As a former AUGS student, I would say that my experience was pretty average. The most frequent thing that would happen in this school was bullying. Many people didn’t notice it because it wasn’t normally physical. It was verbal or through social media. There is a system built for reporting bullying, but the administration NEVER views it. Also, along with that, many kids who were bullied were oblivious about being bullied because it was difficult for them to notice it. Such as kids pretending to be friends with another kid, and make “jokes” about them. Many kids who realized that it was bullying didn’t do anything about it and continued about there everyday life. It’s really sad how kids can be so cruel. This type of situation in my middle school experience happened SO OFTEN. Not to mention, but AUGS had many kids on drugs or either vaping (sometimes even in class).

At Antioch Upper Grade School, I recently started helping out with the boys volleyball program, getting a chance to check their facilities after 4-5 years and allowing myself to recollect on the environment that has been put into place. Therefore, I strongly believe that the school culture and extracurricular activities are very strong, allowing students to easily become involved in something that gets them with friends and/or the facility itself.

That being said, the administration is a bit unstable and questionable in their activities. Recently, a past principal resigned from his position due to "family concerns", which was later to be found questionable based on his involvement in other motives. Additionally, much police involvement has been correlated in the last year or so, creating a different sort of environment and ultimately messing with the general ambiance that a middle school should have.
At Antioch Upper Grade School I always felt a sense of community. We had so many fun activities, field trips, teachers, and more. Everybody at the school made it an easy transition from elementary school as well.
