About Mother Teresa Middle School:

Mother Teresa Middle School (MTMS) was incorporated and designated an independent school in Saskatchewan in 2010. It aims to provide an enhanced holistic, Saskatchewan Ministry approved, faith-based middle school education to highly motivated, marginalized students in grades 6 through 8 who live in inner-city Regina.

MTMA seeks to create, “Men and Women for Others” using Jesuit philosophies, models and teaching methods to graduate students who are: loving, religious, intellectually competent, open to growth and committed to doing justice. MTMS is networked with a group of former NativityMiguel Schools in the United States called Urban Faith-Based Coalition of Schools, formed in 2013.

Aboriginal student performance across Canada is significantly below average with only 4% of natives having a university education, one-quarter the rate in mainstream society, and one-third of aboriginal people do not graduate high school, three times the rate for non-aboriginals. The unemployment and poverty rates for aboriginals are five times those in the non-aboriginal community.

MTMS believes it can help break the cycle of poverty amongst its target families through the application of its unique model. MTMS accepts a maximum of 20 students per grade. 2014 enrollment was 20 grade 6 students, 19 grade 7 students and 16 grade 8 students. 68% of total students are aboriginal.
