Heritage Value
The south-east corner of Burnaby featured homes that were scattered in a rural setting. Previously, Riverway East and then Clinton Elementary School had served this neighbourhood, but a more central location was preferable to the School Board to limit bussing of students, so Riverside School was opened in 1953. There were 84 students registered in its first year, but by the late 1970s, enrolments across the City had declined and a number of schools, including Riverside, were closed.
