    This is the first year my children are attending Antioch. The first day of school they sent my son to the bus riders instead of car pool lane. The following day i had to take my children to an appointment the front office lady came off rude she portrayed as if though i was being an inconvenience to her . My children attended Riverside for the past 2 years never a complaint everyone is very polite and ready to help. This only being the first week lets see how it pans out.

    No communication until a big issue arises! Problems? answer is to be tested and medicated. I have lived in almost every state in the US and have never seen what I have in the past year at this school.

    School is great as long as your kid does not have any learning issues. We have had audiologist speech therapist and her physiologist write letters to the school saying our child had a speech and comprehension issues and we were basically told nothing could be done about it until she was already failing. It didn't matter what the opinion was of the professionals the teachers and the IEP lady knew more then they did and said there was no problem with our daughter at all. This has been on on going battle for the last 2 years.

    My child has been at this school for 3 years and has struggled the whole time! When asked for extra help every time we were turned down and told that he was tested for a special IEP program but was not eligible! It was also suggested to us numerous times to maybe consider medicating him to help focus well that didn't work either! If your child has a hard time testing I do not recommend this school! Several others in the area I hear are better equipped with helping children who need that extra step! The principal and staff will also make it clear that they don't have special programs because they are not a Title 1 school!!! So glad to be leaving!!!!

    My son is in 1st grade and he loves Antioch! His teacher and the office staff are wonderful!

    Teachers and staff are professional and courteous. However students are taught the test and free thinking is NOT encouraged. This school may rate as an A+ but this does not mean that students are being taught to think just take tests.

    This is very much a teach to the test school so if you are looking for your child to be educated to be a factory worker you have come to the right place.

    My oldest daughter attended Antioch 3rd - 5th grade. We loved it. We left Okaloosa county for a couple of years and during that time my second daughter had to go to other elementary schools. I never found another school that I thought was as good as Antioch. I don't believe that any school is perfect but I think Antioch is close enough. The principal is great and stays on top of everything. And majority of teachers are wonderful!

    I had an initially bad experience when my daughter started at this school with a teacher that seems to be the exception to the rest she politely told me that my child was not on grade level and that she didn't know why I had put her there. Well after meeting after meeting with the principal guidance counselor and the teacher it was discovered that she my daughter had an issue with staying on task so her initial placement test were given to her again in a more structured setting and she pretty muched aced them. That particular teacher is still there and I am thankful that they saw fit to move my child to a different teachers class and helped her to excell...and all the remainder have been nothing short of GREAT!!! I feel that this is an awesome school that provides a safe and well rounded learning environment.

    Be careful of some teachers. They really focus on the 'perfect' students and act like they don't have extra time to help every child. I agree with a previous poster. They try to make all the kids the same and there is not time for them to socialize. They teach the FCAT and in my opinion not skills for life. Depending on the teacher expect your child to jump a grade and know everything on entering a new classroom. The principal is receptive if you have a problem but know that your teacher will label your child and make sure other teachers know it if you have concerns about the classroom. Some teachers are very defensive and are more interested in their own self-esteem than teaching ALL children. I plan on writing some definite reviews of my child's teacher on Rate My Teacher after this school year. Stay involved and positive!

    Overall it really depends on the teacher your child gets. They don't have recess only PE which is common around here. The kids can't talk a lot at lunch so they really aren't getting any energy out. If you have any problems with your teacher they'll talk you in circles as will the principal. They don't try to make things better. The principal is not the best she really only makes my child feel bad they try to make everyone the same my child stands out. She's very creative in her clothes and hair but she's an honor roll student and doesn't get in trouble but the principal talks to her more than the bully beating up her friends. Watch your teachers don't let them slide on anything. They'll only get worse if you do!

    My son went here for Kinder and the teachers were so helpful and welcoming. I am a stay at home mother and I was worried about the transition but he did great. These teachers care about their students and make a safe comfortable environment for learning.

And yes the staff stick together when you have a problem with a teacher or any other member.I have been right out lied to my face from some. But you have ppl like the bus driver and the nurse whom I like very much.They are my support group and Im glad that they are there if my child should need them.

    I love this school my son has been at this school for 4 years. We are moving this year I wish I could pick up the school and take it with us. Antioch thanks for the hard work and dedication. I have a apple for every person that works at that school. Good luck and god speed.

    I have two children attending Antioch one in third and the other in first. From my perspective our school's most significant strengths are the highly qualified teachers great parent support an active volunteer program and programs that fit the needs of students. Our school is in a continuous improvement mode with students reading better doing math better and writing better than ever before. There is an assistant on each grade level trained to help remediate math and reading skills. The students score above the district and state averages on FCAT and Antioch is recognized as one of the top 100 performing elementary schools in the state. Our Principal Glenda Robinson is always planning for improvement. Can this school get any better? Add our great Faculty and Staff and you have the ingredients for the best school in Crestview FL. We love Antioch and support it 100%. Submitted by S.Davis parent

    Antioch is awesome. We transferred in from a private school and thought we would be ahead of the other kids we were way wrong. My kids were way behind but with the help of some excellent teachers they caught right up. The staff at Antioch is fabulous. The teachers care for the students and it shows.

    Antioch Elementary is a wonderful school. When you walk into the school I feel very welcome and is greeted by the staff. There is a warm and friendly feeling. The teachers are absolutely wonderful and care about each student. I am very glad that my children is attending the school.

    Great school. Faculty is top-notch. Brillant teachers.

    Antioch has extremely dedicated teachers who work individually with each child. Mrs. Glenda Robinson knows the children's name and speaks to them every morning as she walks the halls. The Music program headed by Mrs. Linda Mitchell is UNBELIEVABLE. My son a first grader loves his music teacher! He looks forward to school every Monday just because he knows he is going to music.The faculty of Antioch expects alot from its students but they also do everything in their power to help students push the envelope of their knowledge.

    We have been pleased overall with Antioch. My daughter is in the 1st grade and attended here last year as well. I would like to see more emphasis on writing. I have been impressed with Southside elementary's program as we have friends with kids in the same grade at that school. The facility is older but it seems to me that there is more room for growing at your own pace there with the Project child program which is not available at Antioch. I give the support staff and teachers I've had contact with an A+. Ms. Adams in Kindergarden is awesome.
