I had him for one semester of Modern World and one for US History. (My last name kept me out for more semesters. Arena!) I'm a senior now, and I think he was one of the two best teachers I had in High School.

If you want to keep up your GPA, Priddy's class can be tough. Quizzes are medium, but some of his exams are hella brutal. But if you want to seriously learn about history, take his class.

Great for US! The weekly quizzes are important, but not overly difficult... though he may throw one or two pop quizzes if the class misbehaves a lot. Tests were like longer, multiple-choice quizzes: not very hard. Tells excellent stories, has seen all sorts of things! Actor, soldier, history teacher? Go figure.

Mr. Priddy is a great history teacher. He moves quickly and covers all the material. His quizzes screwed me over, but his entertaining stories and engaging lectures make up for the B.

He's one of the coolest Social Studies teachers I've ever met. He's very literal when it comes to tests (I just wish I had a better memory), and makes things clear to understand. It's worth taking AP Euro if you get Priddy as a teacher. He Totally prepares you for the test.

Mr. Priddy is a good teacher, but he's somewhat impersonal to his students. The quizzes on Fridays are very important for your grade, so study for them. He tells very good stories.

What grade you get in this class entirely depends on the amount of work you want to do. His tests and weekly quizzes can be a little stressing.
