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.
The atmosphere throughout the school still reflects this feeling of love and respect for the children on the part of the administration, faculty, and staff.
Today, the school is nestled atop a winding stretch of Los Angeles' Mulholland Drive. Mirman continues to distinguish itself as one of the few schools in the country devoted to the education of highly gifted children.
"Today, you and I are deciding how our tomorrow will be. Let us all move toward a tomorrow in which the richest resources of our nation—our gifted and talented children—are challenged and perfected. In the process, we will perfect and fulfill ourselves."
—Dr. Norman & Beverly Mirman 25th Anniversary Meridian, 1987
