RVS is an inclusive and dual stream private school, offering exceptional academic and social education for pre-school and elementary children. All families interested in RVS are asked to take a tour of our school and meet our Head of School to discuss programs, child requirements and commence the enrolment process.

Tours are best scheduled during school hours, to allow parents to observe programs and the calibre of instruction and educational opportunities offered. RVS prides itself on the quality of education and life learning, as well as the inclusive community it fosters within its doors and the greater community.

Please contact our Admissions Officer at admissions@rivervalleyschool.ca or (403) 246-2275 x225 to make an appointment to visit River Valley School.

  •  A $1000 application fee for International students (non-refundable)

Acceptance into Montessori and Progressive programs at RVS is based on several factors, the most important of which is the match of the family’s and school’s education goals for each child and the ability to serve each child’s needs. This is evaluated through visits to the School, phone conversations and available school records.

RVS does not have formal academic testing; however, evaluation, classroom visits and

conversations with teachers and the School Administration will ensure a fit for both the family and the school.

A family is notified of acceptance either by telephone or email.
