    Mrs. Juanita Shahijanian, Principal
    John Muir Elementary School

           On behalf of all the staff, I would like to welcome you to John Muir Elementary School where students are provided with nurturing environment and are challenged to reach their maximum potential. Our instructional focus is Critical Thinking and our teachers are dedicated professionals committed to providing our students with quality education that will prepare them for their future.

           I encourage our families to participate in school activities, special occasions and events. Our supportive parent groups (PTA and Foundation) work very hard to bring programs to our school and enrich the learning experiences of all students.

          Together we form a strong partnership to ensure that all students at Muir move forward in their academic endeavor to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, effective communicators and exceptional members of this diverse and ever changing world. I look forward to working with each of you. Please feel free to contact me at (818)241-4848 or email me at My door is always open. Welcome to our Muir-aculous family!
