Archbishop Ryan High School Reviews

I am currently a senior and have loved my time at Ryan! I am so happy that I chose this school and am grateful for the students and the few teachers whom have made my experience here absolutely indispensable. However, I feel like my experience would have not been possible had I not been an Honors and AP student all 4 years. Many students I have met in the other Tracks have not had the same responses as me and I truly hope that Ryan's Administration will reevaluate how much they are willing to change their system. The lack of the teachers' credibility and passion for education and their students' success is atrocious.I have witnessed the teachers talk down on students who were not in Honors/AP as if they were the most stupid creatures on Earth. Any teacher who dares to speak to any human being in such an inappropriate manner does not deserve to have the privilege of teaching future leaders of the world. I hope Ryan's administration will reevaluate the quality of Ryan education.

I actually had a very good experience at Archbishop Ryan High School. The academic environment definitely prepared me for college. The teachers were down to earth, helpful and very knowledgeable in their subject areas. I made lasting friendships there and the variety of extracurricular activities was limitless. I played football, managed Girls Lacrosse, and was the Treasurer for Future Business Leaders of America. There was something for everyone. I would highly recommend Archbishop Ryan High School for any student who would like to be college bound.
Over the past three years, Archbishop Ryan has become my second home. I have made life long friends and have been involved in some of the most amazing organizations and sports teams. My classmates, teammates, and fellow committee memebers have taught me hard work, dedication, and determination. Many of my amazing teachers have made an impact on me that I know will last the rest of my life. I have learned so much and grew physically, socially, and spiritually and will cherish each and every memory after I graduate. Archbishop Ryan was truly a great choice to spend my four years of high school.
