Probably the best teacher at the school. He grades hw for accuracy which forces you to actually learn the material and will help your grade in the long run by having so many points. Test become easy after doing so much practice. Work load can be a lot but it's worth it

The best chem teacher in the department, prepares you very well for college chemistry. Know the common molar masses by heart—some tests can be long. Focuses on concepts over numbers. If you're in AP, you'll have to put in a good amount of work outside of class for the AP test, because he doesn't teach explicitly to the test, but he'll give you a strong foundation.

Mr. Dowling may seem hard at first, but to be honest, you are screwed if you don't get him. He is the only one that prepares you well for chemistry honors exams. Don't get me wrong his class is hard and a lot of work, but if you put in the effort, you can succeed in his class and understand the material better than the other Chem students

One of the smartest guys I have ever met in my life. Class is difficult, but if you are willing to put in the effort, he will meet you halfway and help you get a good grade in the class. Can be strict, but also very cool at times. Truly cares about his students, overall great guy and though tough, great teacher.

Mr. Dowling is an exceptional teacher. had him for Chemistry Reg my soph year. He is very smart, knows his stuff and can teach it to you. He cares about his students. I had trouble in Algebra II / Trig H and I went to him, even though he was not my teacher. He was more than willing to help me. As a senior, I continue to have a relationship with him. I thank him for being one of the top 3 teachers I have had during my years at BC High.

Superb teacher. Quite possibly the one of the best teachers at BC High. His teaching ability and grasp of whatever subject he teaches is so terribly high that he only refers to the textbook when he doesn't feel like making up questions,and that only rarely happens. Creates a fun class environment. Is able to relate ANYTHING taught in his class to a real-life situation. If you pay attention in his class, you're very likely to score better on the midterm/final than kids in other classes. I.C.C.
