Authorizations & Accreditations

Riverstone values the rigorous processes associated with accreditations and authorizations from organizations that promote similar ideals of education. These authorizations and accreditations offer parents a third-party validation that our school delivers the quality of education we advertise.

We encourage parents to confirm our authorizations and accreditations — and to look for proper credentials at any school they may be considering.

All Riverstone staff members participate in our accreditation and authorization evaluations. Many of our staff members also serve as accrediting team members for other schools seeking accreditations and authorizations.

Additionally, Riverstone is the only school in Boise — and one of only 17 nationwide — which is authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer the complete continuum of International Baccalaureate Programmes:

  • Diploma Programme (DP for grades 11–12)
  • Middle Years Programme (MYP for grades 6–10)
  • Primary Years Programme (PYP for preschool – grade 5)

Please note that authorized IB World Schools share a commitment to the International Baccalaureate philosophy, but every school develops its own curriculum.

Please visit the International Baccalaureate Organization website to confirm our authorization.
