Riverview Alternative School also known as Riverview Public School is an alternative education elementary school in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. It is located in the Riverview neighbourhood of Ottawa, Canada.
As an alternative school, Riverview claims to have "a balance between teacher-directed and student-directed learning. Often a theme approach is used to provide an integrated and activity-centered curriculum.
The alternative program provides each child the opportunity to become aware of his/her preferred learning style through a wide variety of learning activities and experiences. Hands on activities for discovery learning complement printed material and texts."
Riverview has a small population of students (140) and has survived various threats of closure. It has however, remained open.
The school serves children from Kindergarten until Grade 6.
