Mr. Harrington is a great Chemistry Honors teacher and a terrifyingly smart man. He teaches you in a fast paced style that can be challenging for some students. Taking his AP Chemistry class is a completely different story. You MUST be prepared to teach yourself a lot of information.

I would say harringotn is a very smart man, but he does not have patience for students who are not straight A students. I recommend not taking his course if you are not extremely smart, or else your nights will be filled with anxiety and endless confusion of homework. For some people, just walking through his door is too much anxiety. Many people wind up dropping the class.

Very wise man who understands the credentials often affiliated with success in and outside the classroom. He will put in the effort to guide you (3%) as long as you are able to put in the work necessary to succeed (97%); just as it should be.

Mr Harrington is the best teacher you'll ever have in JGHS. Ever. Although he does give a lot of homework, and he does expect a lot from you, you will learn a heck of a lot more than what you'll ever learn in another science course He is extremely smart and he knows how to prepare his students- not only for the regents, but also for life in general. best teacher I've ever had. There needs to be more teachers like him. He is great. The people who complain about him are the people who are slackers

Best teacher I've ever had. He's tough, but knows chem forwards and backwards, and he does genuinely care about each of his students.

I'm not getting the whole "incredibly intimidating" thing. Sure, he's strict and he gives out a lot of work, but that compensates for being the best science teacher in the whole school.

After 2 years with him, i can say Harrington is one the better teachers in the school. He gives a lot of work and many of his students may disagree with him, but we do respect him.

He's probably more money than Rose in preparing you, but much tougher. Just be sure that you like U2 and that you can take his Dr. Evil impressions.
