About Mirman School
Mirman School opened its doors to educate gifted children in 1962. Motivated by a deep love and concern for these children, Dr. and Mrs. Norman J. Mirman began the school with nine pioneering students in their West Los Angeles home. Today, with a newly expanded campus serving all dimensions of childhood, Mirman School is a thriving and diverse community home to 330 students. Mirman continues to distinguish itself as one of the few schools in the country devoted to the education of highly gifted children, particularly serving all dimensions of childhood — academic, artistic, kinesthetic, and more.
We cultivate the boundless potential of highly gifted children, nurture their passions and talents, and develop a diverse community of creative and constructive lifelong learners.
Our 6 acre campus is home to both Lower and Upper Schools, beautiful outdoor community spaces including regulation-size athletic fields and basketball courts, handball and Ga-Ga courts, innovative play yards, and office and classroom spaces. A faculty lounge creates a warm convivial space for gathering, collaborating, and all the coffee one could want. Recycling initiatives and fast-fi...ll water stations throughout campus, in addition to energy efficient office spaces, combine to create a greener community.
Mirman is made up of students and their families, a dedicated and passionate Parent Service League, and a Board of Trustees made up of community leaders. In the Lower School, lead teachers are supported by part-time Assistant Teachers, while Upper School teachers specialize in disciplines such as English, science, Latin, Mandarin, History, etc. Dynamic specialists in science, STEM, technology, math, art, music, choir, theatre and more round out the fabric of our faculty. Mirman is also home to a collegial and collaborative group of administrators who work to facilitate the ideal teaching and learning environment.
