Located in the Dundas/Hurontario area of Mississauga, TEAM School provides an academic program for both elementary and secondary students. Students from ages 6 to 14 benefit from small class sizes (8 students) and an individualized academic programme to provide an educational upgrading. As their skills improve, TEAM students realize that they really do have the ability to do well in school. The potential that parents had always seen in their children surfaces and they are ready for the next step in the learning process. Classroom learning is enhanced by more than 35 school clubs and sports teams, as well as by the school-wide musical. Students aged 10 and up enjoy a week at the school's Outdoor Education Centre in Muskoka. TEAM Secondary School (TSS) offers a full curriculum for students at the applied (college-bound) level with a maximum class size of 12 students. There are few schools of its kind in the GTA and none with the benefit of the over 75 extra-curricular activities TSS students enjoy through their sister school Mentor College.
The Our Kids review of TEAM School
Mentor College and the TEAM schools (Tutorial and Educational Assistance in Mississauga) are closely associated. They are overseen by a single administrative body, and they share some facilities, services, and extracurricular programs. The most obvious difference between them is focus: where Mentor College provides a program for students proceeding within the academic stream, and the TEAM providing a program for those proceeding within the applied stream. That said, it's the other differences—including style of instruction, class size, and individual attention—that ultimately distinguish the schools. Many students arrive at TEAM after struggling to meet their true academic potential within a more traditional academic setting. The ideal student is one who will benefit from the added support and attention, with particular attention to numeracy, literacy, and the development of sound learning skills. Due in part to the association with Mentor College and TSS, the facilities are modern and robust, as are student services and transportation.
