Service Learning

Service Learning at Mirman is an opportunity to integrate community engagement opportunities into the broader curriculum from Kindergarten through Upper School 4. These community engagement opportunities include service projects specific to themes assigned within each grade level, larger all-school community projects that engage the entire school, and additional service initiatives developed and led by some of our student leaders. Service Learning is an educational approach where learning objectives can enhance student growth and elicit positive change in the broader community. Our Service Learning program involves commitment from strong parent committees, administrators, faculty and students.
