La Mirada (Spanish for The Look) was the creation of two men, Andrew McNally, a printer and mapmaker from Chicago and his son-in-law Edwin Neff. The city received a lot of attention for the fact that it was going to be completely structured and planned out. Referred to as “the Nation’s completely planned city” during the early 1950s, the city of La Mirada received a lot of attention from the State Fair. Today, the current population is just over 50,000 with the addition of a new subdivision on the eastern portion of the town.
Public education in a majority of La Mirada is governed by the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District, headquartered in neighboring Norwalk. La Mirada has one public secondary school, La Mirada High School.
