About Our School

Rockcliffe Park Public School is a JK-6, dual track school that opened its doors in 1922. The name reflects the adjacent neighbourhood, a beautiful Ottawa suburb rich in history and character, and also home to a number of embassies and diplomatic families from all over the globe. The staff at RPPS are committed to maintaining a safe and caring community of learners in partnership with the greater school community to help our students become strong, contributing citizens of the world.

Our library is a newly-renovated and vibrant learning space that is reflective of current teaching practices. It features an open concept that encourages curiosity, supports experiential activities with a makerspace, and offers flexible seating in order to accommodate a wide range of learning experiences. Further school upgrades will take place when we convert the decommissioned onsite police station into two new classrooms, additional office space, a literacy room and a conference room.
