My son will be graduating this year after attending Mirus five years. He loves the school and it will be sad he will be moving on to college. He will be prepared for college because of Mirus Academy has taught him right. Everyone is awesome - teachers/staff/parents. Very active PTSA. We love you Mirus.

I have taught at private schools for over 11 years, including Second Baptist School and Kinkaid. Mirus has been the best place I have worked for three reasons. First, the environment for the students is very positive and nurturing. Second, the academics are rigorous and help prepare students for college courses. Students are held to a high standard, and the nurturing environment and caring staff help them achieve academic success without the excessive stress common in high pressure school environments. Third, the school teaches students at their level, instead of making students fit into expected "grade-level" courses. Because of this, we have several students who are able to take above grade-level academic courses.
