École Secondaire Robert A. McMath Secondary School is a high school located on Garry Street in the Steveston neighbourhood of Richmond, British Columbia. The school opened in 1998 and serves grades 8 to 12. It is a bilingual school providing a French immersion program.

The school is fed into by the nearby elementary schools of Lord Byng, Westwind, Steves, Diefenbaker, and Homma Elementary School as well as all French immersion students from 15 other elementary schools in western Richmond.

As of the 2017 school year, the current principal is Mrs. J. McFadyen and the vice-principals are Mr. M.Charlton and Ms. A.Goulas. The school's sports teams are all called the McMath Wildcats. R.A McMath Secondary became the focus of media attention and controversy in 2000 when the principal ruled the wearing of bandanas to be inappropriate, and against the dress code, citing an allusion to popular gang fashion at the time. The school became the focus of media attention again in May 2017 when a male youth was arrested after posting a school shooting threat targeted towards specific groups at the school online, causing the school to enter a day-long lockdown. Also Pride of mcmath cabinet was disrupted by new principal and filled up with his son and daughter. [1]
