He's a very intelligent man. His knowledge of the subjects he teaches is superior to anyone else. This bring said, the dude is a ball bag. He demands perfection and will screw you if you don't give it to him.

Mr. Guardino teaches some of the hardest classes on campus, and I respect him for that. He really tries hard to engage his students in learning material. But he also is the most dramatic teacher I have ever had. If you raise your hand to ask a question while he is speaking, he'll get offended. If you ask him to clarify something, he gets offended. One time, he made a typo on a test, and when he told us the typo, the class sighed/laughed in relief. He took it as an insult. Good teacher, but drama

Mr. Guardino is not a super warm-and-fuzzy kind of teacher, but he is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent. Although he may seem a little tense, he is a very good teacher with many years of experience.

Michael Guardino is by far the best teacher I have ever had the honor of working with at Carmel High School. Those who have insulted in behind the mask of anonymity, using poor grammar, making sweeping generalizations were not ready for the class.

I had Mr. Guardino twice in my high school career and he coached me in wrestling. This was many years ago. I want to say that he is the best teacher I ever had. He is exactly what our country needs. Nobody takes more pride in his job.

Mr. Guardino definitely knows everything there is to know about physics and is a good teacher. I respect him for that. However, the fact that he grades every single homework assignment like a test makes the class extremely difficult. You have to have the perfect answers in order to get full credit. I see many of his teaching methods unnecessary but I think he really could be a great teacher if he wouldn't grade so harshly and have some sympathy for his students.

Great teacher, but plays favorites. He decides who he likes in the first two weeks of school. He prefers girls and baseball players. If he likes you then you're set for the rest of the year, but if he doesn't then you have to work extremely hard. He also demands respect from his students. He will get angry if you try to interject him or when explaining your actions. He views it as an attack on his authority. If someone raises their hand when he is talking he acts as if it interrupts the class.

He is a great teacher and even though he is a difficult grader he is probably the best teacher i have ever had when it comes to the amount of information he is able to teach in the hour and fifteen minutes that we have for class.

He was the most devoted teacher I had at CHS; he expects devotion from students. Learned more from him about Physics, AP Chem, and Marine Research than I did from a BS and a Master's @ UCSD. No Joke.
