My children are getting an experience unavailable anywhere else in our community. Instead of just getting information, they are LEARNING HOW TO LEARN. This helps them to be completely independent in the future and will set them apart from their peers.

We moved to this school 3 years ago this March, and could not be more thrilled with our choice. The teachers, the learning environment, and the community make all the difference.

It is the People, the Place and the Culture of caring and learning that matters – Riverstone International School has all that to offer to its students. As one of the proud parents, it brings great confidence that we can turn over the workplace, and our society to leaders coming from students graduating at Riverstone International School, where a great inspiration towards collaborative learning and service to community is clearly demonstrated.

Riverstone is a unique, highly communal school that offers its students an incredible IB education while fostering a sense of self reliance and appreciation for the outdoors. We have three children there who are all very different learners and each of them has thrived because of the incredible faculty, attention to the individual student, and a willingness on the part of the school to go above and beyond. Riverstone gives its students a balance of academic excellence, a strong sense of community and an amazing outdoor education, all while sitting on the list of the top 50 best private school in the US! We truly love it and feel that it is a gem in Boise!

The academic load at Riverstone requires its students to be persistent, and determined. 100% of the students go on to college and are beyond prepared for their collegiate experience.

Riverstone holds its students accountable for their actions and creates a platform for students to have a voice, be heard and problem solve.

Bullying is a huge problem and it's one the administration knows about and refuses to address often either turning a blind eye, telling the students to ignore it, or expelling students for standing up for themselves. It's sick.
