    We can't recommend Priory enough. Though early into his tenure, we'd like to share our thoughts with you as our son is currently a new 7th grader. We were interested in a school that would challenge and bring out the best in our son (he previously attended a challenging Catholic school). The curriculum is rigorous, and our son greatly enjoys all of his classes and teachers. It has been a bit bumpy here and there with grades, but this was expected. Teachers are all available when extra help is needed, but your son must reach out to them and make the time. Is there a fair amount of homework? Yes, but it seems to be pretty evenly balanced across the subjects. Our son is very active in sports, so we've been careful to balance his activities, letting him get accustomed to the new setting and priorities.

    I actually am connected to Priory through thier summer academic achievement program Aim High. Aim High has been around since 1991, and it has help me evolve academically from middle school to high school. The program offered mentors, TAs, and electives after classes so that everyone felt welcomed and thrilled for the day ahead.
    It has incredible academic quality and will prepare you for college extremely well. Most of the teachers are very good. A large minority of teachers are incredible. But a few of the teachers are pretty bad. I think you're going to find that at any school, so don't let that discourage you from coming. The community aspect of Priory is great. You really form a bond with all of your classmates. The only thing that's really bad is the diversity. There is none. A lot of that has to do with where it is located but even still it is pretty bad.
