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.
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!
This school is horrible in terms of their practices with parents. Our daughter was supposed to attend this school and we had to withdraw due to my spouse losing her job. We were new to the area and moved for my spouse's position, so without the income we could not afford the school. The school is continuing to hound us for their full year's worth of tuition even though our child has spent 0 school days at Riverstone. The administration and their board needs to recognize our exceptional circumstances and let us out of the contract. We now are working with an attorney to accomplish what just makes good common sense.
