Dr. Stern is a fleeting rarity these days. He's intelligent, understanding, and empathetic. Over my junior year at Stuyvesant, he was the one who I could always count on to make APUSH fun and exciting. He did not burden us with useless "busy work"; rather, he taught us what we needed to succeed. I got a 5 on the AP and everyone I know recieved either a 5 or a 4 (mostly 5s). It's truly sad that future Stuy kids won't get to experience this legend.
Dr. Stern is amazing. He's very chill but he's also very knowledgeable and prepares you well for fhe AP Exam.
I have him now and he is so chill, nice, funny, and everything good in this world. He lets us eat, he teachers history well unlike other teachers, gives little homework unless it's a practice essay which will help us in the long run and understands us as tired and exhausted students. He's one of the best teachers and truly an ideal history teacher. He's absolutely amazing and I love how he smiles at everyone so brightly as if he doesn't get paid close to nothing. Thank you Dr. Stern!
Currently have him, and I can say that he is absolutely one of the best history teachers I've had. He may not give out as much work as other APUSH teachers, but he is still very knowledgeable. He teaches crystal clear, and as long as you do the work, you're garunteed a high grade!
AP US History with Stern is a very nice class. It doesn't require much work (until two weeks before the AP), because his tests are curved ridiculously. Just don't fall asleep in class everyday and you'll get a high grade.
He is my favorite teacher in Stuy. If you take down the notes and pay attention to what he's saying youll be fine. You cant slack off but his tests are very fair. His lessons are amazing ! i love him.
I love the way he teaches. He's really clear and makes history really fun to learn. MY FAVORITE HISTORY TEACHER
this guy rocks. seriously, you actually learn in his class and there's not too much work. just remember to turn in all your stuff on time.
really easygoing, has very well organized and clear lessons and understands the Stuyvesant students' need for little or no homework
i dont even no the point in writing this, the first day u will realize that he is awesome. he has lots of experience so he knows what hes doing. he is light on work and gives extremely high grades.
AMAZING man. His class is really easy and VERY informative at the same time. He's retiring next year! I was so sad when I heard... I feel sorry for next years batch of US Hist kids.
what a great guy. he's is such a great teacher and very easy. one of my favorite stuy teachers
I had Dr. Stern four years ago (2004), in my senior year for AP US History. His class was awesome! Interesting and energetic guy, and his in-class exams - which are AP questions - got me a 5 on the AP
amazing teacher. essays like once a week but dont affect ur grade. however his tests are really hard. and everyone does really bad. but he curves it as follows. next comment
Has easiness down to a science, and makes this very clear. Interesting class, which was surprising considering it's mostly lecture mixed with discussion. Funny and nice guy.
amazing guy. he'll get paid more if he retires, but choses to teach, because he loves it. he's really caring. he's such a jolly, unmaterialistic, and moral person.
Amazing guy. He's hilarious, lets you eat in class, plus you learn a lot! Do all your homework on time, and you'll get at very pretty grade.
A paragon of everything good and true in the human race.
Very good, and very easy teacher. I don't know how well he's preparing us for the AP, but classes are certainly interesting. I've learned a lot of interesting stuff about American History already. I hope I get him again.
what an amazing guy! extremely laid back class, but you will learn if you pay attention. gives good notes and handouts, though not too extensive. if you do your work, you're guaranteed a good grade.
knowledgeable, classes not stressful, was a good hr teacher too
Omg Dr. Stern is awesome! I can't believe I don't have him this term =\
Great teacher. Unlike Sandler's class, you don't have to engage in political debates until you don't care whether or not Bush blows of the world.
The political remarks he drops in class are gratuitous. I would prefer him not to curve the grades so drastically, but to give tests on what we learn.
His tests are old AP questions and he knows a lot, so he prepares you well for the AP. It's a shame that he became dean part time this term. We miss you!
Very chill teacher, I enjoyed the class from what I can remember (it's been 3 years). Even learned some stuff too, I'd take his AP over the regular course.
One of the nicest teachers I've had. I really should start paying attention in class tho...
This guy rocks! He was the only teacher that ever made history seem interesting to me. His teaching is great and better than any history teacher i ever had
rumor to be the best ap us teacher in stuy. in my opinion, that's very true
this man is truly the best social studies teacher i ever had.even though he was the ONLY teach i ever had.he is truly exceptional...dad, do i get paid for this?
my favorite S.S. teacher at Stuy. enjoys the material and kind to students.
