Riverstone International School is a unique independent school for Preschool through Grade 12 students, located in Idaho’s capital city of Boise. Established in 1997, the school was founded to offer local students the benefits of a quality independent education. Situated on 14 acres, our campus is nestled between the Boise River and the Greenbelt in southeast Boise. Our single campus for all grades encourages interactions between students, staff, and parents, and strengthens our sense of community, which is a hallmark of our school.
Riverstone International School is an International Baccalaureate World School, offering the full continuum of the International Baccalaureate programs. Our students experience a well-rounded education based on our five pillars of Academic Excellence, International Understanding, Community and Service, Leadership by Example, and Outdoor Education.
Riverstone graduates are accepted into the finest colleges and universities worldwide. We actively seek diversity, both locally and internationally, and are proud to have students and staff representing more than 45 countries included in our school community. Our students have been recognized nationally for their community service and leadership. Through outdoor trips in the mountains, rivers, valleys, and deserts of Idaho, our students develop self-confidence, teamwork and leadership skills, and an environmental ethic. Students and staff work alongside each other in all aspects of school life, which ensures that students are known and nurtured to reach their full potential.
