Welcome to Ryerson Elementary School located in London, Ontario, Canada.

Located in old North London, Ryerson Public School serves a community of approximately 400 students from diverse backgrounds.  Currently we are also the holding school for students who live in the growing Richmond Hill and Sunningdale subdivisions, and those students are transported by school bus to and from school.  Built in 1916, we have a long tradition of academic excellence which we continue to provide to our students.

We have outstanding parental and community support, and strong value is placed on academics, the arts, and sports by our school community. Our motto, "Excellence in Action" epitomizes our school characteristics.

Measures of Student Achievement and Success At Thames Valley

We believe that assessment and evaluation of student achievement are integral parts of the learning process. Information gathered through assessment and evaluation helps teachers to determine students' strengths and weaknesses in their achievement of the curriculum expectations. It also serves to guide teachers in adapting curriculum and instructional approaches to students' needs and in assessing the overall effectiveness of programs and classroom practices.

A variety of methods are used to gauge student progress including: teacher observation, classroom tests, projects and other examples of student work.
