Welcome to Ralston Elementary School 

The Ralston staff is committed to educational excellence by creating a challenging and engaging child-centered environment that ensures the safety and well-being of all students. Ralston’s strength lies in the efforts of students, parents, staff and community working together.  We offer 1:1 devices for all students, a STEM Lab, Maker Space Lab, and all students are taught art, music and physical education by certified AMP teachers. A wide variety of after-school enrichment programs are offered as well as a Kindness Crew, Running Club, and theater programs for both K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 4th, 5th grade students. Ralston is proud of our long history of receiving the John Irwin Award of Excellence and the Blue Ribbon School Award.

About Me
My name is Rob Malling and this is my third year as Ralston's school leader. I have served as an elementary school principal for 12 years and a classroom teacher prior to that. I live in Golden and I love the outdoors; fly fishing, mountain biking, snowboarding, and rafting are my favorite ways to spend times with friends and family. I'm a proud father of three young men who all attend Jeffco Schools. I lead by my core values of Positivity, Effectiveness, Equity, Dependability, and Communication. My goal is create a positive school experience for every student! I'm excited to observe our Mountaineers grow year after year and I'm here for you anytime.
