General School Description

Located 3 kilometers east of London in Dorchester, Ontario, River Heights serves a mix of rural and urban students. The school property is surrounded by the Dorchester Community Park providing opportuntites for access to an ice arena, swimming pool, cross country track, baseball diamond and soccer field. River Heights was build in 1956, originally as a two-room school for Grades 1 through 8. In 1960 it was expanded to four rooms. In 1966 more rooms and a gymnasium were added completing the main building as we see it today. Over the years portables have been added as the school population has grown. Kindergarten was introduced in 1968. In 1985, when Willowdale Public School was closed, River Heights became a Junior Elementary School (Kindergarten through Grade 4) while Northdale Central became a Senior Elementary School (Grades 5 through 8). In 2001, the Grade four group moved to Northdale allowing River Heights to focus on the Early Years and Primary Grades.

The school colours are red and white and the school mascot is the Red Hawk.

River Heights welcomes volunteers and is pleased to have volunteers yearly who offer assistance in a wide range of activities.

The school is a practice teaching site for the UWO Faculty of Education. River Heights participates in Co-op Education with Lord Dorchester Secondary School.
