Father Ryan High School
Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

Many teachers are not qualified and brag about this which is ridiculous but may staff members are very old and have been at school 50+ years - nice but needless to say they have not kept up with teaching styles

The kids do very little or homework that is not relevant but rather busy work

The homework is a joke and the kids cheat terribly. The teachers are lazy at best and not responsive at all to parents and students

My child was not one of the "in" students. Students were treated differently and the teachers who have been there decades are out of touch! Was not happy with the administration and communication.which they did not do very well was disappointing. Homework was -turn in whenever - and teachers had very different guidelines with the administration not being responsive or helpful at all.

Sarah Keiffner, Latin and Forensic coach is an AMAZING teacher. She continually goes above and beyond for her students and brings her team together to feel like family. Can not say enough about how great she is.

Father Ryan has some of the most academically gifted, caring, and fun teachers of any school I have encountered. They teach my children in a way that makes them WANT to succeed and feel good doing it.

Amount of homework: Don't know

This is highly debatable, as a Freshman I have seen kids totally floored by the amount of homework they have. It is a learning curve and depends on the classes they take. I can say that the teachers are always willing to re-teach something my children might be having trouble with.

Having four children, all in different academic and social levels/groups, I have seen the values that Father Ryan teaches when my children face a rough spot. Persistence, grit, and determination are key values the school consistently talks about. My children feel like their school is cheering them on and they KNOW they have the determination not to quit with a whole community believing in them. These values are important fundamental life long skills and I could not be happier that Father Ryan works with us parent, to continue to instill how important they are.
