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 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 students work in partnership with the neighbouring seniors' homes: Mon Sheong and Tendercare, and with High School #15 in Beijing, China.
