On the whole it is a good school. My son had several ok teachers and had many excellent teachers. Was involved with campus ministry, the mentor program and other leadership building programs. The group he enjoyed most, gained confidence, developed leadership and multitasking skills and developed better concentration. A program I saw many teens gain mature life skills. Problem???? The administration does not appreciate or support this program. Did I mention it is a unique program compared to all the other private schools in the area. In the words of the president of the school when asked to support the band/music program..."get in line". But the athletic department wants for nothing.

I love the environment at Father Ryan. Everyone is so supportive and loving, and we all work with each other to help reach goals! It is not a school of individuality but a school of community where you are not alone!
An overall good school if you are a rich, pretty white girl. The administration hunts the student for any possible reason to get them into trouble and gives them a glorified police interrogation. The students constantly make racist remarks with little to no intervention from staff. The student of color are only highlighted to be tokens in advertisement pictures. If you are rich and blonde you will excel, if you arent then maybe you'll survive. "You will be known and loved" is their slogan but I guarantee you will be scammed, cheated, and made to feel like a prisoner. The whole school is a cash grab
