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 not much of a bad school but it has its ups and downs. I've been at this school for 8 years and we barely have no fights and the students are very respectful. So are the teachers. One thing that I want to see more is the diversity and its very sad to see how segregated we are from the rest of Milwaukee. I would also want to see more of the students take action and less work. HAPA is very challenging but it is overwhelming because of the work. Its very upsetting that I see lots of students suffer because of the amount of unnecessary homework that is given out. Especially when we CANNOT exempt our exams I personally believe its A LOT OF BAGGAGE. In addition, there's not much extra curriculum for students and there's barely any teachers working at HAPA.

I personally believe that Hapa still needs more work but it's good if you're looking for a challenge.
I've been attending HAPA ever since K4 to 8th grade. It's an alright school it is just that they assign many things at once, for example, two essays and a big project. But some teachers there can not teach, and do not care and just move on forward, but some teachers are really loving and help their students with care. Some students over there in my 8th grade are immature and ruin it for the whole grade, so the school has become more strict ever since we had a new administrator. Today in 2019-2020, many teachers have left in the middle school district, about 6 or 7 because of the new rules and the new administrator. They are so poor on teachers that teachers who aren't supposed to be subs are are subs, but they serve alright food, it just sucks sometimes. But I would consider transferring for highschool years. Sports are sometimes dry but they're alright, and yeah.
