The first few months of his class were extremely difficult, his FRQ's and tests mostly. But overall, Mr. Wool practically hands you everything you need to study and prepare for them. The note-taking was helpful, and he would go over anything you didn't understand. He had study sessions for the weeks before the AP Test and gave review packets left and right. His tests were so hard, that by the time the AP Test hit, it was a breeze. He wasn't a bad teacher, just a 'little' opinion-biased.

Mr.Wool is genuinely a good person. You can definitely tell that he loves what he does, es very passionate about teaching and government. Hes always kind to his students and I think he tries to be as helpful as possible. However, he is the hardest teacher I've ever had. AP Gov is the only class I've ever gotten a D in, and it was honestly heart breaking. I, and everyone in his class, tried so hard to do well. Its an *extremely* difficult course. Very interesting, but so so hard for a sophomore.

He is the hardest teacher I have ever had. He is very biased and his tests are graded to where you will only receive credit if your answer specifically matches up with what he is looking for. He talks more in class about news articles, rather than the subject matter that we were tested on.

Mr. Wool. Good - He knows his history very well and his lectures are easy to understand. Bad - His political views are on the far right and he attempts to impose them upon his students.

A very good, but strict teacher. I had him for AP, so I was seen as a good "angel". He makes it seem like college, but it is actually not that bad.

He was probably the hardest teacher I ever had in high school. Hes really passionate about what he teaches and hes a tough grader. I hear hes a gift to have for AP but if you just have him for regular old government like I did then you're doing alot more hard work for the class than you would for the other government teachers.

Mr. Wool is a great teacher- he puts forth a good effort to educate- students actually leave class having learned something. He's a great teacher, and anyone's lucky to have a class with him.

Mr.Wool...your class was bland. Not everyone can learn well from lectures! Many students agree with me when I say that your class is the worst AP out there. Switch to politics!

His government class was pretty easy. He'd mostly just give us notes and then quiz us on them. The best days were when we had debates. Those were always fun and interesting. He wasn't cool because he didn't allow calc games, and he's 200% republican.

I actually started to like history after his AP class. It was a little tough at times, but all the hard work paid off in the end.

Mr. Wool's AP US History is definately a tough class, but he's made me appreciate our history. I wish I had more teacher's as inspired and energetic as him.

If ALL teachers were as demanding, inspirational, creative and intelligent as this man, teachers would NEVER be blamed for the failure of the school system.
