Riverview High School, or simply RHS, is a public high school in Riverview, New Brunswick, Canada. It is part of the province's Anglophone East School District, offering education to students from grade nine to twelve. As of 2014 the school holds roughly 1,800 students through grade nine and twelve. It is the only high school in Riverview, and one of four Anglophone high schools in Greater Moncton.
The school was founded in September 1962 starting with two Grade 10 classes. Prior to that date Grades 10 through 12 from the then community of Riverview Heights attended Moncton High School. From its beginnings until 1978, the high school was located at 92 Devere Road, now the site of Riverview Middle School.
In 1978 a new facility was opened on an 18-hectare site about two kilometres west of the old school (which became Riverview Middle School and was closed down due to a rat problem in late 2013). The new school also has a swimming pool, a feature the old school did not possess. In 2006 the auditorium began to operate independently for community use and plays host to many different shows each year, including a Stereos/The Midway State concert in November 2009.
The school has a full size theater (The Riverview Arts Centre), a double gym (with retractable basketball nets, and a divider that drops from the ceiling), a weight room, two music rooms, a cafeteria, a library, a swimming pool (Pat Crossman Memorial Aquatic Centre), a courtyard, two art rooms, several computer labs, a woodshop, a culinary tech room/kitchen, and six science labs.
