Lockview High School is a high school located in Fall River, Nova Scotia, serving the areas of Fall River, Beaver Bank, Windsor Junction, Waverley, Wellington and a section of Enfield. It opened in 2000, relieving overcrowding at Charles P. Allen High School in Bedford. The building itself is operated by Scotia Learning Centres and is currently being leased to the Halifax Regional Centre for Education.

The Lockview High team mascot is a blue dragon named Miller. The school is located in Lockview, an area of Fall River along the Shubenacadie Canal. Other schools in the immediate area include Georges P. Vanier Junior High School and Ash Lee Jefferson Elementary School.

Lockview High receives new students primarily from Georges P. Vanier Junior High School in Fall River and Harold T. Barrett Junior High School in Beaver Bank (located approximately 7 minutes from Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia). Since Lockview spans grades nine through twelve, both Georges P. Vanier and Harold T. Barrett no longer have grade nine classes and instead, transfer the students to Lockview. By effectively removing a third of the population from each junior high, Lockview has helped to relieve what was once a severe overpopulation problem in its feeder schools. Lockview has almost 1300 students.
