When I didn't get in his class, I went to talk to him after school to understand why. He just told me that I wasn't good enough and told me to leave. Still remember how terrible and worthless I felt.
Bummer that he retired. He was one of the best teachers and was always willing to help out.
I LOVE HIM :) he's freakin awesome and i hope i get him next year for comparative. mandarin basically puts me in a bad mood every second period, but going to Mr. O's class 3rd period TOTALLY brightens my day. or lets me relax
Great teacher. I can't believe his lectures and ridiculously simple projects actually helped me on the aps. Knows what he's talking about.
Dr.O is the best!!! had him for 2 years and jUSS LOVED HIS CLASS! super nice and funny~ wished he taught college...=p prepares the class well for APUSH and AP COMparative~
He is a great teacher. I got a 5 on the AP exam in comparative govt and pol. His class is fun and informative.
The thing about Dr. O is that as long as you pay attention in class, you're fine. For instance, AP US was a breeze because he covered all the main points in class with clarity.
cool guy. boring lectures. very funny personality. lots of videos. straightforward tests but impossible final.
Dr. O is pretty laid back but don't get me wrong. He gets things done. He has a funny sense of humor and I like those games he plays before a test arrives. He's awesome.
hes a good teacher i guess but i hate how he puts u on the spot and calls on random people
hes funny but doesn't prepare you well...hes a cool teacher tho. o my gosh lots of videos..
ONE OF THE BEST! Dr O's humor is great. Had him for both APUSH and AP Comp Gov/Econ. Like with all AP classes, just stay on top of material. Not hard at all.
read. make sure you read. doesn't prepare you enough for ap. esp doesn't prepare you for dbq. his tests are hard, but very possible to get an a in class. read!
Had him years ago. Learned a lot but it seemed like we did most of the work (mock trials etc.) Didn't really help us to get ready on the A.P.
a great teacher and hes realli nice! buh his mutiple choice tests and quizzes are SO hard!
currently a phd history student at stanford-awesome teacher...AP US history,archaeology-also TA'd the latter...he encouraged critical and independent thinking.
lots of lectures but very funny person. ditch contemporary n takes his comp gov class! his ap history lags behind gordons tho lol
Onderdonk is so awesome! Hilarious guy..starfish impression and blowing darts...LOL
One of the best teachers AHS has to offer. I took his class 5 years ago and loved it. Helped me develop a love for history!
He is so awesome! Sometimes his lectures are long-winded, but he's definitely the best AP Social Science teacher around. Take his class, you won't regret it!
this guys class may have a lot of lectures but its actually pretty fun. Nice guy
Dr. O is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He's really funny, cool, and really makes you intersted in learning. He'll also tell you random history facts.
awesome guy; probably hardest out of AP u.s history teachers though
Good lectures, nice guy. Ask him to do the starfish impression!
Very Very good at teacher. Clear and Concise. Fun Fun Fun!! Games were fun too!
he's good at the guitar! haha... but i think he hates me, i BS too much
dr. o is so funny. and he knows soooo much. he's awesome.
Doc O is always on the student's side. Great, funny, interesting, etc.
