This is an easy question to answer. Our son started high school (grade 7) last year at LCC. He and 5 fellow Priory graduates started Gr. 7 by attending a 3-day sleep away camp (before the first week of school) so that all the students starting Gr. 7 could meet. Each student was placed in a cabin with 3 other students that they didn't previously know. I was there when all the campers were boarding the bus to start the trip. You could pick out the Priory graduates because they were so excited to embark on the trip. They had had years of overnight and multiple day trips away starting in an early grade. Their maturity, sense of confidence and enthusiasm were all the result of their Priory years. Regarding the academics, we knew the first term of Gr. 7 and now Gr. 8, that the Priory not only prepared our son well academically for LCC, they excelled at doing so. I'm trying to think of what we may have been disappointed in academically but I'm not coming up with any negatives. The Priory is known for having its Gr. 6 students being almost unanimously accepted at their first choice of high schools. Our son was accepted at all 3 of his choices. Although the teachers at the Priory work with their classes as whole, they also take the time to work with the individual students and any challenges they may be having.
The Priory School prepared my daughter for one of the most demanding high schools in the city. She was able to pass the admission exam after being well prepared in Grade 6 and is now capable of keeping up with the work and challenges of her new school. Through out her years at The Priory she progressively learnt more complex subjects and concepts. The teachers, through out all grades, helped her develop good study habits.
