Ralston Valley was a great high school for myself. I came from a small middle school up in the mountains and although it was daunting at first it was a great experience. I suppose I was in the unpopular group in school but I enjoyed it nonetheless and gained great friends in the process. While there ...  Read more

I attended Ralston Valley for two years before leaving and home schooling my last two years. I couldn't handle the disrespect of the students towards the teachers and the laziness of the teachers anymore. Discipline simply does not exist here. Kids wear whatever they want despite the dress code and teachers ...  Read more

Our child has been attending here for 3 years. He lettered academically in his Freshman year and was elected to National Honor Society the following fall. He carries a 3.85 GPA and takes honors classes. It is a rigorous schedule and it is good for him, however, he will be attending a different high ...  Read more

If you think it important your children gain an understanding of the value of other points of view, diversity and tolerance, in addition to academics, go elsewhere. RV has close to no diversity in student backgrounds, ethnic or otherwise and does not appear to seek it out. Half our son's teachers did ...  Read more

Ralston Valley High School is exceptional! The principal is amazing and has a great relationship with all the students. Challenging curriculum and students are very prepared to go on to college. Would recommend Ralston Valley to anyone looking for an excellent school for their children.

Ralston Valley offers all of the opportunities for one to challenger his/herself. If a student does not receive enought homework, then the level of his/her classes should be raised. The cirriculum is very rigorous if one takes advantage of the difficult classes offered. The teachers are usually available ...  Read more

I disagree with some of the other reviewers, my child does not have a lot of homework and he is taking mostly AP classes. But, I will be honest my student is bright. Athletics are important at this school and as in most schools football is considered the cool sport. RVHS has a great music program-both ...  Read more

This school promotes cliques and 'rich child issues.' We have had major problems with sending our child to this school. Better schools in the area are Lakewood or Arvada West.

We have transferred in this year from a small Colorado school district. We love this school! From parent involvement, student involvement and obvious passion for Ralston Valley, teacher excellence, and a beautiful facility - this school has it all! Homework is heavy, as it should be - our children's ...  Read more
