Glad to see Riverstone International School will be attending this year's Wilderness Risk Management Conference!
We applaud your commitment to enhancing your risk management practices!
Good morning Riverstone International School Staff, this is Michael Forman.

I am an urban farmer that works with local schools to build community gardens and provide garden education programs to middle and high school students. These programs teach valuable accounting, designing, building, planning and sales skills either as a part of the science curriculum or as an after school program and I would like to have a conversation with you about the value that school garden and garden education programs can bring to your students.

Can we setup a meeting during the week of April 1st to discuss this?

We have been very pleased with our grandson's education at Riverstone. He is very articulate and knowledgeable about a variety of subjects. Even when we might disagree about something, he can always make many good points for his choice. I attribute that to good teachers. Thank you !!
My name is Haniel and I have passion for children.With Globalization it is important to prepare our children to connect with people from various cultures and parts of the world to work together and study issues of common interest. The reason why I am writing to you is for us to explore together a possibility of your international school opening a branch in Kenya.

This will open an opportunity for our Kenyan children to start having a global mindset making them have the desire to contribute to improving the world. On the other hand we can have an exchange programme whereby during some seasons your children may come over and learn from our Kenyan School and vice versa.

I have a 5 acre piece of land where the school can be constructed. Please get back to me for further discussions.

You can email me on [email protected] or call on +254712233013
Congrats, #1 private high school in Idaho per MSN
Have a great year!!!

This week, a group of prospective students in Brazil (and a few lucky Riverstone staff) were treated to an hourlong high school-level Art class on perspective drawing taught by Tanith Brown. In coordination with @efigieuca, this class gave prospective international students a snapshot of what classes are like at Riverstone. Interested in what it's like to live and learn at Riverstone?

In Grade 8 Design Technology, Pierre, Anne, and Macy took turns calibrating and operating a drone. From Math and Design Tech teacher Matthew Deren: “Once they get comfortable with the operation, they will move on to more advanced features such as GPS-programmed flight path, follow-the-target tracking, and commercial filming.”

Meanwhile in Grade 3, “students transformed from 3rd graders into water droplets, clouds, suns, ice crystals, and more through Reader's Theater! The classroom became a stage as the students collaborated in small groups to create skits about the water cycle. They applied unit of inquiry concepts while creatively working together to design props, backdrops, and costumes. Reader's Theater challenges students to be communicators and team players. It was amazing to see the imaginations of the students come to life in their performances!”
