Mr. Upton was an all star teacher that taught me more about chemistry than I thought possible. My expectations for chemistry were that I thought I would hate it, but after having Mr. Upton now I dream to be a chemist when I graduate.

I absolutely love Mr. Upton! I was not good at math so when I found out that chemistry was going to have a a lot of calculations in it i was so unhappy. But Mr. Upton was a super fun teacher who knew how to teach the class well! I actually ended up doing well in his class and I understood most of the material we learned! Thanks Mr. Upton you rock!

AP chemistry is a hard class, and he helps you in anyway he can. He knows chemistry and is one of the nicest teachers at CHS. He does not have a mean bone in his body. But is a great teacher.

I found AP Chemistry particularly difficult, but he was very helpful and always willing to answer questions with as much explanation as needed. Plus he was entertaining and a great teacher.

Ok chem is hard period. He is a great teacher he can shrink an all day lecture into 20 mins usually, unlike Kendall who teaches the whole hour. Get time to work on homework and ask him ?'s. Stays after school to help on tests. Plus he burns, explodes what ever you tell him to do.

Upton is a chemistry teacher from heaven. The lectures can be somewhat boring, but they are short. He explains things thoroughly and answers questions to the best of his ability. Labs are funfunFUN, and the first three or so days of class he made things blow up or burn :) Mole Day was a blast too... Makes you love chemistry through the ions and anions xP

Chem is a tough subject. Most of it is stuff you have never heard before in your life. For all chs chem classes, the notes they give are made by the teacher but the multiple choice tests are from the book. But Upton is a really nice guy. Very down to earth. He will always help you out. He has a lot of patience if you don't understand something. He doesn't really care if you turn in homework late as long as its not too late and he checks for effort not accuracy & he always seems willing to blow something up.

My child has Mr.Upton for Chemistry this semester and I am extremely disappointed in his teaching. I left three voice messages for him regarding my child and he never returned my phone calls.

Uptizzle is awesome. He's a very good teacher and knows A LOT about what he teaches. He'll often go farther than the scope of the class to talk about interesting science stuff.
