Banting shares an exact floor plan with its sister school, Montcalm Secondary School.
Sir Frederick Banting Secondary School has produced the Canadian olympic athletes Jason Tunks, three-time Summer olympian discus-thrower, and speed skater Christine Nesbitt, silver-medalist at the 2006 Winter Olympics in the women's team pursuit. Jude St. John, a Grey Cup-winning Canadian football player, also attended Sir Frederick Banting Secondary School as well as NHL players Mike Van Ryn & Steve Rucchin. Alan Coulter played 13 years on the Canadian National Men's Volleyball Team and was captain part of those years.
Banting is a leader in the community and always has big turnouts for such events as United Way programs and the annual S.C.R.O.O.G.E. campaign.
