From transitional kindergarten to 5th grade, students at Malcolm X School know that it is an exciting place to be! The talented teaching staff provides rigorous instruction in all content areas, enriched by the integration of the visual and performing arts into the curriculum. In 2016 the California Department of Education recognized Malcolm X as a Gold Ribbon School, and the school also received the Title One Academic Achievement Award and the Exemplary Arts Program Award. The entire Malcolm X community is committed to building on this tradition of excellence in academics and in the arts.

Just by walking through the halls of Malcolm X, student art shows you what students are learning about in reading, social studies, and science. Students receive specialized instruction in art, drama, music, and dance, and these disciplines are incorporated into students’ learning throughout the day. At every grade level, children participate in dramatic performances, and showcase their dancing in a dance recital. Students also learn about science, life cycles, and nutrition through the garden class. Teachers at Malcolm X work together as a team, sharing their ideas and techniques to ensure that all students have access to the best possible lessons.

The Malcolm X School motto is “Together We Can” and this collaborative ethic is demonstrated by the way that parents and the school come together to help students learn and grow. Parental involvement is one of the pillars of the school’s success, and parent volunteers support student learning in a variety of ways. Our school is supported by an active PTA chapter, which plans community events and raises funds to support our school programs.

Students at Malcolm X develop an enthusiasm for learning, an appreciation for diversity, and a healthy spirit of inquiry. After school, Malcolm X offers extended learning opportunities that are linked to the academic and arts programs during the day. Students have the opportunity to continue their learning through programs such as LEARNS, BEARS, Project Connect and a variety of PTA-sponsored classes.


“Malcolm X is a learning community which actively fosters the development of the whole child- academically, socially, and artistically.”
– Alexander Hunt, Principal

“I think Malcolm X is amazing because the teachers and staff inspire me to do my best.”
– Isabel, MX 3rd grader
