Mission & Philosophy


Mother Teresa Middle School (MTMS) aims to break the cycle of poverty among economically disadvantaged youth through the application of its innovative education model.


To graduate young men and women of character, with intellect sufficient enough to ensure that they become post-secondary graduates and more importantly, role models and leaders in their communities.


MTMS is built on the Jesuit ideal of ‘cura personalis’, which means care for the whole person. This includes tending to students’ intellectual, social, physical, spiritual and emotional needs.

Importance of living life in the service of others

MTMS seeks to create, “Men and Women for Others”, using Jesuit philosophies, models and teaching methods to graduate students who are: 

Loving, Spiritually Alive, Intellectually Competent, Open to Growth and Committed to Doing Justice.
