It's no accident that Mirowitz alumni become leaders in their high schools, congregations and community. As important as intellectual growth is the development of skills that lead to successful leadership.
We give students a voice.
Our students know their opinions are valued, and that Mirowitz is a safe place to share their profound ideas. At Mirowitz, no one believes it’s “uncool” to be smart. Our students know they that their voice has power, and are encouraged to use it to make a difference.
We create a model community in which everyone is respected.
Graduates of Mirowitz choose their friends carefully…for they know the signs of a trustworthy companion. They know what to do when faced with conflict because their Mirowitz teachers have empowered them to be confident problem solvers.
We purposefully create leadership opportunities.
Beginning in third grade, students read Torah and lead a discussion for the whole school. Fourth graders lobby their elected officials. Fifth graders serve as role models for kindergarten buddies. And Middle School students lead school-wide programs and social justice initiatives. They have spoken at Creve Coeur City Council meetings and orchestrated the clean up of abandoned cemeteries and nearby streams.
