Aceh’s protracted conflict ended with the memorandum of understanding between the Indonesian Government and the Free Aceh Movement. Peace education is required to create a culture of peace among young generations, to bring to Aceh a sustainable positive peace phase and prevent relapse into civil war. This study aims to analyse the peace education model implemented in public senior high schools of East Aceh. The research used a qualitative approach, in which data was collected by in-depth interviews and studies of the document. Then, the data was analysed by an interactive analysis model that involves data reduction, data display, and verification and conclusion. The results reveal that peace education has been implemented in two models in East Aceh. Some schools have taught peace education as a particular subject, and some others have integrated it into existing subjects. However, trained teachers of peace education perceive that teaching peace education as a particular subject is more effective than integrating it into others
