This man is an incredible lecturer; informative, clear, concise. His class is very hard. You will have to spend a lot of time studying and (maybe) being sad over sub-usual grades. It'll be worth it. You will have an amazing understanding of physics. I am two days into physics C and I'm hoping to not get destroyed, however, I know I'll learn a lot of interesting physics even if I do. Being prepared for the AP is a given if you take Sckalor.

Physics 1: Infamous for destroying GPA, this man remains one of the funniest and helpful teachers in the school. You have to be EXTREMELY careful on exams because a single mistake could change your letter grade. No matter, this is the only class that I don't sleep in. Make sure that you watch a ton of movies to get his random references in class. I hear people get destroyed in Physics C, so choose wisely senior year.

Mr. Sckalor is the best!!! While the class itself is very hard, he tries his best to help you if you need it. He is also very funny and he knows how to make a boring class fun.

just take the class. you will not regret it. despite nearly failing the class, i enjoyed every single bit of it. everyday is a different and exciting day. not one day did i felt bored. i dont think ill ever have a class where it destroys my gpa but makes me feel happy. this class has, although made me pull many all nighters, given me a new perspective in everything i do. it's so worthwhile to take the class because you'll probably have a teacher, like sckalor, once in a life time.

He makes AP Physics B as interesting as it can be. I believe he does everything in his power to help his students succeed in a relatively demanding course. He's also very kind, but I do not believe that he realizes how certain things he says may be considered offensive/rude to specific students. Regardless of this belief, I have never had a science teacher in high school as helpful as Mr. Sckalor. His class is very demanding, but he provides all the tools necessary to be a successful student.

Awesome teacher. He put you in the situation where you basically determined your grades by putting your time into it. He did not baby us but rather gave us the choice to do well or not. He was chill, fun and relaxed and i really enjoyed taking this course!

physics is tough no matter what, and sckalor makes it interesting and runs a fun class. If you need help though, he's almost never around and chill class takes up time. if you struggle, try Wells.

Sckalor is a good teacher. He is one of the few that still cares and if you stick with it and go to extra help you will do fine in his class.
