Xavier Charter School
- Public School
- Twin Falls, ID
- PK, K-12
Alum: Xavier was a great school because it prepared me for college so well! Being a K-12 school, it was able to utilize a teaching method that is not found at other schools. Students learn the foundations in elementary school, but as they get older, the same topics get discussed in greater detail as students are encouraged to think for themselves and ask questions. However, the work load can be a bit heavy and the social circle is a bit small, but I still had a great experience.

Riverstone International School
- Private School
- Boise, ID
- PK, K-12
Parent: We moved our daughter to Riverstone midway through her first grade year after having her in one of the more highly rated public elementary schools with excellent test scores. She is now in 3rd grade, and we have been highly impressed with the education she has received over the past 2+ years at Riverstone.
At the public school, the larger class sizes and the big disparity in academic abilities prevented teachers from working with our daughter individually. Significant emphasis was put toward preparing the children to excel the standardized math and reading tests. This was the major deciding factor when making the switch to Riverstone.
Riverstone is not teaching the kids to excel at testing. Rather, they are promoting creativity that has our daughter engaged and always excited to go to school every day! Riverstone's IB program is well-rounded and ties subject areas together for projects and field trips. They also have specialists teaching art, music, Spanish and Mandarin. Thank you!
