About Ryan Elementary School...
At Ryan Elementary we are proud to teach our students the Three Ryan Rs: Respect, Responsibility, and Right to Learn in a Safe Environment. We are an Olweus school, and through weekly class meetings our students and teachers discuss what it looks like and feels like to have a bully free environment. We teach the "Royal Life Skills" and promote pro-social behavior and problem solving through our Second Step Program. Ryan is a school that also prides itself on having a very active and dedicated P.T.O. This in itself shows the commitment and support our community has for our school. Even though Ryan earned an "A" rating from the ADE, we are not resting on our laurels. We are constantly striving to offer our students opportunities to enrich their learning. This year we introduced two programs that will allow students to develop critical thinking, team building and creativity skills: LEGO Robotics and Odyssey of the Mind. We also pride ourselves on having many voracious readers on campus, and as evidence we sent a team to the finals of Battle of the Books. A variety of other fine extra-curricular activities enhance our students' education including our Ryan News Crew, choir and honor choir, band, strings, and even a Royal Shakespearean Club. Finally and most importantly, we have a staff that is always striving for excellence by learning new research based teaching strategies that will best meet the needs of our students. We invite you to join our family!
