ISES Welcomes Riverstone International School

International Student Education Services is very pleased to announce the addition of Riverstone International School as one of its premier boarding school partners.

Riverstone International School is located in Boise, Idaho.  The largest city in the Pacific Northwest (pop. 600,000), Boise has consistently appeared in the top-ranking lists of U.S. cities for livability, safety and recreation.

At Riverstone, every student enters the International Baccalaureate Program.  Indeed, Riverstone is one of only 17 Schools in the USA that is accredited to offer both the IB Middle Year Program and the Diploma Program.  It has been well established that IB learners become highly motivated, independent thinkers that graduate high school with an exceptional level of self-discipline, cultural awareness and a breadth of knowledge that makes them prized university candidates.  For example, in 2015 the average SAT score for Riverstone students was 1893.  Consequently, 100% of Riverstone graduates were admitted to some of the most prestigious U.S. universities including Brown University, Cornell University, UC Berkeley, MIT, New York University, Stanford University, Tufts University, University of Chicago and Yale University., among others.

While academics are of primary importance at Riverstone International School, students soon discover that not all classrooms have walls.  The mountains, deserts and rivers of Idaho provide the ideal environment for the Schoolâ��s outstanding Outdoor Education Program where students acquire outdoor and life-skills and establish enduring friendships while enjoying rafting, hiking, fishing, rock-climbing, camping and skiing.

International students at Riverstone reside in a brand-new dormitory with 32 boys and girls, resident assistants and dorm parents.  The residence is located in downtown Boise, close to shopping, restaurants and theaters.

Minimum admission requirements for Riverstone International School are a GPA of 2.5 and an iBT of 50 for 9th grade, 70 for 10th grade and 80 for 11th grade.  The SSAT is not required.

Cost for Riverstone International School is $50,100.
