I liked my experience at Antioch High School. Everyone was nice and the sports team we're great. It was just renovated with brand new buildings and programs.
my experience Antioch High School was amazing due to the good grades i have, and the relationships i made with the teachers here. I involved into a lot of clubs and activities that it changed me over the courses i've been at Antioch.
During my senior year, there was a high incidence of violence. Notably, multiple campus gun/ knife/weapon occurrences and even an event where a male student entered a classroom, stabbed a young female student, doused her with gasoline and attempted to set her on fire. Ther was always at least one police liaison on campus.

Academics were average at best. While few went on to very good colleges and universities, there was a high non-graduation rate. Most classes did not prepare one for higher education, though some of the teaching staff seemed to have a passion for what they did.

There was a high emphasis on sports - many went on to play in college as well as professional.

Diversity was poor to average for Northern California: White (majority), Black, South Asian, Asian, gay, straight, and all in the poor to lower middle socioeconomic class.

Due to the socioeconomic class, parent involvement was rather low, less the booster clubs that supported the sports teams.

Antioch high school is a good school and has easy going people with not much drama. The school is very diverse which makes it better for people to meet new and different people.
Antioch High is overall a great school. The teachers really care about the students and how they preform in class. If youre a student who is having some problems, there is always a teacher there to help you. One thing that is severly overlooked, due to Najee Harris, the number 1 running back in the country, being on campus, is the visual and preforming arts. Our school has a dedicated marching band, one who is at every home game regardless of the band review the next morning. Alongside with that, the vocal department, which i am a part of, is in need of new everything, from stage mics to a working sound system. Other than that, Antioch high is a good school.
This school has changed quite a bit since my attendance, however, it has updated the buildings and sports arena.
Overall, attending Antioch High School was an okay experience. The worst aspect of the school would have to be the students themselves. I do not mean the student body as a whole, but the majority of them. I have never seen so much disrespect and attitude in one place. The diversity is great! Not just diversity of culture, but diversity of personality. A lot of people like a lot of different things. As for teachers, I have never had any problems. Teachers here are passionate about what they do and care about their students. As for college readiness, I feel as if I am not being properly prepared for further education. The teachers are far too lenient. Antioch High is okay. It really is it's location that gives it its bad qualities. Antioch is not a good town to live in. As for my experience, I've had more positive moments that negative moments here, and the departure of this institution will surely be bittersweet.
Antioch High school is a school with great diversity and college readiness. They provide a list of academies, Leadership and public services, engineering, Media Tech, and much more. They prepare you for your future. There are many clubs and sports to be a part of. They do have excellent electives raging from art to language. However, I would like to see Medicine electives and maybe medical involved clubs.
Some teachers care . Some do not . It's hit or miss. many teachers are frustrated with students because of their limited attention and comprehension skills. Teachers do have their favorites, though it is unclear on how this affects grading.
There are a variety of teachers available, with varying levels of competence, according to many of the students I converse with.

However, many classes I wanted to attend (e.g. Autoshop) have been cut due to budgeting issues.
Given the area, the student culture is very diverse and stretches across different ethnic and religious groups. However, there is a looming "ghetto" culture that is very prevalent among a majority of the African American students.
Given the area, I cannot accurately summarize the health/safety measures that the school implements.
The extracurricular activities are diverse and well-fitting for many different tastes and lifestyles.
I have been involved with several different clubs and communities within Antioch High, and I can safely say I have thoroughly enjoyed my time there and got along with the majority of the very diverse student body.
Most of my teachers are very supportive of different student opinions, as long as said students have facts or evidence to justify their claims or opinions.

They all have great tolerance for different religious practices, nationalities, political opinion, etc.
The school offers a broad range of classes that are taught by adaptable teachers who are always willing to help their students. They try not to have a large workload since they understand that their students have other responsibilities outside of school to address. Tutoring is offered, and many students get the help they need. The curriculum is fair yet has everyone work to their fullest. However, it does not have a variety of language classes, and students in academies are required to take certain classes, which puts an unfair restraint on what they can learn.
These students are very accepting of other ethnicities and sexual and gender orientation. They help each other to ensure that their peers are accepted and welcome. Almost every student is involved in a sport or club, and are very dedicated to their activities.

In my opinion, this school is notably safe; there are little to no moments when I don't feel safe at this school. Along with required identifictaion, there are moderately armed security that keep the school safe. It also offers services through the main office and a health truck that occasionally visits the campus on a weekly basis.
This school offers a variety of clubs sponsored by teachers and faculty to appeal to most students' interests, and there are many students who are very dedicated to these clubs and organizations. The school recognizes every club in its after-school program, and actively encourage student participation. While attending Antioch High School, I participated in the ASAHi club and GSA, which consisted of fun games, club activities, and member participation in fundraisers for the club.
This school has a positive environment with a supportive school government. There are always a number of fun activities to participate in, and many students to interact with. What makes this school unique is its positive student body, in which each student supports each other and helps one another. If given the chance to repeat high school, I would do so at Antioch High School because of all the wonderful students and faculty members, the activities, and the educational and career opportunities that it offers.
