History

The school was founded in September 1978 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 45 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). 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 most recent play was a take on Disney's Broadway classics, put on by students at the school.(2018) with the upcoming play being rendition of the Sound of Music. (2019)

The building

The school has a theatre (The Riverview Arts Centre),[4] a gymnasium, music rooms, a cafeteria, a library, a swimming pool,[5] a courtyard, two art rooms, three computer labs, a woodshop, automotive lab, a culinary tech room/kitchen, and three science labs.

School culture

The school has its own song. The school's colours are red and white; the mascot is a lion.
