The Ryan International schools are dedicated to providing their students with a headstart in today's competitive world . In addition to the 3 Rs , emphasis is laid on nurturing character, personality, values and vocational skills.

By education we mean an all-round drawing out of the best in child and adult-body, mind and spirit. Literacy is not the end of education nor even the beginning. It is only one of the means whereby man and woman can be educated. Literacy in itself is no education.

All children can grow and learn in a safe, caring and orderly environment. Our mission at ryan is to educate children through a comprehensive academic curriculum, supported by critical thinking skills, as well as communicating skills.Students are provided oppurtunities that promote social, emotional, cultural, mental and physical growth.

We intend to have a Ryan International School in each of the metros, mini metros and A-class cities of India, to meet the ever-burgeoning expectations of the Urban professionals for their children. The high standards we have been maintaining in our schools are reinforcement of our basic beliefs. "Where the vision is one year, cultivate flowers, Where the vision is ten years, cultivate trees, where the vision is eternity, cultivate people".



With the dawn of each New Year and the passing of each new day, we at the Ryan and St. Xavier's Group of Schools, rededicate ourselves to our mission of carrying the ever radiating torch of education into the big Wide World. In this, our unfailing faith in the Lord Almighty helps us to remain committed, steadfast and strong, for He remains our Father, who leads us.

Today, the Ryan Group of Institutions with its more than 100 schools has worked its way up, to be Nationally acclaimed and Internationally recognized.

Through the education we impart to our children, we endeavour to reach out to Society and thereby into a repidly progressing world. We firmly believe that grooming every child entrusted to our care, chiselling his talents and empowering him academicaly is important. Preparing him socially with the help of the parents to give him emotional security and strength, will help him to fly out into the broad expanse of this universe to lead a life of dignity and success with God's blessings.

It is both a privilege and pleasure to present our first news letter “ENDEAVOUR”. Education is a never ending , on going process and as the world shrinks with revolutionized  communication system  coupled with ever growing awareness across the  globe, the challenges faced by schools are far too many. The day is not far when we see a paradigm shift in our education system, and we at Ryan become the pioneers in this new world of education. And undoubtedly the inspiration and guiding force behind these feelings is none other than our visionary Chairman Dr A F Pinto and gracious Madam Grace Pinto.
scan0059At Ryan’s, we endeavor to implement the vision as enunciated by our Chairman and follow the principle of KASSAM – Train children in KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDE , SKILLS, SOCIAL and MORAL values. We believe that right blend of aptitude and attitude in a sure recipe for success, keeping these principles in view besides regular academics, myriad activities are included in day to day teaching learning process thereby creating an ambient of holistic development of children. We endeavor to make our students academically sound, morally upright, spiritually strong and socially sensitive and globally aware “THE GREATEST GIFTS YOU CAN GIVE YOUR CHILDREN ARE THE ROOTS OF RESPONSIBILITY AND THE WINGS OF INDEPENDENCE.”
