Woodside Priory School Reviews

I wouldn't have wanted any other high school experience than what Priory afforded me. I will forever hold a lifelong connection to the school because of how it has shaped me into a young adult. I am confident, I have learned the value of failure and the spirit of exploring all aspects of my interest without fear. At Priory I could be in a play, run a club, play three sports a year all while having balance outside of school. Few places can you do that and yet balance should be engrained in every schooling environment. I recommend Priory not primarily with the intention that you should attend just with the motive of attending an "elite" college (you can) but they instilled in me an ability to self-reflect, build my spirituality and to have a strong grounding of morals and ethics that have become part of the values I wish for live with. For that reason and the lifelong community Priory creates the Priory experience is truly one-of-a-kind.

Priory is a special place. The teachers aren't just knowledgable but incredibly accessible. Despite its small size, the student body has good amount of diversity and every student brings a unique perspective. I have particularly fond memories in science, math, english, and history classes. The curriculum is challenging but the teachers are there to support you along the way. Outside the classroom, I developed life long friendships with peers and coaches on the cross country team. Overall, I had a fantastic experience and feel grateful to have attended this school.
The Priory goal is to provide an environment that allows students to grow and succeed, and that they do well. The Priory was a wonderful school for both my children. The teachers always made themselves available after school to go over any concerns they had. My daughter’s math teacher gave her home phone number to her students to call before 10pm and not fret over a math problem. My son was very involved in Priory sports so made good use of meeting with teachers after school and before practice started. They both graduated with a confidence and study ethic that made us proud, and they were more than prepared for College life. We will be forever grateful to the faculty and staff at Woodside Priory.
