I love Ryan High School! When I moved here, everyone made we feel welcomed. The school is bigger than what I am used to, but it gives me more opportunities to build new friendships. They have many clubs and organizations to join like Rotary Interact, Key Club, Fashion Club, Spanish Club, and so much more! They make sure students have plans whether they be college bound or not. They are also connected to a wonderful school with programs that can allow students to graduate with a range of certifications to join the workforce once they graduate.

I think Ryan high school is a great school. The teachers are nice and very helpful, and so is all of the school staff. They also have good technology to make learning and teaching easier. Would definitely recommend!
I love the people and the community the school creates, but the academics could be more rigorous. The systems and curriculum for the advanced courses are not as difficult as they should be to prepare students for the tests they must take for college credit. When signed up for an advanced course, it should be challenging for the student and prepare them for college. Not many classes accomplish this at Ryan. The staff is very friendly and for the most part willing do anything to help students who are struggling and willing to be helped. The sports are coached by some of the best in the game and our fine arts are led to almost as many accomplishments as our sports. Ryan is truly the home of champions.
