"Prior Park is a positive, caring environment, in beautiful surroundings, which has made my child happy and ready to learn."
A Prior Parent
"The teachers really want us to improve every skill so we can perform to the best of our ability. 
You learn to be independent and you develop as a person."

The House staff and other boarders feel like family. Prior is, for sure, a home to me."
