New documentary showcases innovative Boise school

"Rise: Voice of a New Generation," documents the journey of students and staff at One Stone, an independent school in downtown Boise.

BOISE, Idaho — A new documentary showcasing a Boise school that is working to reinvent the high school experience premiered Tuesday night at the Egyptian Theatre.

One Stone is an nonprofit independent school in downtown Boise that focuses on student-led learning, creativity and innovation.

The film, "Rise: Voice of a New Generation," documents the journey of students and staff, and highlights the importance of the student voice.

"I think that students have a voice, especially in the educational system and it should be valued because it's their experience," One Stone student Bennett Huhn said. "And when you listen to students, then you're more likely to create an experience that is more conducive to their style of learning."
