Welcome From Principal

As-salaam-u-‘alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuh

Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year! Welcome to Peace Academy!  For more than 25 years, our independent, preschool through twelfth grade college preparatory school has been serving the families of Tulsa and beyond with a noble vision of building generations of academically excellent Muslim-American citizens.

We seek to provide the tools to promote lifelong learning and an Islamic environment that inspires noble character and righteous leadership. We are blessed to have a diverse faculty from around the world who are not only knowledgeable about their respective disciplines, but who also model upright moral character, and who are passionate about working with students.  Our small class sizes help students and teachers to develop strong relationships that support their learning.

Parents, please make time to:

  • Ask your student(s) specific questions about their time at school.  For example, “What was the most interesting thing you did in math class today?”, “Tell me about your science experiment?” or “Do you need help reviewing your Quran assignment?”
  • Use our online grading database early and often.  The Parent Portal will give you relevant information regarding your child’s performance on their homework, a test or quiz as well as their attendance. Your interest and concern in their school progress will motivate them to do their best.
  • Communicate with your child’s teachers and staff members to establish a successful home/school connection.

Parents, please help us by reinforcing an Islamic environment at home, and by supporting your students to get all the help they need to maximize their performance. With your help, Peace Academy will continue to be a school community in which every person feels respected, valued, and is encouraged and challenged to achieve at the highest levels (inshallah).  I also strongly encourage you to be active in our PTO (parent teacher organization).  Our partnership is essential for our continued success. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at principal@patulsa.org) and/or make an appointment with me through the office staff.

We look forward to working with you to build committed balanced Muslims, knowledgeable scholars, contributing citizens, and community builders (God-willing).
