"Excellence in learning for all: Expected, accepted, and encouraged!"
Today, Doyle/Ryder Elementary is known as a school founded on educational excellence for students. While school is a place where students learn more than just academic lessons, there is an inherent value in ensuring that the right work is being done by all of us. Because of this, the vision statement is founded on key principles related to learners and learning so that the driving message behind it embraces education. While we are working towards meeting and exceeding these goals, Doyle/Ryder is forging its way into the 21st Century to build students as leaders of learning to ensure that all of the students who attend Doyle/Ryder will be afforded the opportunity to be problem-solvers and innovators in the professional workplace within the next decade. Such programs which Doyle/Ryder has participated in include Hour of Code, Title I Intervention in Math and ELA, LLI, PBIS, and Study Island. Through various partnerships, Doyle/Ryder has also been able to participate in Crim Fitness clubs (PE-Nut, Mindfulness), YouthQuest afterschool programs, programs offered in partnership with Cranbrook Institute of Science, programs offered in partnership with the Flint Public Library, various functions through an on-site Department of Health and Human Services office, and the Flint Police Officer's League. In 2016-2017, Doyle/Ryder began a new partnership with the Crim Foundation for the installation of a Community Schools program that will be housed at Doyle/Ryder Elementary.
