    Welcome back students!

    At Malabar, our goal is to create deep learners. We have adopted STEAM in order to update our teaching practices, moving away from traditional strategies and towards hands-on investigation-based work. Thank you to all Malabar families for supporting our new Vision.

    What is 21st Century education?


    It is a teaching philosophy that focuses on preparing students for the careers that are currently in demand as well as the careers that are emerging in our ever-changing world. To begin their learning journey, our students will engage in projects and activities that develop critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, and citizenship.

    Why doesn't it snow in los angeles anymore?

    In January of 1949, a 3-day snow storm covered all of Los Angeles and caused huge problems for the city. Freeways closed, crops froze, and cars were stuck in over a foot of snow. Since that storm, Los Angeles has become an average of 5 degrees warmer, including July 6th, 2018 when the temperature in Los Angeles broke records and reached 117 degrees! Perhaps you can help us reverse this warming and bring SNOW back to the City of Angels.

    A family of crustaceans have invaded Malabar!

    Did you know that crayfish are omnivores? They eat plants, animals, and decaying organisms.

    Can you see the eggs? This crayfish female is ready to release over 100 hatchlings!

    Why do we STEAM?

    Creative thinkers are going to be the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, and inventors.


    Malabar students, this could be a career for you!
