Riverside Secondary School
International Baccalaureate


Riverside Secondary School is a proud International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, authorized to offer the Diploma Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy-a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education-that we believe is important for our students.

Our IB-trained educators have developed enhanced curriculum to prepare students in our Grade 9 & 10 Preparatory Program for the critical thinking and rigour of the Grade 11 & 12 IB Diploma Programme. Four courses are being offered at the Preparatory level in Grades 9 & 10: English, Math, Science and French. Students enrolled in the program will take all four of these courses plus requirements for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). ​

Applications for the 2022-2023 school year are due to the Main Office at RSS on Friday December 10th, 2021.

Late applicants who successfully complete the application and interview process will be placed on a waiting list and are not guaranteed admission to the program. They will be admitted as spaces become available. Contact the IB Coordinator if you need a late application.

For further information about the Riverside Secondary School Preparatory and I.B. Diploma Programmes, contact Mr. Derek Tomkins, I.B. Coordinator.
