Welcome to Riverdale online!
Considered by many the West Island's best-kept secret, Riverdale High School is committed to the pursuit of academic excellence and the character growth of its students. We encourage students to pursue interests outside of the classroom, and to experience the myriad of athletic, cultural or volunteer activities our school offers.

A true melting-pot in a multicultural city, Riverdale plays host to dozens of nationalities and spoken-languages. Our school believes in the importance of having close ties to the immediate community, while encouraging a global vision by associating and interacting with schools in China, England and beyond.

Often called one of the most welcoming environments students, staff and visitors have experienced, we hope to show you why Riverdale is an excellent destination for your child's secondary education.
Riverdale's IB Program
In June 2012, Riverdale was granted fully-accredited IB Middle Years Programme status. As an IBMYP candidate school, our aim is to develop globally minded students. Our vision is to inspire students in their journey toward independent, critical thought and responsible action - creating effective leaders with a global perspective and encouraging our students to be life-long learners in a global community.

Riverdale High School hosts the most international students in the Lester B. Pearson School Board. As well, we have over 50 different nationalities represented at our school. With such a culturally diverse population, we saw the adoption of the Internation Baccalaureate as a natural fit for Riverdale. For more information, please click here
