Letter from Principal Eric Hamilton


As the countdown began to the beginning of another school year, I felt myself drawn to take one last fishing trip with my wife and children. Finding myself drifting in the middle of a lake and feeling the excitement of a tug on the end of the fishing line, reminded me of the excitement our students and teachers feel at the start of a new school year. I hope you have been able to enjoy the time with your family and are able to fit in one last adventure before another begins. Throughout the summer months we have been preparing for the start of another great year at Antioch Community High School. There have been upgrades to the roof, renovations to six bathrooms, new ceilings in certain areas of the building, an expanded art room, and other enhancements throughout the building. It is an exciting time to be a Sequoit, as we continue to work and learn within our one-to-one computing environment. However, as we move to the vanguard of education, we still engage in the tried and true processes that have helped ACHS succeed. We are still focused on the basic qualities of good teaching. As I begin my third year as principal, I hope you will join me in the excitement, anticipation, focus on excellence, and high expectations with which I enter every school year.  

I am honored and humbled to be the Principal of Antioch Community High School. For those that are new to the ACHS community, I am excited to help your students discover and pursue the areas in which they have a passion. For those that have students returning to the high school, your partnership, perspective, trust, and voice are all critically important in sustaining this wonderful school. Together, we can make a difference in the experiences, outcomes, and opportunities for all of our students. As the father of two daughters, I see the work that students put forth to achieve high expectations and experience the rewards of effective effort. My role is to support and encourage that work for all of the students at Antioch Community High School.
