Father Lacasse knows his stuff, of course some of his classwork is difficult, you will thank yourself later on in life if you listen to some of what he has to teach.
Most people are always initially afraid of Father. Most of the time it's just because he's a priest. Once you get to know him he's really cool. Of course he might be stricter than most teachers, but he prepares you for college really well. You should only taken this class if you're serious about grades and want to perform well in college.
Fr. Jim is unlike anyother teacher I have ever had. He held high standards and even though I was above the rest, I didn't meet them. Same as 7-11-04. Didn't let me go to honors <_<
Once you know him, you love him. Fr. LaCasse is more than what people say. He's awesome and a really interesting guy.
Extremely hard, but very cool outside classroom. The man is walking encyclopedia. Trust me, ask him anything. Good guy, get to know him.
