Martingrove Collegiate Institute (MCI) is a non-semestered public secondary school located on the southeast corner at the intersection of Eglinton Avenue and Martin Grove Road in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is overseen by the Toronto District School Board. The school is home to the gifted program in Etobicoke. Construction of the school began on May 27, 1966, but by the Fall of 1966 it was still not ready to accept students. All Martingrove students were bused to Burnhamthorpe C.I. for the Fall Term where they shared the school in a "split-shift" with the regular Burnhamthorpe students. The Martingrove students had the afternoon shift, the Burnhamthorpe students had the morning shift. This continued until after the Christmas break. The school celebrated its 40th anniversary in June 2006. Martingrove is host to one of the largest Model United Nations in Ontario, which has been running annually for over 26 years. The event draws on hundreds of students across the Toronto District School Board, as well as notable speakers such as Bob Rae.
