How we see TEAM School
How TEAM School sees itself
"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 with Mentor College."
"TEAM School addresses the needs of a variety of students: students who require academic upgrading, students who benefit from small class sizes and extra teacher support, and students who have had an educational assessment indicating a learning challenge.
Co-curricular trips to the school's Outdoor Education Centre in Muskoka enhance in-class learning in the upper grades. Extracurricular activities abound, and include learning opportunities in sports, music, drama and special-interest clubs."
"TEAM School boasts superior facilities, some of which are shared with Mentor College. Our transportation system, also shared with Mentor College, covers all areas of Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, and Etobicoke."
"Families are pleased when they discover how long TEAM School has been in existence. For over 40 years, TEAM has prepared students for success by providing a solid academic foundation. Parents are also reassured by the fact that all of the members of our leadership team - from director Mr. Macdonald to the principals - were at one time teachers in a TEAM classroom."
"We believe that the TEAM extracurricular program offers a club or team for just about every interest. There are clubs, teams, and special events at TEAM that have been running for decades. Many of these groups were initiated by a student or staff member's passion and knowledge in a specific area. Most clubs, teams, and events are grade/division-specific and schoolwide events like the Culture Show and the charity Fashion Show bring together students of all ages."
"With a history of over 40 years, Mentor College has shaped the lives of generations of students by preparing them for success in life. . Students from Grades 5 to 8 enjoy a week-long stay at our Outdoor Recreation Centre in Muskoka. The maximum class size is 8 (Elementary) and 12 (HS) . TEAM School is a part of the Mentor/TEAM family of schools. Our transportation system, also shared with Mentor College, covers all areas of Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, and Etobicoke."

Most big schools provide your extroverted child with plenty of social opportunities and the ability to interact with different peer groups with a wide range of personalities, interests, values, etc. A larger student population and more extracurriculars—including activities like team sports, arts programs, and debate—will give them a broader scope of opportunities to participate in events that scratch their interpersonal itch. “This may also give them the opportunity to hone certain skills,” say Ann and Karen Wolff of Wolff Educational Services. “For instance, they might run for student council to develop leadership and public speaking skills and learn to be a voice for other students.”
Make sure any prospective school, no matter what size, provides the right social environment to help your child feel at home, make friends, and develop confidence. This is especially important at big schools, which are sometimes more socially overwhelming and challenging for an introvert to find their bearings in. Of course, “Because larger schools usually have a more diverse student population, introverted kids are more likely to find a small group of people like them, a peer group they can relate to and find acceptance from,” says Dona Matthews, Toronto-based education consultant and co-author (with Joanne Foster) of Beyond Intelligence.
Bigger schools often have a broader scope of extracurricular activities, which is another way to help your child meet the right group of friends. “This may also give them the opportunity to develop certain skills,” say Ann and Karen Wolff of Wolff Educational Services. “For instance, they might run for student council to develop leadership and public speaking skills and learn to be a voice for other students. Remember, though, each child is different—so what works for one may not work for another.”
