About Us

Miriam is the premier educational hub for children with learning differences in the St. Louis area. We empower unique learners by building confidence and a foundation for success at our K-12 school, as well as through our outreach programs. Our students’ challenges often include specific learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, speech/language disorders, anxiety and sensory processing differences.

Why Miriam?

Because not all great minds think alike. We meet students where they are, taking a strengths-based approach to a truly individualized education.

When my son was little, Christmas was a hard time of year for him. The expectations of the holidays, the over stimulation, change of routine, location, and diet made things challenging. There were multiple years that it felt like he lost out on the Christmas joy because he was on sensory overload. Nothing seemed to go well. He fell apart, my husband and I would have whispered fights about what to do while family members would try to help by inserting themselves in the situation or by staying away.

They get small class sizes, a personalized curriculum, special educators, and a welcoming environment.

We knew Miriam was the right place for our daughter right away. She immediately connected with the other students, and was warmly welcomed by the teachers and staff.  It was clear this was the high school for her.

We are finally in an environment where the staff ‘gets it.’ They understand that every child is a unique learner, and they work hard to cater to the needs of each child with individualized learning plans.
