To me, this man was far more than just a teacher. He was a hero, a role model. A father. If you are lucky enough to be taught by this transcendent figure, consider yourself blessed. He will change your life in ways I never thought imaginable.

Mr.Symons is one of the greatest teachers I’ve ever met in all 15 years of my life. He is a role model— my father left when I was a baby, but with him, I had a true father connection. He makes sure everyone understands the lesson, making jokes and having fun. Personally, I loved his hw F joke, when he wrote do homework EFF. His tests prepared us so well for the actual APW final, and I feel like I’m actually useful in the class (even thought my parent said I’m useless). Be happy you have Symons.

Stuart Symons is the greatest teacher I have ever had in my entire life. Never have I encountered a teacher with a youthful rejuvenation like him. He makes me love the class like no one else could. In addition to this, he never has a day where he is not dressing like a model. He makes my mornings so much more interesting. I hope he reciprocates my adoration.

takes things way too seriously, gives basic and unhelpful notes that are useless for the actual AP, grades essays way too harshly and gives unreasonable explanations and tips. hes a nice- ISH dont get me wrong and his class is great but an all around bad teacher.

Mr. Symons is the absolute best! Two years in a row with him (APWH and APUSH) = complete blessing. He doesn't hold grudges, is really understanding to your point of view, and knows how to teach effectively to a classroom of high school students.

Starts the class with either a funny story, or an interesting historical fact. Although he does give a lot of homework, if you do well on them, then you will do well in the class. He seems like a friendly teacher, as he says hi when he passes by you in the hallways.

is this a class or a writing competition? because the moment you walk through to door until the bell rings, you're copying to board nonstop. this man never engages you in the discussion and makes the class very boring. he copies straight out of the textbook and his homework isn't very helpful, more like "busy work" to "simulate a college course" easy enough class, just boring as hell and an absolutely nightmare in the afternoon after lunch because you can never stay awake.

Although I only had Mr. Symons for most of the second term (Mr. Frankl left), I can say with complete confidence that he is an excellent US History teacher. If you pay attention in class, and take careful notes (in addition to doing your homework), it is fairly easy to ace his exams. Although the term project was fairly long, he was very fair in grading it. He only got visibly angry once in the term, during the last week when the A/C wasn't working and several people fell asleep. I wish I had him all year.
