This math class was such a headache. Make sure to pay attention in class and try to keep up with what is going on. You need to work really hard and deal with her attitude.

I don't doubt that Ms. Weiss is knowledgeable, however, she simply fails when it comes to sharing this knowledge with her students. Not only did her lack of teaching frustrate me, but I was not given the right materials (homework/classwork) to teach myself the lesson. When I approached her about this, I did get a kind response, however, no adjustments were made in effort to help me do better in the class. Unless you were a teacher's pet being successful would be difficult.

She does NOT prepare you properly for the AP and because of it I got a 2. I am very mad at this establishment and the AP Biology program at our school because I was neglected. I used to draw pictures of this other boy during class, but I highly doubt that had to do with my C's and 2. This class ruined me and this teacher is the reason why. Avoid her.

Ms Weiss can't even keep to her word and meet her own deadlines. But she holds us to. Morale sucks and she hazes students. Should have retired long ago. Why would anyone from Northwestern have to teach at Beverly? Oh I know, it's the only place you can get away with not teaching and calling yourself a teacher. Teaching to the AP but learning little and belittling us is unprofessional. She only has the class because she is lifelong friends with the Principal. Sad and deplorable.

you won't like her at first and vice versa. as time goes, she'll start to grow on you guys and the general relationships will grow. with this said, at any point she can still be very strict and out of line. her class is not easy if you have her for an AP class. even though she sorta messed up my GPA, i like her. she's sorta nice and pretty damn funny.

AP Bio. The class wasn't that hard, it's just lots of reading. If you manage your time and don't procrastinate you'll be fine. It's a lot of material, but she prepares you really well for the AP.

Her AP Bio class is very hard. The AP exam is much easier than her tests. Don't feel bad if you get a C or D in AP Bio but a 4 or perfect 5 on the AP, that is what most people get.

She's really a nice person if you think about it. She teaches really well too, so you will benefit. No need to worry about her bad rep.~ she's really nice as long as you try/ask questions and show that you really care. She likes people who care about school, and try hard...you can tell that she is really genuine. She gets interrupted during class a lot by other teachers.Everyone seems to love her

She is not as bad as a teacher as everyone thinks. She loses her temper sometimes but she does care about her students. Her classes are difficult but you'll get through it. I had her for Honors Bio and Ap Bio and I have gotten A's all semesters so far. Work hard and stay on her good side and she's not that bad. Some people hate her, but she really isn't that horrible.
