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.

Program[edit]

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."[1]

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.

Riverview previously participated in a twinning program with Bokoro Primary School; Ha Bokoro, Lesotho. This twinning was helped by the organization Help Lesotho.
