La Mirada High School is a public high school in La Mirada, California. It is a member school of the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District which was built in 1960 as one of three high schools in the district. In 1980, the school merged with Neff High School becoming the only high school in La Mirada.
The school's buildings are arranged in a circular position due to the limited amount of space where it is located. The school also contains a full sized football field and three baseball fields, unlike the two other high schools in the district. It is one of a handful of high school tracks equipped to run the steeplechase, due to the adjacency to Biola University (and the fact that the university does not have such a facility).
