Our Perspective

How we see 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. The facilities are modern and robust, as are student services and transportation.

How TEAM School sees itself

The school administration answered our questions

Who are you, as a school?

"Now in its 42nd year of operation, TEAM School offers an individualized academic programme for students who benefit from the additional support that can be provided in a small class setting. In the TEAM programme (up to 9 students), teachers utilize Direct Instruction strategies and programmes in core subject areas to build skill mastery. The TEAM Programme provides an excellent academic upgrading programme where fundamental skills are consolidated. The TEAM Preparatory (Prep) programme (up to 5 students) provides further support through a smaller class size and individualized programme. Students work toward skill acquisition with emphasis on the integration of personal skills and work habits for individual success and a greater level of independence. The academic programme is augmented by specialty classes in science, physical education, music, and the performing arts."

What do you do differently and uniquely well?

"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."

To your knowledge, why do families choose your school over others?

"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."

What aspect of your school is underappreciated?

"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 school-wide events like the Culture Show and the charity fundraiser Arcadium bring together students of all ages."

What might families find surprising about your school?

"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."
