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 percent of the school’s graduates matriculate to Cass, King or Renaissance, the district’s top examination high schools.
