The Riverview Park community is home to a mix of schools and daycares, including public, catholic and private schools as well as several established daycare options for your kids. Hillcrest High School is not technically within the boundaries of Riverview Park. It is included here as Riverview Park is within the Hillcrest catchment area and the school is just across Smyth Road from the community.
