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.
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.
