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 2020-2021 school year are due to the Main Office at RSS on Friday December 6th, 2019.

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.

For further information about the Riverside Secondary School Preparatory and I.B. Diploma Programmes, contact I.B. Diploma Programme Coordinator Derek Tomkins at (519)948-4116 Ext 31108 or email
