About RHS

Riverdale High School (RHS) is an English language secondary school located in Pierrefonds, Quebec.  It was founded in 1964 and is part of the Lester B. Pearson School Board, where it is designated a "community school".

We are the Home of the Spartans athletic teams, which consist of basketball, rugby, soccer, volleyball, track and field, and swim teams. The school also has a wide variety of community-based clubs and organizations.

The school RHS logo visible to the right and the school slogan "Reach Higher and Succeed" (RHS) were adopted during the 1988/1989 school year when they were chosen in a school-wide contest. Both were submitted by students at the time. The school's official colours used to be Blue (a dark navy blue) and Grey, with the school paper having the matching name "Blue & Grey", but they were changed to match the uniforms which were adopted in 1993, whose colours (green, black & white) were also selected by the student body. Before this the school had no uniform, only a dress code which included "No jeans" and "No clothes with holes".

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.
