Is Riverside my boundary school?


If you are not sure if Riverside is your boundary school:

  • View Boise School District's School Boundary Locator to identify the neighborhood school your student will attend. Note: Some Boise City addresses are not within the boundaries of the Boise School District.

  • Review Boise School District Boundary maps.

  • If you have questions regarding a specific address or if your address is close to a boundary, please call Riverside's office at 208-854-5980

Open Enrollment Applications

If you are NOT currently living in the Riverside school boundary, but would like to apply for OPEN ENROLLMENT for your child to attend Kindergarten at Riverside, Please follow the directions below.


  • Access and print an Open Enrollment form our District Site. Fill it out and submit it directly to the school office as soon as possible.
  • Plan to attend the Registration/Screening day at your child’s boundary/home-school. It is very important that you enroll at your boundary school FIRST in case we are not able to accommodate for your child’s open enrollment at Riverside. You will NOT attend Riverside's Registration/Screening on March 8, 2021. We will request records from your child’s boundary/home-school upon acceptance of your child’s open enrollment form.
  • Make sure that you attach your child’s birth certificate and immunization records. If your child’s open enrollment is accepted, we will need to have copies of these to complete enrollment. Open enrollment will not be accepted without this paperwork on file.

Preparing your child for Kindergarten

A Parents Guide to Promoting Early Literacy, published by the Idaho State Department of Education, has some great information for how to support your child's learning.


Reading aloud to your child, modeling fluent reading (reading that sounds like talking), and discussing the story/characters is a fun and powerful way to support literacy and language development. Check out Why Can't I Skip 20 Minutes of Reading Tonight.
