Unfortunately, Mr Volpi has retired at this point. That being said, AP US History was a challenging course since I haven't taken an AP class before. However, Mr. Volpi always found a way to make classtime light hearted and informative. He is very knowledgeable about this subject and has a lot of experience with teaching students for the AP exam. I thought I was gonna get a C in his class at first, but after good habits and talking to him after class I got an A and a 5 on my AP exam! recommended!

Without a doubt the most humble and friendly teacher at the school. He's the type of person that is full of cool facts and lessons but won't force you to learn if you aren't willing to...if you want to learn, you'll learn from the coolest ol guy eva!

I had him for honors, so the students were terribly rude, but he was very patient. You could ask questions and he'd explain it however many ways till you understood. The smartest person I've ever met hands down. Awesome teacher and caring person!

He is one of the best teachers ever. He comes from the South, and he sure knows Southern hospitality. His class is really great and he's a fun teacher.

I love Mr. Volpi! By far my favorite teacher, he seemed like a grandpa to me. I often found myself coming in early to see him and going to his class during my lunch/advisement, he has an adorable/really funny personality and a seemingly endless pool of facts. He made us all laugh with his quirky information about presidents and historical events. Very lovable and memorable teacher! I had him last year!

He's a really chill teacher and a cool person! He does get off track a lot during class discussions but I learned a ton from him this year. Basically if you treat him with respect he'll do the same back :) Probably my favorite teacher of all time! His class (besides the AP exam aspect) is a no-stress class! Wish I could have him again!
