it's amazing how he knows all these little details about each historical figure. it's like he was there with them. walking into his class was literally sitting down while he read history out of storybook. his tests were pretty easy, and the hardest parts would be the ODAs. unfortunately, he's leaving after this semester...and you future students can only hear of his greaty legacy and awesome personality.

Mr. Granucci has to be, without a doubt, the best teacher in Lowell right now. His 30+ years experience with Lowell and the entire AP program makes him the must-have for AP Euro students. He holds insider info on the AP board and how to succeed in its tests. Parts of his test are taken directly from the AP exams. His homework load is very heavy but rewarding. Lectures include personal lives of prominent figures that are hilarious. He told me about his career: "Good things come to an end"...

Granucci is an awesome teacher. The lectures are humorous/interesting, but that's all the class is about. Lecture, all year. And sometimes that gets boring. He tends to get off topic sometimes if you lead him that way. But he's a very nice man and would be very willing to help you along the course. But he goes at a leisure pace and although it's get to have sometimes, if you're taking AP Euro, you don't get 1/5 of the material you need. Take him for the first semester and someone else the next.
