At Riverside we focus on virtues valued by all cultures: assertiveness, caring, cleanliness, commitment, compassion, confidence, consideration, cooperation, courage, courtesy, creativity, detachment, determination, diligence, enthusiasm, excellence, flexibility, forgiveness, friendliness, generosity, gentleness, helpfulness, honesty, honour, humility, idealism, integrity, joyfulness, justice, kindness, love, loyalty, moderation, modesty, orderliness, patience, peacefulness, perseverance, purposefulness, reliability, respect, responsibility, self-discipline, service, tact, thankfulness, tolerance, trust, trustworthiness, truthfulness, understanding and unity.
Riverside is a school on the move. We have a dynamic team of educators who believe in student success. Creating a positive learning environment is paramount for our school community and the partnership between students, parents, teachers and the community is a longstanding tradition. Student leadership is cultivated through our YMCA exchange program, which features some of our students venturing to remote locations in Canada such as Nunavut, and other programs such as PALS, inter-school sports, a focus on the arts and our various mentorship programs.
