Our Vision and Mission
We strive to create an inclusive, safe, and challenging learning environment where students are responsible, accountable, mindful, and supportive. At Ralston we treat each other with respect.
Ralston Middle School strives to provide a nurturing environment where all students, parents, and staff pursue academic excellence and participate fully in the life of the school.
The Ralston School Mission Statement, developed by staff, parents, and student representatives to our School Site Council, serves as a framework for our school’s goals and priorities. This spirit of partnership pervades all that we do at Ralston.
Ralston’s basic mission is to provide a strong instructional program that focuses on the diverse needs of middle school students. We believe that academic excellence is our most important attribute and our highest priority. We also believe that a program of excellence provides students with enrichment experiences that extend the basic curriculum.
