Banting Secondary School is a grade 9-12 comprehensive secondary school with a very strong tradition of excellence in academics, arts, scholarship, sports and community service. We are proud to offer a range of programs to our students, from the French Immersion program to the programs offered to the special students in our Developmental centre. We believe that all destinations after high school have worth and we endeavour to prepare students equally well for college, university and the world of work.
Banting has a very safe and inclusive educational environment where teaching professionals and support staff work hard to maximize every student's potential.
The Banting Superintendent of Schools is Celine Bourbonnais-MacDonald. Our trustee is Joyce Bennett.
Banting has a number of credit bearing specialized Physical Education Programs such as the Banting Hockey Academy Program, Aquatics Gym and Dance. We have a wide range of technology course offerings such as hospitality, transportation, communications, construction and technology design. Banting also has a very strong music program with both instrumental (winds), guitar and an outstanding vocal program.
We are very fortunate to have many volunteers who assist us with coaching sports, driving athletes to competitions and supporting our music program.
At Thames Valley, we believe that assessment and evaluation of student achievement are integral parts of the learning process. Information gathered through assessment and evaluation helps teachers to determine students' strengths and weaknesses in their achievement of the curriculum expectations. It also serves to guide teachers in adapting curriculum and instructional approaches to students' needs and in assessing the overall effectiveness of programs and classroom practices. A variety of methods are used to gauge student progress including: teacher observation, classroom tests, projects and other examples of student work. For more information on our school's provincial assessment results, visit the Education Quality and Accountability Office.
