Rideau High School [Website] is an Ottawa-Carleton District School Board high school in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 815 St. Laurent Boulevard in the east end of the city on the edge of Vanier. It is located next to the Queen Elizabeth elementary school.HistoryThe school opened in 1958 under Principal E. D. Hendry. It was the second of a series of ten high schools built by the school board to cope with rapidly rising attendance and the baby boom. The project generated some controversy as the Collegiate Board presented a plan that included an auditorium, double gym, and a cafeteria. The Ottawa Property Owners association objected to these as expensive and unneeded luxuries, and the mayor Charlotte Whitton agreed. The dispute delayed the construction of the school for some time.In 1971-72, Rideau High School concert and stage bands produced an album.In an October 6, 2009 report by the OCDSB, closure of the school was recommended, with its current students to be redirected to Gloucester High School. and incoming students to be re-directed to Lisgar Collegiate Institute (English) or Glebe Collegiate Institute (French Immersion). The school remained open because OCDSB board members voted December 7, 2009 to reject the recommendation.
