Open Quote We love Ryan Elementary for our son and our family. The teacher that my son has is so caring and didn’t waste any time setting up a meeting with me to discuss my son’s learning goals as he came in struggling with literacy. The support staff are also warm and engaging each time I am there to volunteer, pick up or drop off. I loved that the music teacher knew my son’s name on the first day of school and said bye to him (by name) when he left the school. The pick up and drop off is a breeze in comparison to other schools. Faculty are placed at high traffic areas to ensure the safety of students being dropped off and picked up and also at crosswalks. The PTA is extremely active and is always bringing fun and exciting things to the school to ensure money is being raised and that money is going back to the needs of the school. I am very impressed with the communication from the principal and my son’s teacher. I always feel in the “loop” of the goings on of the school and community. We loved the Hawk Hustle 5k put on by the PTA to raise money for the school! As a former elementary school teacher, I toured many, many, schools before deciding the best fit for my son. We are proud and thankful to call Ryan Elementary our home. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
