ECI History
Over 75 years of excellence!
Etobicoke Collegiate Institute began as the result of an increasing amount of students attending middle schools in the region and the lack of nearby high schools. Therefore, a district meeting resulted in an agreement to seek permission to establish a high school district. Approval was granted by the Department of Education and led to the opening of Etobicoke High School in 1928. The school was built on land originally owned by the Montgomery family. It was not until 1948 that it's name was changed to Etobicoke Collegiate Institute.
The school first opened on November 6, 1928 for the public with Mr. A. Wallace as the principal. Recently after the school was renamed to Etobicoke Collegiate Institute, Wallace retired and Mr. J. E. Durrant took up his position. Under the new administration, a new auditorium (along with other additions) was built for the school.
The first student council was formed in the year that Etobicoke High school joined the Toronto District School Board in 1948, and was renamed to Etobicoke Collegiate Institute. Soon after this, many new clubs and student-run organizations followed.
