Bethune Academy - We are a STEM School
Bethune Academy is built on a strong foundation of high expectations for the whole child in a nurturing environment. A special culture has been developed at Bethune Academy which inspires a spirit of tradition, family, celebrations and community service.
Bethune Academy values the unique qualities of each person and believes that everyone has the capacity to learn. We expect all learners to attend and show effort, meet the required curriculum, develop responsibility, citizenship, and leadership.
It is our vision to be a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education by inspiring and preparing generations of critical and creative thinkers to meet the challenges of a global society through innovation and collaboration.
