I feel the success that Ralston has enjoyed is a direct result of involved families, willing children, and a dedicated staff. I am anxious to see what great things our students will be doing in the next 10-15 years -Mr. Heisler

I think Ralston Elementary school is the best!Every Year I don't care what teacher I get Because they are all so great.We have the 3 chance warning.1.warning 2.sit out 3.call parents. And the principal comes in often to check and talk with everyone in the class.The classrooms are the best though!In every classroom there is a million books to read!I cant wait for next year!

I went to Ralston as did my brothers and sisters. Now my daughter attends there. I feel, as in any school, you have excellent teachers and teachers who still have alot to learn. I have come across many teachers who will go above and beyond their job to do what they can to help you. And as for Mr. Miller, he has been a tremendous help to me and my daughter. He is attentive and I appreciate his sincerity. My first year at the school was not one that I would want to write about, however, Mr. Miller was not in charge at that time. I feel that things have gotten much better since he has come along.
