i had him for world history... i'm horrible at history bc i have memory issues and he made an example out of me. if he wanted to scare people about studying he would call on me and two other kids all in a row. he was terrifying. he also humiliated me in front of the class bc my mom brought my work to school when i had pneumonia. tests are hell.
he's really cool if you're a "normal" student. he taught us about basic philosophy (love me some plato) and was pretty fun when he wasn't lecturing.
Frip is one of the few amazing teachers at Miramonte. He is very knowledgable and extremely personable. Loves a good debate, I would recommend strong participation in all of his classes. His tests are extremely difficult, but often are curved well and not a huge portion of your grade. It should not be too hard to get a least a B, and if you work a little extra, an A is feasible. Definitely find a way to take one of his classes.
The best teacher on campus. Euro is fantastic. He actually knows what he's talking about and is incredibly knowledgeable. Gonna miss him next year.
best teacher at the school, is hella chill but really hard. 8/8 recommend to all, his tests are pretty hard.
Probably one of the few genuinely amazing teachers at Miramonte. Tough but so worth having him.
I had Mr. Frippiat for AP Comparative Government. The class was incredibly challenging but was incredibly interesting as Mr. Frippiat was dilated on the topics with very interesting and pragmatic information. Though initially intimidating, Frippiat is easily one of the most entertaining and knowledgeable teachers at Miramonte. The wild gesticulation of his arms followed by the rapid delivery of interesting information keeps the class amusing and fascinating.
he was a hard teacher, but a good guy... helped me when i didnt understand what was going on, even though i think he hated me with a passion. once he saw that i was trying though, he really helped me, and once he saw that i cared about my grade, i went from an F to a C+ in less than a 1/4 of the year... great guy, fully think that you should try to get him if you can.
Challenging but infinatly rewarding. He pushes you hard but you learn the material and improve your writing and reasoning skills
Mr Frippiat is a really nice guy, however his class is very challenging. The best grade I've gotten on all his tests is a c -...
Great teacher. To be honest, his class is difficult. you could say very. But, he is going to teach you what you need to learn. And he manages to teach history in a dynamic, interesting way. Frip was awesome!
I think he might be a genius and he is slightly terrifying
sorry, I accidentally put that his class was easy. It's not. Freaking difficult
The unhappy reviewers were likely the ones that didn't study hard for his tests, and were rewarded with egregious test scores. Frip's class is the one class where I have to study hard before the tests, but it pays off. He's tough, uses high density words,somewhat dramatic, and smart as hell. You'll be lucky to get him.
Great if you are in for college and willing to spend 5 hours a night reading and writing for your 9th grade world history class. He teaches this class like he is a college professor, not realizing that the majority of the class consists of 14 year olds. I guess he is just a frustrated HS teacher wishing he was teaching in a college. Frip was a discriminatory and demeaning man; so full of himself. Glad I am out of that school...and got out of that class alive.
Okay, he's not easy but he was by far one of the best teachers I had at Miramonte. AP Euro and World History would not have been the same with out Xavier Frip. He's the man.
Be prepared for one of the most challenging (and rewarding) class of your life. You will laugh, cry, and probably bleed a bit, but If you stay on task, keep up with the reading, and pay attention to m
he's pretty good. actually not that hard. def chill. and HELZA GOOD LOOKIN
an amazing teacher! you hate him during the school year for all of the work he makes you do, but in retrospect, he's one of the best teachers I've ever had. You're lucky if you get him.
honestly not that great... the only good thing about the class was being able to look at him
HE IS SO AMAZING WITH GRADES. oh and btw he has very progressive political views so voice them and you'll get an A
Very helpful, nice guy, and politically astute/wise. You are lucky if you get this frackin awesome guy. VERY OPEN about grades too. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not as good as my hist teacher last year, but Xavier is a smart BEASTTTT
Pulls a lot of d-bag moves. Be careful. Keep up with reading--ton of hella easy but unexpected pop quizzes. Watch yourself in Econ.
He's a really cool teacher, intelligent, and well informed. His class is pretty difficult but you learn a lot. He is also very diplomatic in his style of teaching.
His class is the hardest I've ever taken and he's impossible to talk to about grades. However, I've never learned more in a class and I've gotten a lot of writing and studying skills out of it.
Frip's hella tight...it's a tough class though. Make sure you just keep up with the reading and you should do fine.
Frippiat is amazing. He is a really interesting person and very smart, one of the best teachers at Miramonte. It is a difficult class, but if you have what it takes it is worth every minute.
He gives sudden bursts of home work sometimes, but if you need help, he is always there at lunch. Go in at lunch for tips on essays.
Fripppiat is the best teacher that i have ever had. He taught me how to actually write an essay and prepared me really well for the AP. He is probably the smartest teacher at Miramonte
best teacher ever. one of the most interesting people youll ever meet and also incrediblly knowledgable. changed my life. however he will not tolerate whinny little kids and parents...grow up.
Pretty good teacher. Incredibly hard but definitely worth it in the long run
Frip is an amazing teacher&person. He's a great teacher. The work can feel like alot during the year but when looking back on it, World History with him was my favorite clas I've ever taken.
Super awsome teacher he is just plan awsome he is what a teacher should be he is funny nice but at the same time helped me alot
Fripp is the best history teacher I've ever had... and the hardest. SO engaging, and he really relates history to today. He'll give you guidance, but you have to be willing to pull your own weight.
SWEET Teacher hes nice and hard core. Best history teacher because he makes it fun and instead of projects had HW.
Awsome teacher!! Very fun and interesting class. Hardest World History teacher i believe and not to organized but you learn alot and hes chill to talk to
i dont like him as a person, but hes a really good teacher! hes hard but fair. if you talk to him about your grade, he'll help you
hardest class i've ever taken. NO SLIDING. fripp is chill though. he's incredibly hard to understand though, with his vocabulary up and above the average human being.
This teacher refused to communicate with the student and parent. After humiliated students, the administration took action. He was unreasonable.
he's a very awesome teacher but... he is extremely hard espcially on his tests. THEY ARE HARDCORE!
Awesome guy! Frip's the man, even though his class is hard. He'll hook up some points if you go talk to him about your grade. He doesnt really care about grades
Frippiat is an awesome guy, and has some neat ways of looking at history and the government.
I had him the first year that he taught and i thought he was an excellent teacher. that doesn't mean he was easy, but i learned a lot and had a lot of fun.
doesn't seem like he's made for teaching. just does it and gets away with it and then goes home and is happy. fine by me. ya gotta do whatcha gotta do.
A really nice guy- kind of weird at times, but really tries to help his students.
do your stuff, you'll be fine. he's open and can talk about your stuff and how to get more points. cool teacher if you don't mind the strange stuff.
