his lectures and take notes. Never insult the Irish in his class.

His class starts off the year rather difficult...especially if it is your first AP, or if you had AP World (Carson) the year before...however, once you learn how he does things and what he expects fro

He's got an ego the size of the entire school but that's what makes him fun. He's very laidback and has a high pass rate on the AP test.

I don't know Mr C but I can tell all of you Capo students that you are lucky to have a teacher like him. This, from a teacher in the Santa Ana District. Hang tough! Teachers should MAKE YOU THINK!

Art History with Dr. C is quite an experience. Study the images and listen to the lectures and you'll do fine in the class and also on the exam. Offers review sessions and great insight. And well, current events daily ;)

Awesome guy with amazing experience and stories. He's blunt - which is a good thing. He can be a little harsh but he makes his students better people. If he likes you, easy class.
