Located in the Riverbend area within the Seven Oaks School Division, the 51,562 square foot building incorporates the expanded early learning and child care centre into the new K-5 French Immersion school. École Rivière Rouge is certified LEED Gold and incorporates sustainable design features in a visible and educational manner.
This new generation of school serves dual-function as a community centre in the evenings with a design that supports and creates a welcoming environment for parents and community members in recognition of the community’s diversity and cultural traditions. During non-school hours, the classroom wings can be locked off and the school can function as a community space with access to the gymnasiums, library, kitchen and open commons space. The school is designed with active learning in mind and inherent flexibility, which supports a variety of activities and opportunities for learning. The school opened in the Fall of 2016.
