Welcome to Shabazz Public School Academy

El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz Academy is Lansing’s premier public charter school academy. Admission through the academy is free and open to all students in the greater Lansing, Michigan community. Named in honor of Malcolm X, world renown human rights advocate and Lansing resident, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz Public School Academy focuses on providing students an education that advocates and demonstrates excellence, while at the same time thoroughly familiarizing them with their cultural and historical past.

At El-Shabazz, we believe that all students can achieve at high levels if they are properly taught and supported (Click here to see our Eight Pillars of Success). Furthermore, we believe that all students are entitled to a quality basic education. Hence, our school’s curriculum stresses high achievement in the fundamentals of mathematics, reading, speaking, writing, and science. These disciplines, in our opinion, can be mastered by all students, but not at the expense of not being knowledgeable about their heritage, culture, or history. Consequently, we embrace an Afro-Centric approach to all of our student-centered initiatives.

Shabazz Public School Academy is Lansing’s One Stop Education Center offering a Kindergarten through 6th grade program and extended day tutoring.You are cordially invited to become a part of Shabazz Public School Academy’s extended family. For enrollment information call our office at (517) 267-8474.


School’s Daily Affirmation

 TODAY WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! IT WILL BE A DAY WHERE I HONOR MY ANCESTORS AND MY PARENTS BY DOING EXCELLENT WORK. IT WILL BE A DAY OF PEACE WHILE I PERFORM ALL OF MY ASSIGNMENTS WITHOUT CAUSING CONFUSION IN MY CLASSROOM OR ON THE SCHOOL CAMPUS. IT WILL ALSO BE A DAY WHERE I RECOGNIZE THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF ALL PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF AFRICAN DESCENT. BUT ABOVE ALL, IT WILL BE A DAY WHERE I HONOR MYSELF BY STAYING FOCUSED ON MY DREAM OF BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL PERSON РBY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!
