Our course offerings include:  Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) in technology, physical education, performing arts, and broadcasting; one of the most comprehensive technology programs in Thames Valley; Native Studies, including the Martin Aboriginal Educational Initiative - we're one of a handful of schools in Canada fortunate enough to have been selected; Bealart, a nationally renowned specialty art program; English as a Second Language; dance, musical theatre, drama - and the list goes on.  We also provide a full range of compulsory subjects, including AP courses.   Outside the classroom, Beal's athletic teams compete in a wide range of sports and we boast about having more than 50 extracurricular clubs and activities.  There's something for everyone at Beal - we think we're the best secondary school in Thames Valley

Our History

In 1911, Herbert Benson Beal recognized the need for a program of technical education that would reflect the emerging needs of society. The London Industrial School opened its doors in 1912 and began offering both day and night programs. Demand was growing rapidly and in 1918, students began moving to a new school building near Dundas and William Streets. After many additions and increased program demands, it was decided to completely renovate Beal so that it could continue to be a leader in the field of education.

After much re-building, the official opening of "The New Beal" took place in June 1999. Beal now offers approximately 225 courses and 18 Cooperative Education courses.
