Principal’s Message

Mdm Choy Photo New.jpegA very warm welcome to River Valley High School!

The River Valley High education and experience is an enriching and exciting one. As a Special Assistance Plan (SAP) and Autonomous Status (AS) school that offers a 6-year Integrated Programme, we provide a holistic education that is academically robust, with a strong focus on character development, strengthening resilience and well-being. During their time with us, our students will develop dispositions, skills, values and knowledge that will help them flourish both in school and in the world beyond school.

Our RV Integrated Programme (RV IP) offers a balanced education curriculum that develops every student's interests and talents across the areas of academics, CCA and leadership. It focuses on nurturing our students’ curiosity, passion and joy for learning, engaging them with interesting and intellectually stimulating lessons and learning experiences. At RVHS, we believe that learning must come alive for our students, where they are continually provided with authentic learning experiences. Students apply critical and innovative thinking through meaningful and purposeful learning projects both within the school as well as in the community. Most notably, our Construct, Integrate, Differentiate (CID) curriculum empowers our secondary students to be empathetic, innovative and critical thinkers who are interested in understanding and solving real-world problems.

We believe strongly that our students have the capacity and potential for leadership and through our various student development programmes, our students will develop into strong leaders with integrity and honour, compassion and kindness, the heart of service and desire to be positive change-makers. These include the Personal Leadership Programme, Values-in-Action Programme, RV Model United Nation (RVMUN) and Youth. Leverage Educate Actuate Develop (Y.LEAD),our annual leadership seminar. Our bicultural learning environment also provides our students with the fluency and skills to understand, appreciate and navigate the different cultural contexts, and regional and global perspectives.

Our RVians embody the 立化 spirit by not just doing well, but also doing good by contributing back to society as leaders in their own right. This is the essence of what it means to be an RVian, a 立化人 – one who is humble to learn yet confident in the self, rooted in tradition and heritage while constantly seeking to innovate, and proactively pursuing their dreams while staying resilient to challenges. The nurturing of the 立化人 is made possible by a strong RV culture – one where there is a strong sense of school belonging, trust and connectedness, and where lifelong friendships are forged. This is an RV home of hope and joy made possible by a caring community of dedicated staff, passionate alumni, and supportive parents and partners.

We look forward to celebrating RV 66 and beyond!
