While I believe he knows the topic well, he isn't very responsible as he takes awhile to put in grades and forgets to tell students when the retakes are. If you need to retake a quiz, make sure to ask him yourself.

AP ECON- Never is prepared for class. Reads off of powerpoints. Has no idea what he's talking about. Shows clear favoritism to "popular" girls. Not a fair grader. Constantly makes mistakes. Would not recommend.

I think Mr.Hays never really teaches anything in class. The test is pretty hard and do not have a strong connection with what he teaches in class. I do not recommend taking his AP ECON class because in his class I learned so little. When I was preparing for the AP exam in May, I found out that the review books teaches better than him...Plus his tests are hard

Lazy teacher. Seems unprepared like he is making it up as he goes. Not sure he understands the material. Cares more about coaching track instead of teaching.

I loved AP Econ. I'm not sure how you can say he is ignorant, maybe you should look in the mirror. His tests were exactly like the stuff he gave in class. Sounds like you attended a different class than I did. I will agree that he is strict but that doesn't mean he is mean. All I know is I got a 5 on both exams and I have Mr. Hays to thank. What did you get on the AP Exam?

Not a good teacher. Had him this last year for AP econ and just talks to his favorite students the whole class. On top of that his tests don't line up with the notes he gave us. He is incredibly rude and ignorant. He yells at students, says something sarcastic when they ask a question. I heard a student ask him what is on a test and he says "Macro economics". Seriously?... This guy can't teach, and I have heard things from people on track about how mean he is. Curses, throws clip board on ground

I don't know why Mr. Hays has some harsh ratings on here!! I think he is an amazing teacher for geometry and always knows what he's talking about. He is very fun and easy going. He always keeps his students on task while at the same time having fun. He makes sure everyone understands what we learn before a test and gives tons of review. He is also extremely nice and a great person.

Hays is not a great teacher. He is an amazing coach, though. He teaches straight from the book and uses only book material. Good for seniors, not for juniors. Also appears to give females leniency
