A new school year has just begun, and children and teens are excited and nervous as they find out what the year has in store for them. But if you’re planning to locate to Bethany in the future you should have nothing to be nervous about if you have school age children.

Rolling Hills Public School, Bethany Ontario

Most of Bethany’s public school students attend schools which are part of the Trillium Lakelands District School Board. In total the TLDSB manages 48 schools – 41 elementary and 7 secondary – and 7 Adult Education and Training Centres for persons looking to upgrade their skills or learn something new. However, most students in Bethany attend 1 of 3 public schools: grades Junior Kindergarten to 4 attend Grandview Public School, grades 5 – 8 attend Rolling Hills Public School, and secondary students are bussed to I.E. Weldon Secondary School in Lindsay, just outside of Bethany.

Grandview PS “is a supportive and respectful partnership connecting students, staff, families, and the community.” In the mid-1990s the opening of Rolling Hills PS allowed Grandview to limit its grades to JK through 4 in order to reduce class sizes and ensure children reach their fullest potential before heading down the road to Rolling Hills. The school’s aim is that all students gain “the knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to be critical thinkers as well as caring members of our society.”

Rolling Hills PS was first opened in 1996 and emphasizes service learning and the incorporation of social justice issues into the curriculum. This “leads to the development of students who are well rounded and connected to the challenges and joys of our world.” No wonder the school’s motto is “Making a Difference…one student at a time.”

I.E. Weldon SS was named for Isaac Ernst Weldon (1873-1962), a prominent lawyer who was raised in Lindsay and donated one million dollars to the local school board with the interest generated to be divided among graduating students in the county who were advancing to post-secondary education. Today I.E. Weldon SS is dedicated to an educational program where all students can learn in a safe environment that encourages, challenges, and enables individuals to realize their full potential. Students are taught the skills necessary for them to become life-long learners and succeed in a global and technological society.
