About Riverside South

Riverside South is a suburban community in the south end of Ottawa. Just southwest of Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, living in this area gives residents superior road connection to the main hub of international transportation in the city. There has been extensive housing development that seems to be growing in the pace of other major suburban communities in the region, such as Barrhaven, Kanata and Orléans here in Riverside South, meaning that there will be many new home builds for home buyers to customize and choose from. It is planned that Riverside South will become a major community with south expansions closer to Manotick and to the east closer to Leitrim.

This neighbourhood is home to the only Ottawa area school with a balanced calendar. Students at L'école élémentaire catholique Bernard-Grandmaître experience a summer vacation that is shortened by three weeks. Those three weeks will then be re-distributed throughout the school year giving the students and teachers a one-week Thanksgiving vacation, an additional week during the week of the Victoria Day holiday, and an additional week during March break. The balanced calendar is theorized to be very beneficial to students and teachers as they have more opportunities to unwind throughout the year. The pilot project ended in 2010, and the school is running permanently on the balanced calendar. The results of the pilot project will help determine if other Ottawa schools will also apply this type of calendar year for students.

Other elementary schools in the area:

  • St. Jerome Catholic School
  • Steve MacLean Public School
  • High school students in the area are served by:
  • Merivale High School
  • South Carleton High School
  • St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School
