    Austin Peace Academy is the best place for your child to develop morals in a safe and encouraging atmosphere. There is so much opportunity to create sincere relationships with peers and teachers. The school is truly an individualized experience without the “one-size-fits-all” approach of public education. As a recent graduate of Austin Peace Academy who will be attending university in the fall, I feel that APA successfully prepared me to enter a college setting. I would recommend this school to anyone!

    Coming from public school, I got to fully experience both environments when I joined APA in 9th grade. In public school, I was limited to how many advance classes I could take because my GPA didn't qualify me to join the advance classes. This lead me to be in an environment where I was not improving or challenging my self. At APA, they gave me the option of taking advance classes and they encouraged me to challenge myself and take harder courses. Besides the education, this school has dramatically changed me as a person. I came from a school in which I was bullied for being Muslim to a school that taught me to love my religion and to not be afraid of showing it. The teachers at APA also taught me to love and respect those who had limited knowledge about our religion. This motivated me even to write a letter to President Obama that advocated for the end of Islamophobia which he quoted in one of his speeches. Inshallah I plan to use these skills in college next year.
    While academics may be lacking because of limited math and science courses, APA provides students with an environment to actively engage with teachers that genuinely care about their students. The Islamic curriculum is genuine, and while the environment may not be ideal, it's much better than what you'd get elsewhere.
