Guidance Counsellors and our Student Success Team will be distributing option sheets to all current students during early February.  To assist with course selection, students are encouraged to speak with their parents, teachers, Guidance Counsellors and our Guidance Services Assistant, Ms. Wilson.  Information about Rideau's course offerings for next year can be found by clicking here.  You will find a link to the online Secondary Course Guide as well as helpful tips and advice.

Rideau Rams save a piece of Ottawa history

Read the full Ottawa Citizen May 23, 2014 article and view the video

"The Rideau High School shop students have since September spent about 1,300 class hours helping an existing group of volunteers, by fashioning wood and metal items, such as hinges, doors and window frames, for the restoration of the 600-series streetcar."

Rideau’s involvement has been a boon to the restoration group, but the restoration project has benefits beyond learning metal- and woodworking skills for the students.
