Woman and three kids

Sue McCalister, Grandparent of 3 Malcolm X Academy students

“We chose this school among other schools because we loved that it was small and everybody knows each other. The teachers really get involved with the kids and give them extra attention.”

Get Involved

Family participation and interaction is important to creating a school community at Malcolm X. We encourage all parents and families to get involved by joining one of our many parent organizations:

  • Parent Volunteer Program

  • School Site Council (SSC)

  • Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
