School Reviews

1 year ago
Priory is a great college prep. school that focuses on academics. They have a good music program; students can participate in choir, band, or orchestra. It is not easy to play sports while going to this school, though. The chances of having to participate in a Pac5 sport program is high, too, so making practices is hard. They rarely give out awards. The education is good, though.
