Mr. Scott is an amazing teacher and you should be happy to have him. He's always really clear about explaining stuff in class and is really knowledgable about chemistry. His tests are very clear and will be on exactly what you learned in class-- He even makes study guides! He's also really helpful outside of class and has an amazing southern accent that will enlighten you about hwat he teaches and hwy certain stuff in chemistry is how it is.

Mr. Scott is a super chill old dude who cares about chemistry and about his students. He's kinda funny and sometimes pronounces names wrong but he teaches very well and makes chemistry really simple to understand. He's really open to meet outside of class and if you decide to take the sat 2 he can help you if you want.

mr scott is so sweet and nice and really wants every student to succeed. his tests are super easy as long as you study a little bit, and pretty fair grader with labs. he is pretty strict and won't be lenient about stuff like latenesses or not doing homework, but he always tries to make himself available to help you and is super nice. definitely the best teacher for 10th grade chem

he's super nice but his tests are uber specific about random examples that we reviewed maybe once in class. also he's weirdly harsh about lab grades -- he gave me a C+ once because he couldn't read my handwriting. i study a lot for his tests but can't seem to do better than an A-. maybe it's my own problem, but i feel like he relies so much on the textbook that it gets a little ridiculous. he's obviously smart but he just takes lessons straight from the textbook.

Mr. Scott is so knowledgable and he cares so much about how well you do. He's one of my favorite teachers. My only complaint is that he teaches us like we're much younger and for a 10th grade chem class that starts to get a little bit annoying. However, he definitely wants us to do well so he moves at a pace that is understandable for everyone in the class, not just the people that already know things. He's absolutely adorable and super sweet -- if you get him, you're lucky!

My favorite eighth grader teacher! Mr. Scott always makes sure that his students understand the material and will reexplain his lesson is necessary. It is impossible for anyone who puts even a teensy bit of effort into the class to receive below a B. He is extremely nice and polite, and his "back when I was a kid in the mountains of Virginia" stories always make me smile.

Mr Scott is a really nice teacher and knows the topics well. He's always willing to help individual students or a group with anything we don't understand. He provides great test review sheets.

I'll have to say Mr. Scott DOES treat us as if we were...somewhat..younger. But seriously, he's so sweet inside and he'll always offer you help if you need it. In my opinion, he's HILARIOUS, but doesn't know it. Sometimes people start giggling in his class and he just looks at us in a confused way.

Mr. Scott is great. And I'm not saying that because I get good grades in his class (because I get bad grades). He's so kind and he really is a kid at heart. He loves teaching and science and it's great to see. He also wants to help people do well-- he will meet with you after or before school if he thinks there's a chance you'll need help on a test, which is really nice of him. He gives great review sheets too.

A note for all of Scott's 10th grade students who want to take AP chem: getting an A+ in the class does not at all mean you are prepared to take AP chem. Great teacher otherwise, though.

VERY easy teacher. his tests are straightforward and doesn't ask you about anything that he only mentioned once in class. mostly his classes are boring but he does really cool stuff time to time.

He's an awesome teacher, and even though he's a clean-freak, at least that's better than being a slob. Pretty easy to get good grades, as long as you pay attention in class.

You might only appreciate him after you have him as a teacher, but he's so in love with science and just wants to impart that same love onto everyone. He's a little weird only because he's kind of like a kid in an old' guy's body, but his intentions are pure, really. I also love how he remembers everyone's names years later.
