Employer Description
About Mirman 

Mirman School opened its doors to educate highly 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. 

Mirman’s Mission 

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.


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-fill water stations throughout campus, in addition to energy efficient office spaces, combine to create a greener community. 

Our 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. 

Diversity Mission Statement

Statement of Inclusivity

We are committed to building a connected community that embraces multiple perspectives and cultural competency to strengthen gifted education and growth in the whole child. At Mirman, we strive to integrate inclusivity in our curriculum, school culture, and institutional identity. We honor and support a community built on diversity of thought, experiences, and identities to best engage our students in the academic, sociocultural, and complex world in which we learn and live.

Belonging. Dignity. Justice.

Our IE work is embedded in everything we do, and guided by our Office of Equity, Inclusion and Community; the Board Committee on Inclusivity; and the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) Committee of Faculty and Staff. Our work is guided by Mirman's mission, philosophy of education, core values, and the overarching question: "What are the different ways we honor our individual and shared strengths in service to our local and global communities?"

IE at Mirman bridges three areas of school life: curriculum and instruction, culture and climate, and institutional identity. Guided by the Board of Trustees' vision and strategic plan, students, families, and educators partner together to teach, learn, and practice inclusivity and equity in our connected community.

Our IE work includes but is not limited to affinity groups, community-wide professional development, service learning, and campus activities.
