About our Students: 

Mirus classes are small, with an average of 8 students per class.  The students are generally bright, well-behaved, and motivated.  We do not accept students with discipline problems or in need of curriculum modification.  Many have been identified as "Gifted & Talented".  Our classes may be mixed-age (small classes may be combined, and gifted students may be placed according to ability rather than age).    


About our Teachers:

Our teachers love to teach and enjoy being in the classroom!  We seek out teachers who have a love of learning and a gift for teaching, and a four-year college degree is required.  Some Mirus teachers are state certified teachers; others are former professionals in their field without teaching certificates.  We generally attract part-time teachers that do not desire full-time employment, including individuals who have recently retired, are working another part-time job, or are choosing to be home more often with their family.  All instructional materials and lesson plans are provided to teachers before the school year begins.  The role of the teacher is to implement the curriculum, facilitate student learning, grade student assignments, maintain positive student-teacher relationships, and communicate with parents and administrators as needed.  

About our Work Environment:

Our teachers report that Mirus Academy is a fun, upbeat, and nurturing place to work. They appreciate having classroom autonomy and a friendly work environment, and they are especially glad that Mirus does not participate in STAAR testing.  As a result, Mirus Academy experiences high teacher satisfaction and very low teacher turn-over.      


About our Salaries:

Because most Mirus teachers are part-time employees, teacher salary is calculated at an hourly rate that is competitive with Katy ISD salaries.  Payroll taxes are deducted and a W-2 tax form is provided at the end of the year. Benefits (such as health insurance or retirement plans) are not provided.  


Mirus Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, national/ethnic origin, religion, sexuality, gender, gender expression, or any protected group in its admissions policies, educational programs, or employment procedures.
