Dr Norman Bethune Collegiate Institute


Bethune has a reputation for academic excellence. Students are offered the opportunity to excel in Math, Science, the Arts, Business, Computer Science and Technology.  Courses in the Social Sciences and English give students a solid background in the liberal arts and prepare them for post-secondary education. Newcomers are supported in ESL classes and in programs outside the classroom that ensure they are involved in the school community.  Bethune maintains close relationships with elementary schools through mentoring programs in Music, Robotics, Drama, Visual Art, Technology and Bethune's Eco-club.  Bethune also offers a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) in Business.

Bethune CI was established in 1979 and was named after the great Canadian physician, Dr. Norman Bethune.  Dr. Bethune dedicated his life to helping others around the world and in particular, in China.
