Discover This School

Malcolm X sits on top of one of San Francisco's many hills overlooking the San Francisco Bay, the East Bay and the Bay Bridge. It's an inspiring view, and our school is named for an inspiring leader. These help shape the ideals and vision of our school community. At Malcolm X, we help students become successful life-long learners. We believe students need to develop a range of abilities—thinking, problem solving, creativity, listening skills, and the ability to work with others. We prepare students to advocate for themselves, their families, their school, their community, and their world.

Malcolm X Academy provides a caring and safe learning environment with small class-sizes for our diverse students. Our teachers are devoted to developing our students' intellectual, social, emotional, and physical capacities. We are committed to ensuring that our students have equitable educational outcomes and to enhancing each student's creativity, self-discipline, and ability to act as responsible citizens. Enthusiastic teachers use a variety of teaching methods, hold high expectations for students, and believe that every child can learn.

Our academic program focuses on increasing our student achievement with an emphasis on inspiring a passion for learning. We offer an innovative music program that involves students in music using their bodies, voices, movements, and special instruments. We aim to integrate music throughout our curriculum and the school day. Each classroom has a desktop computer, which is used in curriculum. We encourage our students to do community service projects as part of our social justice learning. We promise to hear and include our students' and families' voices, dreams, and hopes in planning and developing our school culture and academic program. We promise to provide our students with a high quality education that will prepare them to fully participate as citizens of the 21st century.
