Malcolm X Elementary School is located at 1500 Mississippi Avenue SE, a short walk from the Congress Heights Metro Station on the Green Line. We serve approximately 250 students in grades PK3, PK4, and kindergarten through fifth grade. In addition to rigorous courses in mathematics and language arts, our students enjoy special courses in the arts, music, Spanish, and media literacy.
Our mission is to join families and the community to assist our students in developing skills to become independent, self-sufficient adults who will succeed and contribute responsibly in a global community. We will teach our children these skills through academics and by emulating the principles that will be essential to their success: self-respect, respect for others, perseverance, and compassion.
