Had two kids there and it was an amazing place for both.

Mirman School creates an environment to let our children soar. Our child had struggled to be challenged or engaged at her other school and preschool. We were thrilled when she moved to Mirman and has been given the opportunity to shine. The school takes each child where they are and provides the support and opportunity for the child to reach their potential. Our child really enjoys incorporating art and building stuff into their academic projects and the school has been super supportive. Other kids may incorporate music or other interests and that is OK! Our child is so fulfilled and as a result so very happy. We love the community as well. It is a wonderful mix of families that have a variety of backgrounds and interests. We are grateful to have been able to become part of the Mirman community.
