Our School

Opening its doors in 2001, Ryan Park Elementary is one of four elementary schools in the MSD of Steuben County, serving approximately 420 students in grades K-5. Ryan Park is a "bus-in" school with a vast majority of the students residing in rural areas of Steuben County. Steuben County borders the Michigan state line to the north and the Ohio state line to the east with Angola as the county seat. Of our 420 students, 46% of the student body is male while 54% is female. Ryan Park assists 31% through the free and reduced lunch assistance program.

Ryan Park is accredited through AdvancEd, which is a strong, unified organization dedicated to education quality representing schools across the United States and in 65 countries worldwide. Our school improvement goal focuses on improving in the areas of reading math as measured by the statewide ISTEP+ annual test. Professional development is offered and encouraged for every staff member to model life-long learning.

Our school has participated in the development and implementation of a district-wide curriculum based on the Indiana Standards in English/Language Arts, mathematics, science, and social studies as well as other age appropriate curriculum across the grade levels. Our curriculum is reviewed annually for changes and supporting resources using previous spring ISTEP+ assessment data. In order to best meet the needs of our students, Ryan Park staff uses data from a number of quality assessments to drive instruction. Academic programming includes "Response to Instruction" (RtI) levels beginning with classroom differentiation within the regular classroom moving to small group and individual instruction during scheduled periods of the day. Our staff is dedicated to the success of every child.

We look forward to a fantastic school year!  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at (260) 668-8873.

About Ryan Park

Purpose
Ryan Park Elementary School is a safe and innovative learning community, in which positive role models challenge all individuals to achieve their highest potential.

Direction
Ryan Park strives to provide purposeful instruction and motivate individuals to become independent learners and productive citizens to guide future generations.

The staff of Ryan Park Elementary is committed to the belief that
  • All individuals can learn, however, differently.
  • All individuals have the potential to reach their personal best.
  • Families are the first influence on the child's development.
  • Every individual deserves a safe and positive learning environment.
  • Every students will be provided an engaging education using multiple modalities.

Believing all students can learn, but in different ways, our teachers use a variety of instructional strategies. Incorporated into the types of experiences offered to the students are whole and small group instruction, learning centers, and technology integration. Our kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students learn in a 1:1 iPad environment, and our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade learn in a 1:1 Chromebook environment, extending their learning beyond the textbook and classroom.

Ryan Park parents belong to the PTO and are very active as volunteers in our school. Parents can be found working in classrooms on a daily basis as well as raising money for additional school equipment.

It is the policy of the Metropolitan School District of Steuben County to provide equal access to all employment and educational opportunities regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, creed or ancestry, age, gender, marital status, or disability.
