Father Ryan is by far, still the best experience of my life. Their motto, "You will be known and you will be loved," is true to its word. All the faculty and staff were so welcoming everyday, which makes it not so bad to be in school. The friends I have made are still my friends to this day. The environment of the high school makes me wanting to go to school, and pay attention in classes. The classes were also very helpful, and easy to understand. If you did not understand it, the teachers are willing to help you walk through everything step-by-step. There are also college counselors that will walk you through the process of choosing a college that is right for you. Everyone at Father Ryan is helpful in there own way. You will not be lost or unwanted, there is always someone there for you when you need it. Father Ryan High School was a great experience for a high school.
At Father Ryan, the mixture of Catholicism and everyday learning is superb. The facilities and teachers are top of the line. Personally, I have yet to experience a teacher that was unable to construct my mind in accordance with the topic. Although athletics aren't particularly strong at the time, it has a rich history of dominant teams known throughout the Nashville area.
