From a modest beginning in 1976 with one room in North Mumbai, today, Ryan International Group of Institutions has evolved into a premier global educational institution that educates 270,000 students in 135 schools across 40 cities in India. Despite the group’s impressive reach and scale, built brick-by-brick over 40 years of dedicated service, what sets Ryan apart is its vision of being an educationist, rather than a business. Ryan Group’s vision, articulated by Founder Chairman Dr. A.F. Pinto, draws from a deep and abiding conviction about education: “We aim to be a premier global educational institution which develops the human resource for our dynamic and expanding community, the state, the nation, the region, and the world at large. Through our institutions, we will cultivate all round development of qualities in a student”. It is the well-being, personal development and future preparedness of every Ryan student that drives the Group's leadership and its 15,000 staff every day.

Imparting education beyond textbooks, Ryan International Group of Schools emphasizes holistic education and provides a
challenging learning environment that goes beyond the regular curriculum. It pioneers state-of-the-art events to help students receive laurels at the state, national & international levels. “Through various activities and events like International Children’s Festival of Performing Arts (with over 20,000 participants from 25 countries), Indian Model United Nations (India’s first & largest UN simulation) and Ryan TV (learning about media studies, TV journalism, film making & camera handling), we encourage our students’ unique talents and ensure that they receive the right training, support and motivation to develop their talents and skills,” explains Madam Grace Pinto, Managing Director, Ryan International Group of Schools.

"Ryan’s relevant and current pedagogy focuses on instilling 21st century skills such as collaboration, critical thinking and communication while making learning a meaningful, engaging and interesting experience"

Holistic Pedagogy, Embracing Technology
Ryan’s relevant and current pedagogy focuses on instilling 21st century skills such as collaboration, critical thinking and communication, while making learning a meaningful, engaging and interesting experience. Elucidating the Group’s teaching approach, Ryan Pinto (CEO) says, “Ryan Group offers a range of national boards like CBSE, ICSE/ISC, state boards (SSC/HSC), and international boards like IB & IGCSE (Cambridge). Beyond curricula, we provide Wi-Fi enabled classrooms, extensive libraries, fully equipped laboratories, playgrounds, swimming pools,
astro-turf, auditoria, smart boards and much more. We also have specialist teaching in media, art, music and dance. This helps our schools to enrich student’s life with a plethora of trans-disciplinary activities that go beyond the basic requirements and enhance the learning experience”.

From being the first-of-its-kind group to include computer education in curricula in the early 90s, Ryan today makes widespread use of technology to make education more effective and enjoyable. While its association with leading Edutech players like Microsoft supports its vision of nurturing future-ready students, NITI Aayog’s Atal Tinkering Labs (ATL) fosters curiosity, creativity and imagination and Ryan’s Parent App facilitates rich & effortless communication between teachers and parents.

Safe, Sound & Shining Future
Prioritizing student safety, Ryan follows a three-pronged approach – Physical Safety (CCTV, security guards), Psychological Safety (cyber etiquette & anti-bullying education), and School Transport Safety (buses with GPS tracking systems).

The Future is Bright
With so many firsts behind it and a dynamic approach to education built around solid & enduring principles, the Ryan Group is well positioned for the future. The Group looks forward to the next decade with excitement and anticipation. Group’s CEO Ryan Pinto sums it up perfectly, “We have a commitment to India's children, now and in the future. We will spare no effort to meet this commitment, to prepare the children of our proud nation for their tryst with the future”.
