Hmong American Peace Academy Reviews

My school, Hmong American Peace Academy, strives for academic excellence in everything single student. The support system, specifically inspirational teachers that my school provides, has been a major contribution in my college readiness. Although HAPA may still be a small school, I hope to see my high school expand. More specifically, I dream to see my school provide more extracurricular activities so that future generation students will be able to grasp opportunities that I never got to experience.

In order to reach out to low-income families and move away from poverty, my school offers a helping hand to all communities within Milwaukee. As our school motto says, Forever Forward... One step at a time.

Hmong American Peace Academy is a K4- 12th grade school that is accessible to all communities especially the Hmong community. This school is one that I grew up in and is particularly good at preparing their students for college life. For example, they give us ACT practice tests, allows us to take drivers ed for only $35 dollars, and gives us an opportunity to work for money through paid internships at hospitals, law firms, car shops and many more. However, although the uniform policy allows us as students to look clean and professional, they can enforce it so that it can be more comfortable for their students. Plus, they should provide more after school activities and internships. While also providing more clubs and sports.
Hmong American Peace Academy is a very unique and culture-valued school. It taught me how to value my culture and identity as a Hmong-America women. Hmong people have only been introduced to education and school systems fewer than 100 years ago. Hmong people did not have schools back then. Instead, we focused on making a living and farming. However, when we started to migrate to America, we were introduced to many wonderful opportunities, one of them being education. Because I was able to grow up in a community that was full of my culture and a strive for education, I have succeeded academically and personally thanks to my school.
