Welcome To Antioch
Antioch Elementary School, home of the Aviators, is a public school located in the Florida Panhandle with approximately 850 students enrolled in Kindergarten through fifth grade.
The faculty, staff and parents at Antioch set high academic standards and are committed to providing a safe, inviting and challenging environment for all students. With highly qualified teachers, school based professional development, research-based reading instruction in small groups, hands-on instructional programs emphasizing reading, writing, mathematics and science, students are expected to master the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS)/Common Core Standards and continue to make academic growth and achievement. Antioch’s academic progress has placed our school among the top performing elementary schools in Okaloosa County.
A tradition of excellence continues as standardized test scores reflect our Aviators' academic success. Antioch Elementary School has maintained an A+ rating from the State of Florida for the past twelve years and has met NCLB requirements. We are committed to navigating beyond our horizon.
This is an important announcement for parents of students in Okaloosa County schools.
Hello, this is Mary Beth Jackson, Superintendent of Schools. I want to reach out to you today as both Superintendent and as a parent to share with you my concerns about a highly offensive social media "app" called “After School” that is targeted at middle and high school students - The app is marketed as an anonymous and private message board for your school.
I want to emphasize that this app is in no way affiliated or endorsed by the school district and does not exist on our network.
In some cases, students have used this app to make hurtful, profane comments and in other cases display graphic and sexually explicit videos. Because the app allows for anonymous postings and occurs completely outside the school district’s network, there is little we can do to track down information from a technology standpoint when a student is being targeted. Rest assured, however, your child's school will work with our Student Services department and local law enforcement officials when warranted to investigate any issues of cyberbullying that are uncovered.
This app has caused so much difficulty, in so little time, that I want to reach out to our students, staff, families, and the community to ask everyone to help monitor this app and to eliminate its use.

Deputy Spooney will be transferring to Ruckel Middle School. We have enjoyed having her at Antioch as our School Resource Officer (SRO). We will have a new SRO beginning Jan. 5. We will miss her.
Antioch's Junior Deputies made ornaments and helped Kindergarteners make postcards for sheriff deputies that will be on duty on Christmas day.
We would like to thank all the deputies that work to keep us safe.
We raised $1,005 for Children in Crisis with your generosity in purchasing the Christmas lights that are displayed at the front of the school.
** Health Advisory Council - Lice season**
With colder weather and the need to wear hats, scarves and jackets lice typically spread quickly at elementary schools.
Please encourage children not to pile jackets/sweaters together, especially at PE and multipurpose gatherings.
Parent, please be aware the signs of lice and help our students avoid this experience.
