About Malcolm X

We Educate the Whole Child

At Malcolm X Elementary, we are family and a neighborhood school, rooted in the history and strength of our community. We celebrate students of all backgrounds--making sure they see their heritages reflected. We are proud that in our most recent year of testing, we had excellent growth in math scores compared to schools across the state. Our goal is to instill a lifelong love of learning in every student. Join the Malcolm X family next school year.
