About Us

Riverside School is in the Oakridge Subdivision area of London. Our student population is approximately 475 students from JK to Grade 8.  We are situated between Oxford Street and Riverside Drive and west of Wonderland Road. Our address is 550 Pinetree Drive which runs north off Riverside Drive, between Hyde Park Road and Wonderland Road. Riverside School was built in 1954 and has had several additions and renovations to bring it to the facility that is present today.

Learning at Riverside 2020

Riverside offers a wide variety of activities for Riverside students and the Oakridge community. In the past, these included: our annual Riverside Corn Roast & Meet the Teacher in September; Terry Fox Run in September; Monthly pizza lunches organized by our Home and School Association; Treats & Treasures Sale fundraiser organized by our Home and School Association; a Halloween event and June staff appreciation event run by our Home and School Association; and a FDK Open House in June to welcome new Full Day Kindergarten students and their parents.

We are fortunate to have both a Home and School Association that focuses on building school community through school-wide events, as well as, a School Council who has recently raised funds to help build a play area for our FDK students.  For all fundraising initiatives through the Riverside Home & School Association, please go to the link below:

Measures of Student Achievement and Success At Thames Valley, we believe that assessment and evaluation of student achievement are integral parts of the learning process. Information gathered through assessment and evaluation helps teachers to determine students' strengths and areas of need in their achievement of the curriculum expectations. It also serves to guide teachers in adapting curriculum and instructional approaches to students' needs and in assessing the overall effectiveness of programs and classroom practices. A variety of methods are used to gauge student progress including: teacher observation, problem solving, collaborative inquiry, peer and self-assessment and reviewing examples of student work. For more information on our school's provincial assessment results, visit the Education Quality and Accountability Office.
