Miriam empowers unique learners by building confidence and a foundation for success. We accomplish this mission by creating a school community where students thrive both academically and socially. Miriam is committed to four core values:
- Learners First – We believe our student-centered approach defines who we are and must be at the center of planning and decision making
- Commitment to Excellence – We believe in achieving the highest professional standards through reflection and continuous improvement
- Working in Partnership – We believe that collaboration, open communication and a culture of trust are essential to a healthy and successful organization
- Respect for All – We believe in a culture which embraces diversity so that our entire community is valued, heard and understood.
Since 1910, Miriam has worked to improve the quality of life for children with learning disabilities and their families through innovative and comprehensive programs. We are proud of a legacy of service to the St. Louis community that spans more than 100 years.
Miriam School started more than 60 years ago serving elementary students, and has since grown to include a middle school. Miriam Academy now extends this proven educational model to serve area high school students. Miriam Learning Center opened in 2007 to provide specialized services to kids with learning disabilities in other school districts and to offer a robust after school program. Together, Miriam School, Miriam Learning Center and Miriam Academy serve more than 1,200 students annually.
