  • School Vision

  • School Mission

    To nurture in students bicultural acumen and moral integrity; to empower students to be thinkers, leaders and achievers with a global perspective.

  • School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos

    Founded in 1956, RVHS has progressed from humble beginnings to become an 'S.I.A.' school: A Special Assistance Plan (SAP) school that offers a single-track 6-year Integrated Programme (2006) with an Autonomous Status. Guided by our school motto, we imbue in our students the values 'Pursuit of Excellence, Perseverance, People-centricity and Proactive-ness'. With these values as the anchor, we seek to equip our students with key attitudes, skills and knowledge that will help realise their potential as Leaders of Distinction for the nation.
