People here complain about everything, but she was a good AP chem teacher. The homework was very manageable, and if you tried on it and studied, you could reliably get A's on exams. AP is called AP for a reason, so it'll be harder than Honors.
I get that you have to learn stuff yourself, but this is college level. Nobody will spoon-feed you anymore, and this WILL prepare you for college.
Ms. Bunch will prepare you well for the AP exams. However, you will have to prepareoutside of class.

Took her AP Chem class. Coming from Smay Honors Chem, I was already extremely prepared for the class. If you had Tran, I'm sorry. Nevertheless because of this, I was able to focus on the more harder concepts, which were meshed with the easier ones, giving me an easy time in the class. Sometimes forgets to teach so some Googling is required. Great teacher, great enthusiasm, a little lacking on the organization side, but aside from that, one of the best teachers at Uni.

Gets really excited and happy when she teaches a lesson which makes it fun. Tests can sometimes be hard but she is very generous with partial credit so it is hard to get a bad grade. very little homework if any. very nice, easy to talk to, understanding, and all around great teacher.

Ms. Bunch is definitely a smart person. Her main problem is that she is disorganized and thus cannot explain many concepts throughly. I love her as a person but it is apparent that her teaching methods are not up to par with the standards of the AP Chemistry. For reference sake, i know that many angry students post ratings, but I got an A first semester and a B second semester, thus i would like to think i am a fair rater of this teacher

You actually have to work and learn stuff. that is either good or bad. It is bad for lazy people like me. but I love Mrs Bunch despite the fact that I have gotten pretty sucky grades...she is awesome and helpful. Honestly this was the hardest AP class for me. Everybody got B's/C's. But it's not about the grades...school is about learning. lol jk what am I saying. I'm a Uni student all I give a crap about is grades and following the commands of my asian parents and getting into harvard.

The AP Chemistry class is extremely difficult and challenging. Most will say that only the top 10~20% of students will receive higher than an 90(A-) in her class which amounts to about 5/6 A's per class. There is a large bulk of B+'s. The tests are challenging and will test your logical abilities to the limit. If you take time to ask her specific questions, she is very helpful.Try not to cause too much stress for her because she has a lot on her plate! Overall a difficult, but rewarding teacher.

Ms. Bunch is energetic and tries to understand her students. However, she is not a dedicated teacher. She does not try to get work back to students quickly and does not do everything to help her students. She won't even let students see old tests because she's "stressed out". Not a difficult class,

Not helpful. Relies heavily on handouts. When asked for help, tells student to read handout. Does not put up all homework answers and never has time after school or during lunch to help. Tests out of small number of points, like 25 and are scaled up. Easy to miss 1-2 multiple choice and get a B, sca

She is super nice, but she is a very, very difficult teacher. Her class is one of the most difficult I have taken at Uni. She is an excelent teacher if you learn quickly and are naturally good at chemistry but if it does not come easy for you, the class will be a wild ride. She is perfect for her AP

I had her for H. Chem and AP Chem. She has high standards for labs and covers lots of material quickly. You will have to earn that A, but a B is fairly easy. She is very kind, and is, indeed, one of the more popular teachers on campus. I am continuing in the sciences because of her. Take her!

She's lazy and doesn't teach well. Her kindness ends up screwing you since you don't want to yell at her. If I had an A I wouldn't be complaining but you know how it is. If you are CP switch out of her class, only AP can comprehend and deal with her crap. She works on a point system no late hw.

She's an extremely nice teacher, and I really like her as a person. In terms of teaching, however, she's very unorganized and seems frazzled all the time with all the stuff she has to grade. The way she teaches is sort of entertaining at times, but there are many times when she gets off subject.
