I have been to APA since kindergarten and I am proud to say that it is an amazing school Alhamdulilah. There is a one-on-one connection between the teachers and students, and they are always willing to help each student individually- if need be. Academically, APA has constantly been improving and will continue to do so inshaAllah. Extracurricular wise, they are providing many more opportunities to the students. These options range from 'science madness' and 'health' class to 'children's literature' and 'art'. The school does its best to meet the needs and interests of every individual student. I can say that my experience here has been pleasant and would, without a doubt, advise parents to bring their children to APA. Especially if you want to focus on their Islamic education, APA is the place to go in Austin.

I've been to APA all my life and its a great school! Great teachers and great staff. It teaches you about Islam very well and you have great connections with all the students. Our school is very competitive and hard. My older siblings already graduated from APA and are in UT.

Austin Peace Academy is a great school to send your child to. The academics are strong and exceed public school levels. Students enjoy the great activities that are provided to them. Many are exposed to opportunities that help them transition and adjust to college life.

APA has always been a homely-type of school. You feel comfortable there [sometimes a bit too much! =)] The teacher don't act stiff and hostile to the students, they are comfortable with them and engage in friendly conversation at the end of class at times :) There hasn't been any cases of serious bullying, because how can you when you're friendly with just about everyone at the school? I'm honestly very, very happy that APA was established in Austin. Now. I haven't gotten to the education part yet so here goes. My daughter has been at this school for a long time. Never once had I heard her complaining about mean kids, or crying over something school-related. But, I have to think about her future. Now, I know APA has been teaching her well. There are out of school competition results that prove that =). But in all honesty, when I compare the high school curriculum to that of other schools, I see what is lacking. As much as I hated to do it, I had to remove her and change schools for high school. So basically, up until middle school, the curriculum is up-top. But I ask you to consider whether or not you will put them in high school, that is all. Still, I support APA all the way.

Austin Peace Academy is good at providing kids with an islamic environment such as teaching Quran, Arabic....etc (Arabic curricula are not organized enough). SO IF YOU WANT AN ISLAMIC ENVIRONMENT, YOUR CHOICE IS APA. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR EXCELLENT ACHIEVEMENT IN SCIENCE AND MATH, YOU MIGHT RETHINK.

My children had studied at Austin Peace Academy for a year, but they did not like the school. when I traveled to another state, I found that my childrens' achievement were very low compared to other students who came from even public schools, so the school should be improved by using modern methods and more facilities .

APA has been home to my two kids for the past 6 years. I have been very happy with the school and with my kids' performance at the school. The small size of the student/faculty body makes it feel like home. Everyone knows everyone, which for me, is a good thing. Nobody is allowed to slip through the cracks. I love that my kids are getting a first rate secular education but more importantly, they are getting this education in an Islamic environment. Having a strong moral character is emphasized at this exemplary Islamic school.

Austin Peace Academy is a quality Islamic school. The leadership and teachers at APA have a passion for education and character-building that you won't find in many schools. The school follows the guidelines set out by the Texas Education Agency, but because it is a private school, teachers are free to teach the curriculum to their group of students' needs, not to the test. Overall, APA provides quality education in both the traditional academic areas as well as Islamic Studies and Arabic; and does so in a loving, character-driven manner.

As a teacher, small class sizes allow me to get to know each child and teach to their interests, draw out their strengths, and challenge them to excel. APA is a place where each child is able to feel valued and nurtured. Teachers are passionate about their subject areas, and they also care about their students and want to see them succeed. In addition to challenging students academically, APA provides an Islamic environment where students and teachers can cultivate their deen and broaden their understanding of Islam. It's truly a blessing for me to work in an environment where Islam is the norm. I am constantly inspired by the character of my students.

Alhamdulillah, Austin is blessed to have a school such as Austin Peace Academy. With a strong Principal and Academic Director, APA has drastically improved in the past five years. It has higher academic standards for students, greater focus on timely and effective intervention, and improvements in methods of instruction with a focus on deeper critical thinking. The staff is dedicated to the success of the students and makes the time to better familiarize themselves with the students and their learning styles. Improvement in the ways of academia can be seen every day at APA.

Best Islamic school in Austin to prepare our kids to become valuable citizens and keep their Muslim-American identity. Islamic, Arabic and Quran studies are side by side along with other academic studies.

APA is a great academic environment as a student and as a teacher. The small class sizes allow me, as a teacher, to give individualized attention to all of my students and to get to know their interests and personal strengths on a much high level. APA is a community where the students feel like family.

Austin Peace Academy (APA) provides friendly, courteous environment for students who want to learn and grow, for educators who love being with kids and teach. I don't have the worry of my kids being bully or bullied, the Principal is very involved with all activities and learning subjects. Each student gets more attention from their teachers due to small classes, teachers know each student by their names.

Wonderful school, safe environment, competitive and encouraging towards higher goals, they have the middle school grades competing in math/science and test them for college. For elementary, if they see that some students are advanced, they will assign higher level school work and homework.
