St Mary S Ryken High School is located in Leonardtown, MD. It is a private school that serves 664 students in grades 9-12. St Mary S Ryken High School is coed (school has male and female students) and is Roman Catholic in orientation. The school belongs to the Other school association(s).
In 2010, St Mary S Ryken High School had 14 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Maryland average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
The school is getting away from its educational roots and spending too much time and effort on its sports program. Most teachers attempting to teach AP classes are not qualified and do not demand enough of the students for them to pass the AP final. Major sports get all the resources and minor sports/girls' sports are short changed. It has some great teachers but many who do not have a clue. The dress code is a joke and there is little enforcement of the rules across the board. If you are going to make rules you best start enforcing them. Of course the school uniform changes every year so who knows what is expected. I'm not happy with the school's performance.

The school seems to be getting away from it's core values by investing billions of dollars on an athletic field and recruiting sports students at he expense of parents who are committed to giving their children a christian education. The direction the school is heading is very concerning!
