The school seems to have the friendliest group of children I have ever seen.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree

Our kindergartner has to read 10 minutes for evening. It is no big deal and she is already reading at a 2nd grade level.

My wife and I have been involved with Mirman for over 1 year. Our daughter is in kindergarten and is completing her 1st year. We are thrilled with the school. The Director Dan Vorenberg is one of the most visionary leaders and managers I have ever dealt with. He focuses on the initiatives contained within the schools strategic plan and is an educational expert. At the same time he is warm and approachable and the kids just love him. Our daughter's two teachers are wonderful and focus on ensuring our daughter is challenged in all of her subjects. They are excellent communicators and are also very warm, caring professionals. The school requires the children to submit to IQ testing which is obvious, given its charter, however, all the parents and children are really fun to hang out with. I serve lunch one day per week and have gotten to know the kids and teachers and can assure you it is a wonderful place. I can offer an unqualified recommendation of this institution.

Our son in about to complete his first year at Mirman kindergarten. Both his class teachers and subject teachers are wonderful educators; engaging, dynamic and very accessible: a steady combination of emails and face to face time a ensure a continuity between home and school. Dan Vorenberg is the right person to be at the helm- knowledgeable, articulate, warm and hilarious...he's everything you could ask for and the faculty look to his lead. Our son has made friends with not just his class and other K class but most of the pupils in attendance! Whilst doing weekly volunteer lunch duties, here's my assessment of the students in general. Well mannered and normal kids who just happen to be brilliant in some areas. This school is a wonderful asset to Los Angeles; a benchmark in both execellence and education.

There hasn't been much bullying that I have seen. There will always be kids that aren't nice, or cliques, but I get the sense that it is less pervasive than at other schools.
