I hope you are well and that your school year is finishing strong. I wanted to share a message from our Head of School, Bob Carignan, in which he announces some exciting news. As you will read in his message below, not only is Riverstone International School being recognized on a national basis for our academic achievements, but our students also continue to outperform their counterparts around the state and the country on college admissions standardized tests.
Here in Boise, the 26 seniors in the Class of 2016 have completed their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme exams and are preparing to graduate and then head off to their colleges and universities in a few months. We applaud their achievements and celebrate their individual pursuits. Their college acceptance list is also included in this newsletter.
We are excited by all of the things that are happening at our school and invite you to be a part of our continuing success. Please let me know if you have any questions and how I might be able to help with the next step in your students' educational journey. You can contact me here at any time.
THE TOP AND MOST CHALLENGING PRIVATE SCHOOL IN IDAHO
The excitement continues as Riverstone is beginning to receive national attention in recent school rankings. As we shared earlier, Niche.com, an online review service, identified Riverstone as one of the "Top 100 Private Schools in America" and #1 in Idaho. Last week, The Washington Post published their annual ranking of America's Most Challenging High Schools and Riverstone was #1 in Idaho and #125 in the nation. The ranking formula favors Advanced Placement schools over International Baccalaureate schools, but with every Riverstone graduate taking six college-level exams, our school topped the list in Idaho. We are very proud of these honors.
While there are many types of school ratings such as these, it's always important to understand what goes into the ranking formula if Riverstone does not appear on a list - sometimes it's as simple as the algorithm not including private schools.
Over the past few weeks, we have been analyzing our own numbers and stats for the Class of 2016 - this class stands in a long line of exceptional classes and students - but with their graduation just around the corner, here are some interesting numbers to share:
The Class of 2016 has led our community with inclusion, acceptance, and an amazing can-do attitude. They leave feeling positive about themselves and their ability to be successful on the next leg of their journeys.
While the rankings and the scores mean that Riverstone is being recognized for the great school that it is, spending time with this year's seniors and those that have come before them is the true testament of the value of a Riverstone education.
