Mesrobian at 50:
From Breaking Ground in 1964 to Groundbreaking in 2015
Mesrobian broke ground in 1964 and opened its doors nearly fifty years ago on Sept. 13, 1965, becoming the first Armenian elementary day-school in the United States. It would eventually grow by one grade level every year, yielding its first high school graduating class in 1975.
The school today includes Nursery School (2-year-olds) through High School (12th Grade) all on the same campus, making it a unique place for students, teachers, and parents to grow.
A full half century has passed since the dream of Mesrobian School became a reality. From Breaking Ground in 1964 to Groundbreaking in 2015, Mesrobian is, in many ways, leading the way in education with its innovative approaches that have caught the attention of the education community – public, private, and independent.
The school’s achievements, spirit and student body are growing at a rapid pace not seen in years. Families across Los Angeles, the Inland Empire, and Orange Counties are converging upon the school as the good news continues to spread. When they arrive at Mesrobian, students and families are offered a safe and loving environment, where Armenian identity is thriving and academic excellence is a priority. Students receive the attention and nurturing they need to be successful in school and in life.
Armenian Mesrobian School, established in 1965, is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and has High School (12th Grade) through Nursery School (2 years old) on the same campus. Mesrobian’s environment offers a unique opportunity for students, teachers, and parents to grow together. The High School curriculum is certified to the University of California. Mesrobian’s ‘Alumni Network and Mentorship Program’ connects students with five decades of alumni who have distinguished themselves in fields as diverse as education, science, business, media and advertising, medicine, music, law, dentistry, chiropractic, public service, politics, engineering, veterinary medicine, psychology, and others.
