Principal's Message

Welcome to Rideau District High School – a tremendously close-knit environment with an enveloping and universal culture of care, wellness, and compassion, for our students and community. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you back for the 2023-2024 school year!  Lions – we’re looking forward to seeing you.  For students, school starts on Tuesday, September 5th, 8:00am.

It is our mission to prepare all students for a successful life, and we’re proud to offer a wide variety of programs and extra-curricular activities.  Rideau District High School offers programs to support all destinations: work, apprenticeship, college and university. Our programs include FOUR Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) Programs, Extended French, Co-Op Education, integrated technology, as well as academic, applied and essential courses. 

We offer a variety of activities outside of the classroom that stimulate the mind, body, and heart of our students. Opportunities include drama productions, music, intramurals, a range of clubs are available to all students, and our many championship-winning sports teams. We encourage all students to become involved.

We believe that ALL students can learn. Our small school environment and culture of care allows us to take a differentiated, proactive approach to student success, which has assisted us in achieving an exemplary credit attainment rate and graduation rate.

I am proud of our staff, students and school.  Along with our Vice Principal, Mr. Matt Robinson, and all staff, we look forward to welcoming everyone into “The Lion’s Den” here at Rideau for the 2023-2024 school year!
