In the following sentence, could the word 'school' be used in the meaning of "a group of people distinguished by similar manners, customs, or opinions"?
9. Show loyalty to the school and to the team members.
If so, does it sound natural?

Given "loyalty to the school" is seen as a feature of effective team leaders, I am not sure if your example could work here. On the other hand, I have no idea what the "school" could mean in this context apart from probably some values/ideas/politics shared by a group of people larger than the team - a company maybe. Or could it be synonymous with 'the school of thought'?
I should probably have said that these characteristics were recommended by Pearson as free resources to accompany 'Market Leader' (see Unit 8). Assuming business language is developing faster than dictionaries, I would really appreciate any help with this sentence.

Thanks a lot, Gil.
It's a shame there are inaccuracies spread by Pearson - life would be much easier if they didn't.
I am more than grateful for your assistance.
