Malcolm X Academy PreKindergarten

Our Philosophy

We believe in helping students become successful life-long learners. We do this by using the Project Approach, which encourages students to use all of their senses to develop oral, cognitive, writing and reading skills. Our dedicated staff promotes kindergarten readiness by teaching language, movement, the arts, science and math. We also focus on social-emotional learning through community circles, which foster healthy communication, self-advocacy, self-confidence, trust and mutual respect.

Our Staff

Our teachers all have California teaching credentials and are certified in CPR and First Aid. Many of our staff are bilingual in English, Cantonese, Mandarin and Spanish.
