I graduated from HGHS 6 years ago, have graduated from college as well, and still Dr. Prignano in all my years of schooling is my favorite teacher. I cannot say enough nice things about him. He gave me the confidence I needed to succeed and was always there to answer any question I ever had. They said AP Chemistry would be the hardest class I ever took, and it was, but Dr. Prignano was also able to make it my favorite. Taking his class was the turning point in my academic career.

It's both an honor and pleasure to be in Mr. Prignano's class. He is extremely clear at communicating information and organizing lessons, making difficult topics relatively easy. His exams are fair as long as you study. Furthermore, he is the most funny teacher I've ever had.

I'm usually not that excited to go to school, but once I get into Prignano's room, I always start to weep for our nation because I know how many kids miss out by not having him. My favorite greetings from him are,
"Siiiiiiit doooown!!" "I WAS SO WORRIED" "GIVE IT UP"
If your the average student who loves to ask obvious questions, be prepared for one of many of Prig's responses,
"Uhhhhh, Yaaaaa" "No! I will not go to prom with you" "NO, you wait!"
And never forget, "Oh, there was a back?!"

Dr. P is an amazing teacher. He's willing to stay after school for hours with any student who has questions for him or is struggling in his class. There seems to be no question he doesn't have an answer for, and he goes to great lengths to make sure his students reach their potential.

Dr. Prignano is one of the best teachers I have ever had... I had him for two years (Chem A and AP Chem) and it was one of my saddest experiences of high school when his class finished. If you have him you're insanely lucky, he's super funny and a great teacher (which is a really hard combination to find). Just a great teacher and person.

Funniest teacher in the school. Tends to mock the regents and biology....but he's a great teacher. He makes learning chemistry so easy and fun. You're so lucky if you have him Things Prig Says... "That's offensive." "I got a 9.0 in biology" "I'm making a documentary called 4.0 Loko" "You don't have me tomorrow so I suggest you just take the day off" "What would Hammurabi do?"
