About Us

Paul Robeson Malcolm X Academy (PRMX) is the first public school program in the United States to provide an African-Centered curriculum. Offering grades PreK-8, the school was created to provide culturally responsive teaching techniques that prepare students both academically and socially to become productive citizens of the 21st Century. Through the African-Centered pedagogy, students are prioritized as the center of all learning and are educated on the contributions that African Americans made to the world. More than 80% of the school’s graduates matriculate to Cass, King or Renaissance, the district’s top examination high schools.
