Philosophy / Mission

Meeting functional curriculum needs in a junior high school requires team effort , creativity and flexibility. At Mother Teresa Junior High School , we desire that our middle school design fosters the unique educational and social needs of all adolescents through:

  • an academically strong and enriched curriculum;
  • diverse, focused exploratory programs;
  • a program in which the related arts, computer, music and sports provide adequate opportunity for students involvement;
  • a strong support system provided by teachers is strongly encouraged as an essential component of students welfare and an intentional collaborative effort.

These four elements are consistent with a junior high school model that emphasizes meeting individual student needs. We believe further, that this design offers many opportunities for integration of values through strategies that are essential in being creative and dynamic members of society.


General Information

Mother Teresa Junior High School caters to the young adolescent leaving elementary school. While it is true that Mother Teresa Junior High School has shared the facility with a senior high - Laurier Senior High School (LSHS), Mother Teresa is a separate entity. Mother Teresa Junior High School has transportation that is separate from LSHS. We also have a separate entry and departure time (we finish one period before the senior high). Mother Teresa has a separate lunch hour and our students must remain on site for the entire school day, including the lunch hour. We also have our own staff, from Principal and Vice-Principal, to teachers, professional and support staff. We share the cafeteria services, the auditorium, the gym facilities and the library but at different times. At Mother Teresa Junior High School we have the best of both worlds, a "small school" and a "large school" all in one.


Parent Participation

Parents are actively involved and participate in many activities. There is an active P.P.O. and Governing Board. Each group meets monthly for the planning of activities and organization of tasks.
