    As a senior graduating from Austin Peace Academy, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. With wholeheartedly invested teachers, numerous opportunities to shine in interscholastic tournaments like Debate, MIST, and Science Fair, life long relationships with my peers, and an Islamic environment, I can confidently say that APA has given me everything I need and more to succeed. This school has taught me how to embrace my Muslim American identity unapologetically. Apart from the stellar academics APA students display, they are taught to be equally as compassionate and empathetic as well. I will miss the great relationships I’ve built here, but I can’t wait to see APA continue to grow and flourish in the years to come!

    I have been at APA since Pre-k, and it will forever be my second home and family. Everyone knows each other, and no one is ever left out; it's an everlasting bond. The administration and students are always there to help and make you feel welcomed. I'm a senior now, and I will forever cherish the memories I've had at APA. I'll miss the bus rides, MIST, Science Fair competitions, field trips, basketball games, and playground memories. I'm so blessed to have Islamic studies and Quran curriculum that allow me to enhance my knowledge of Islam, which not everyone has that opportunity. Most teachers apply Islam into basic core classes such as Science and Social Studies, which is very meaningful to me. I will miss this school, and nothing will ever top the ALPHA FAM!
    When people would claim a place was their "second home", it was hard to believe that was true. Austin Peace Academy however, proved otherwise. I have attended APA since I was 5 years old alhamdullilah and many of my memories revolve around my childhood which was spent on the forefronts of APA. It was a privilege to be able to attend an Islamic school and be surrounded by diverse students from around the world. These students have become my life-long friends who experience with me my days and are on similar paths as me. I can definitely say that my experience at a public school would have been different to the one at APA. This school has taught me what is necessary to leave a small close-knit community and enter a new journey of my life, college. I can proudly say that after graduating this spring inshallah, I will be able to hold up my head high as a Muslim American thanks to the preparations of APA!
