AP Euro has an unreal level of difficulty, by the far the most challenging class in the school. The guy is awesome though; he literally knows everything which has ever occurred in Europe. Be prepared to spend hours upon hours over the weekend and weeknights laboring over a textbook, and get ready to receive lower grades on writing and tests than you ever have before. It will, however, prepare you for any other AP, it taught me how to study efficiently and write well (Took the class in 2015).

Florio is extremely knowledgeable about what he teaches and his lectures are entertaining. Just know that his tests are borderline impossible. There's also a ton of writing. The difficulty of his class forces you to develop good study habits in order to do well. If you like history, take the class. It'll make you a much better writer and thinker. Just beware he doesn't remember the dates of upcoming quizzes/tests/essays sometimes, which can be frustrating.

Ap Euro was the hardest class I have ever taken in my life. The exams were impossible and half the time I fell asleep reading the textbook at 3 in the morning. Otherwise Florio is awesome. He literally knows everything that has ever happened in Europe. His lectures are great but you will love/hate him because the class is awesome but then you're like outside of class sucks because of it.

Great teacher. Terrifying person. Insane level of difficulty. I'm in college now and my American Politics class is easier than his.

Mr. Florio is the most outstanding teacher I have encountered thus far. I have never been more interested in and challenged by a class than I have in his AP European History course. Congratulations t

He is tough!!! but he's also hilarious and that kinda makes him tolerable. He takes points away for the slightest error, which is challenging
