There are so many different workshops that are offered to parents! My child sees that I am invested in his future. Thank you Ryan School staff for everything you do to make Ryan a great place to be.

Ryan school is an amazing place to learn. The staff is amazing. Teachers do all they can to help make the students successful. The principal is a great leader and has made many changes. I attended Ryan school and my children also attended. It is a wonderful community of caring people. A place that cares about your student.

I had the opportunity to visit the school last week and I must say that I was so impressed with Thomas P. Ryan Elementary School. The staff was welcoming, and the students were well behaved and hard workers. 5 Stars!

The school prepares well for Ocala and eventually Mt Pleasant, but that is about it. Entering a university is unlikely. The entire system needs a complete re-evaluation. Success rate is low. It is too difficult to improve due to budget issues and ongoing challenges of the local community. If you can help it, don't risk your kids. Send them to the west side with acceptable API scores or at least sit down with your kids everyday to advance their learning. If you don't know the material, learn with your kids. It will create a good bond and they will still advance more than doing nothing. Entering a university can be intimidating and discouraging to your child if they aren't prepared.

I think the school has gotten a little better. I think that the teachers need to ask for more involvement from parents. The school needs to have more activies so that the kids are excited when going to school. The teachers are good people but require more training, in my opinion.

I think the academic programs have improved over the last 2 years. The school should offer extracurricular activities, but I don't believe they have the budget for the programs.
