Principal's Message

Greetings Ralston Scholars and Parents!

As the proud principal of Ralston Intermediate School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. I look forward to a great year filled with academics, positive experiences, and fun!

Intermediate school is one of the most important times in your child’s life. The adolescent years can be emotional, exciting, and surprising. Ralston has outstanding teachers, staff, administrators, and counselors to provide unconditional social and emotional support helping each student to feel welcome, connected to learning, and safe.

We strive to challenge each scholar and provide them with a rigorous curriculum. Your scholar will experience a variety of learning opportunities and will be supported so they can reach their personal best. Teachers will make knowledge accessible to their students by integrating effective instructional strategies and technology. All scholars should graduate from high school prepared for post-secondary education, career and be productive members of society.

Our practices and policies align with our Garden Grove Unified School District's 3 goals.

Goal 1 - Focus on Academic Goals

Goal 2 - Focus on Personal Skills

Goal 3 - Life-Long Success

We look forward to working alongside our families in educating students to become life-long learners. Please consider joining one of our many opportunities for parents and families to be involved this school year. We appreciate your support and interest in your student’s entire school experience as they work to achieve academic, social, and life-long success. There are many things you can do to help your scholar achieve success at Ralston including: 1) support and encourage them to complete their homework on a daily basis, 2) communicate with teachers and staff, 3) use the Parent Portal to monitor your scholar’s grades and assignments and 4) check their planner on a regular basis. We can ensure your scholar has a successful year at Ralston by working together.

It is an honor to serve as the principal of Ralston Intermediate School. 

Eagle Pride!


Feather Hocking, Principal
