School History

     Westminster School District is located 35 miles southeast of Los Angeles in the City of Westminster, California, in beautiful Orange County. Real estate opportunities, self-owned businesses, marketing companies, and a variety of private and public sector organizations enrich the local economy.

     The district serves grades kindergarten through eight in the Westminster area as well as the neighboring communities of Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, and Midway City. The district is comprised of seven K-5 and six K-6 elementary schools, and three middle schools. 

     Iva Meairs Elementary School, named after a former teacher and principal, was built in 1949 and since then has continued to provide students in grades kindergarten through five with a learning environment that is complimentary to its diverse student population. A state preschool was added a few years later. Meairs Elementary School operates on a traditional calendar and has a yearly enrollment of approximately 650-700 students.
