Discover This School

Malcolm X Academy sits on top of a hill in the heart of the Bayview, where we have been serving the community for over 60 years. Our school's namesake, Malcolm X, serves as the foundation of our school community’s ideals and vision -- to inspire students to be lifelong learners and advocates for themselves, their families, their community and their world.

We believe students need to develop a range of abilities—thinking, problem solving, creativity, listening skills, and the ability to work with others--to be successful in the 21st century. Our teachers are devoted to ensuring that our students have equitable educational outcomes and to enhancing each student's creativity, self-discipline, and citizenship. Enthusiastic teachers use a variety of teaching methods and believe that every child can learn.

By working closely with families, creating positive adult-student mentorships, bringing in community resources, focusing on the unique needs of each student, and holding each student to high expectations, our learning community continues to thrive every day.
