ABSTRACT: 

The Multicultural Advanced Learning Academy

The Multicultural Advanced Learning Academy (MALA) is a school dedicated to giving students a platform to become change agents in their community. MALA will do this
through multicultural education and community partnerships. The MALA design combines traditional African, Latin American and Indigenous culture with modern futuristic designs & technology. The school design is also inspired by the natural reserve and river that it is located next to. Our school is unique because it will promote unity in our community and it will be a place where our student’s cultures are affirmed through the architecture, school design and curriculum. We hope to become a model for what schools should look like in the future. We want to make schools places where all students want to be and learn.
