About Us

Starting in September 2018, we are excited to become Limestone's first all-French Immersion School!  We offer French Immersion for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6, with entry points at jk, sk, and grade 1.  

In 1986, Rideau became the first French Immersion school for the former Frontenac County Board of Education. Rideau now serves its local community as well as areas east of Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard, North Kingston, and the areas of Glenburnie, Elginburg, Harrowsmith, and Sydenham. The current student population represents the cultural diversity that makes Canada so special. 

Our staff remain focused on moving every student’s learning forward, building a stronger community between school and families, and providing opportunities for every student to thrive at Rideau, whether it is in the classroom, on the playing field, or in one of our many clubs. Rideau continues to demand excellence from staff and students living by our motto "They Can Who Think They Can.”
