    "A committed, deeply spirited yet deeply spiritual middle and high school. The kindness of faculty and staff as well as students is unbelievable and extremely evident, and the commitment of students to academics is what you would expect from a school in the Silicon Valley. There can be a lot of pressure and some students may slack while other push themselves too hard to have perfect grades, but Priory does it's best to keep students from overloading or not putting in any effort. Overall a truly outstanding school."

    "I have never felt unsafe at Priory, many people are friendly, and the faculty is just the best people I could ever ask for. However, there are some significant things that students can improve as a whole. Like I said earlier, many are open-minded and friendly, but at the same time, a significant part of the student body may be judgemental and biased towards certain ethnicities. Especially for my grade, the students are separated into smaller groups, and it is not very easy for us to make close friends among different groups of people."

    "Faculty at Priory is one of the biggest reasons I love school. It changed my perspective on education in general and appreciate opportunities given to think and to broaden perspectives. I would not be as passionate and open-minded as I am right now if I were not a part of Priory community."

    "Genuinely the best. You will constantly hear students complaining about how they had to stay up until 5 in the morning to finish their homework. Let me tell you a thing: That is their fault. I personally constantly stayed up late and got little sleep at 99.9% of the time it was my fault. If I had started my homework right after school and not gone out with friends until late or checked my computer and phone every minute and watched Netflix for hours straight I would have gotten my homework done in a timely manner. I procrastinated though as many students do. When you hear those students whining about how they didn't get sleep, do not get scared that Priory is an impossible school. Yes, it is hard and yes, it will challenge you. There is absolutely NO need though, to stay up until all hours of the night. That is on the students for being lazy and getting distracted. And it happens. But Priory is not impossible. The 0.01% of the time I really did have too much on my plate and could work for hours and not get it done, I emailed my teachers and let them know the situation and I was granted an extension or somehow given help. Priory is not an easy school and the academics prepare you so extensively for college so once you get there college classes will be a breeze, but it will not kill you. Being in college now, I was so beyond and still am beyond most of my classmates. Priory's academics are amazing."

    "It's difficult to sum up my Priory experience in a text box on this website. Only my graduating class knows what we went through. It was not always easy. Still, I wouldn't change the fact that I attended this school. The pros outweigh the cons. The friends you make are either amazing or terrible, but the amazing ones make it worth it. The administration doesn't do everything they can to make the experience better, so I cannot commend them on that, but the students make what we can of it. I have amazing memories both on campus and off campus with my friends that I wouldn't trade for an overall five star high school experience. I wish some things were different, and I wish the administration cared more about the opinions of the students, but I can't complain about the good it brought me."
