About Dr. Norman Bethune C.I.
Bethune has a reputation for academic excellence. Students are offered the opportunity to excel in Math, Science, the Arts, Business, and Technology. Courses in the Social Sciences and Languages give students a solid background in the liberal arts and prepare them for post-secondary education.
Newcomers and international students 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, CODING, Drama, Visual Art, Technology and Bethune's Eco-club. Mindfulness strategies are integrated into our grade 9 program so that all students are given strategies for stress management and emotion regulation.
