Greetings from the Principal:
At Riverside Secondary School, we have a rich tradition of academic excellence and student success, offering a variety of programs and services to meet the learning needs of all students. In addition to a regular high school curriculum, we offer a Specialist High Skills Major Program in 6 areas, Co-operative Education, an Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) in the Automotive field and the International Baccalaureate Programme.
In November of 2018, Riverside Secondary School was officially authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School
. September of 2019 will mark the commencement of delivering IB courses to our first cohort of students. These students will also be our first IB graduating class in June of 20121. With our Grade 9 Preparatory enrolment steadily increasing from our initial 2017 IB Prep enrolment, we are very optimitic that the community is confident in and excited about this rigorous and rewarding program. Riverside Secondary School is well-established as a Leadership School as highlighted by our motto, "Rebels are Leaders"! The combination of our positive community image and our new IB Diploma Programme will help us on our quest of excellence in the local and global community!
We are very proud of our students' academic achievement. Many of our grade 12 graduates earn scholarships, awards and bursaries to Colleges and Universities across Ontario and North America. In addition to academics, we offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities, including championship athletic teams. Our students, staff and coaches are proud of their achievements in each of these areas. I hope students will take the opportunity to join at least one of our clubs or sports teams.
We thank you for taking time to explore our website. Check back regularly to see important updates and activities that are taking place.
Ms. D. Salinitri
