East Junior High School
3 Best Public Middle Schools in Idaho
- Boise Independent School District, ID
Senior: For a relatively brand-new school when I attended, I loved the facilities, staff, teachers, and resources. Having a huge library and plenty of space outside to stretch our legs helped keep my fellow peers and I in check when we had rigorous classes throughout the day. I loved this school and would highly recommend anyone in Boise to send their 7th-9th grader here.

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!
