Etobicoke Collegiate Institute (ECI, Etobicoke CI) is a high school at the former centre of Etobicoke in the Islington neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and is overseen by the former Etobicoke Board of Education, which is part of the merged Toronto District School Board. The school's motto is Semper Ad Meliora ("Always Towards the Better").

History[edit]

Etobicoke Collegiate Institute was founded in the fall of 1928 and is one of Toronto's oldest schools and the first and traditionally central school for Etobicoke, having celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2003. The 1928 entrance is an example of Art Deco architecture. The high school has about 1450 students and over 100 teachers. Etobicoke Collegiate Institute is also the second-surviving high school in Etobicoke after the now-defunct Mimico High School (whose building now houses John English Junior Middle School).

E.C.I's traditional rivals are Richview Collegiate Institute, about 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) north. The two schools compete in football and other sports and share a somewhat similar socioeconomic demographic.

The school building has been a shooting location for a few films and commercials, including Mean Girls in 2003.

The Etobicoke Collegiate Institute extracurricular activity list stretches from music to most sports to Model U.N., Reach for the Top and the Robotics Team (2185). Competing in the FIRST robotics competition (FRC), 2007 results include a 23rd-place finish out of 63 teams in GTA championships. 2008 results include a 64th-place finish out of 66 teams in GTA championships. In 2009, the team won both the Waterloo and Greater Toronto Regional Championships. Going into the 2012 season, with a rookie team, finishing 17 out of 36 teams in GTA East Championships; defeated in the quarterfinals and finishing 44 out of 54 teams in the GTA West Championships; defeated in the semi-finals.
