Rick Hansen Secondary School (RHSS) is a public high school located in the south-eastern edge of Streetsville, a community in Mississauga, Ontario. Rick Hansen is the home to graduates from Fallingbrook Middle School, Fairwind Senior Public School, and Hazel McCallion Senior Public School.

Nearly 2,000 students attend this school.
Many athletic programs are present in the school, and the name of the mascot is Stormy. Their volleyball team has produced powerhouse teams within the past 10 year. Their elaborate technology program allows students to major in manufacturing- and robotics-related courses. They also have two successful FIRST Robotics teams, known as THEORY6 and The Big Bang, as well as many smaller, but still successful, VEX Robotics teams.
