High School Placement Tests for ELA and Math

Placement testing for high school is now complete.  If you have any questions regarding these tests, please contact Assistant Principal Lauren Park or 8th Grade Counselor Rachel Parker.



For any 8th graders applying to private high schools, please make sure to mark your current school as "Ralston Middle School" instead of "Ralston Intermediate School," as there has been some confusion regarding this.  If you would like transcripts sent to the schools you are applying to, please fill out a Transcript Request Form from the schools you are applying to and turn these in at the Ralston Front Office.  If you have any questions regarding this, please see your 8th grade counselor, Lauren Rocha.
