Fabulous Follies

Antioch High’s music department hit it out of the park with its first Panther Follies last weekend. The cabaret-style evening featured Music Masters and the Show Choir performing numbers from “West Side Story,” “Cinderella,” “Wicked,” “Ragtime,” and “Kiss Me Kate,” accompanied by an accomplished pianist.
Choir director Sarah Phelan plans to make this an annual event.

Mayor's Cup remains at AHS


The Antioch vs. Deer Valley match turned out to be an exciting game with the Panthers trailing 19-8 with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter. But, our team came through in a big way winning 44-19 and retaining the Mayor's Cup for the third year in a row. 

Hooray for Homecoming!

Homecome1 Oct2016.JPG

Tatiana Mendez (escorted by Gary Wallace) was named homecoming queen with a first-of-its-kind announcement for Panther Country. Jim Harbaugh, renowned Michigan University and former 49er coach, read the big reveal during halftime. The princess court featured Savannah Vanderzwan (Cole Kies), Catherine Quecan (Jeromy Quach), Esmeralda Fregoso (Bernado Mendoza), Kathy Valenciano (Carlos Lopez) and Chelsea Abillano (Michael Sellers). The Panthers beat the Liberty Lions, after an hour brown out in the stadium, 62-25.

Hot diggity dog!


Runners + Dogs = Fun! Antioch High is thrilled about its new Panther Tails program, which buddies up the cross country team and Antioch Animal Shelter dogs. Students loved the pups; the dogs got fresh air and exercise; and adoption may increase. Thanks to Chief Allan Cantando and Principal Louie Rocha for green lighting this right out of the gate, and to Coach Lisa Cuza for saying yes! It's community engagement at its best. KTVU recently did a live feed on this exciting program on Sept. 22, and aired an additional segment on this engaging program.  #ThisIsAntiochHigh



Applause, applause

Cheers to Ms. Anne Swatzell and Ms. Shira Sweitzer, shown here being congratulated by
Principal Louie Rocha,
for being honored as two of the top teachers by the Antioch Schools Education Foundation's Mary Allan Fellows award event. Both English teachers were celebrated, along with 10 other AUSD educators, for their commitment, dedication and innovative spirit to their students. We're so proud of these Antioch High teachers! 


Raging rally


Panther Country kicked it into high gear with a fun-filled rally and a crushing football game against Lincoln. Our championship team won the game 67-38! On Sept. 16 the Panthers are at Rancho Cotate and on Sept. 23, we'll be at De LaSalle. Our championship team returns home on Oct. 7 against Freedom High.  


New rules of the road

We have new drop-off and pick-up areas. In order to provide a greater level of safety, there are two designated areas for pick-up and drop-off. The gym parking lot is for westbound traffic, while the student parking lot is for eastbound traffic. There is no parking or stopping in front of the school office or Beede Auditorium. We appreciate your help in using these improved areas, which ensure the safety of students entering the school campus and secure the bike path. 

Antioch High + Hollywood


AHS grad and "Sharknado" director Anthony Ferrante (second from left) shot his new thriller at several spots on our campus over the weekend. He also spoke with the 30-some students who joined the fun and cast them in various background shots. It was an interesting and hands-on experience, especially for our Media-Tech Academy students. For the next couple weeks, Ferrante and his crew will be filming around Antioch - a little tribute to his hometown.

Welcome to Panther Country

We're happy to welcome our new and returning students to Antioch High, home of the Panthers. Built in 1955, our school has a long history of pride, spirit, academic and athletic excellence and strong community. We're in the midst of renovating our 60-year-old school. The current updates are the cafeteria and quad area (near the office), the 1100 wing transformation into a media and tech center and completion of updating all classes and halls. Last year we saw the beautiful unveiling of our fabulous Eells Stadium and the office-library building. Here's wishing you a fantastic school year.
Go, Panthers!

Goodbye, office

Antioch High's original 1955 office was taken down in early August to make way for a spacious cafeteria and inviting quad area. The modernization of those two areas is set to be done by late 2017. Also, the entire 1100 hall and vintage library will be transformed into a media center, while the remainder of the halls and classrooms will be finished. Those upgrades should be complete by spring of 2017. The campus-wide renovation is made possible by voters passing Bond Measure B. 



Congrats to the Class of 2016!

Michigan U leads camp


Jim Harbaugh and his Michigan University coaching team held a football camp at Antioch High for some 200 student athletes on June 23. The two-hour event was held on Eells Field with parents and Harbaugh fans in the bleachers. The top-notch camp featured an array of drills, tips and hands-on work with the coaches. Members of Antioch High's championship football team were on hand, as well as coaches including head coach John Lucido and principal Louie Rocha. The
No. 1 recruit in the nation, AHS running back Najee Harris, worked one-on-one with a Michigan coach during the session.

Panther Parade

Panther Parade May 2016 080.JPG

Despite just a few days to organize, the debut of Antioch High's Senior Panther Parade was a hit. Some 40 Panthers enjoyed rock-star status and the elementary students at Belshaw, Fremont, Kimball and Marsh were overjoyed to see the
soon-to-be grads in caps and gowns. Staff and students cheered and clapped as our seniors walked around. It was a great way for the Class of 2016 to see where they begin 13 years ago and for the elementary students to make these connections and be inspired to continue to the graduation finish line.
A new Antioch High tradition has been born.

Fabulous prom


Antioch High held its first Buddy Club Prom, which beautifully mixed its special ed students with traditional learners. The prom, held in the school's vintage library, featured testimonials from mentors, awards, scholarships, food, photos and music. The club is the brainchild of junior Savannah Vanderzwan, who came up with the concept so that "all students" could enjoy the high school experience. In addition to the weekly meetings, the club has had several special gatherings and field trips. Teacher Andy Lemos is the advisor. Principal Louie Rocha was impressed by the students who coordinated the event and said "I'm proud to be the principal of AHS."



Super scholarships

AHS scholarship2016.jpg

Antioch High hosted its annual Scholarship Night on May 10 in Beede Auditorium. The stage was filled with about 65 students, who received more about $72,000 in scholarships. Friends and family came out to celebrate the seniors, who were honored with about 125 scholarships by a variety of individuals, memorials, annual, alum, businesses and community. Special thanks to the Antioch Community Scholarship Fund committee, which worked tirelessly with College & Career lead Kashauna Clipps and Vice Principal Lindsay Wisely to make the event a success, and, to the Class of 1966 for its generous scholarships.


Big Blue pays a visit

JimHarbaugh Jan19 2016 021.JPG


Everybody wants to be part of Panther Country, including Coach Jim Harbaugh, who would love to have our Najee Harris become a Michigan Wolverine. Harbaugh paid a visit to AHS on Jan. 19 and meet with Harris (the No. 1 high school running back), along with Wolverine defensive line coach Greg Mattison, Jay Harbaugh, principal Louie Rocha, offensive coordinator Brett Dudley and head coach John Lucido. In mid-December Harris was visited by the head coaches from Notre Dame and Cal Berkeley.

We are the champions

Our mighty Panthers put up a tough fight against Foothill in the NCS semi-finals on Nov. 28. The Pleasanton team edged out AHS by 55-54 in the last minute of the game. One veteran preps sports editor said it was one of the "greatest high school games" he'd ever seen. The football team ends this tremendous season with an 11-0 record; the best since 1977.  We applaud the team and coaches for an amazing job, and students and staff for the fabulous support and spirit. Go, Panthers!

Renovations continue


In 2012, our community showed its support by voting yes

on Measure B. We plan to honor your investment of our historic campus with a strong and vibrant modernization

of Antioch High over the next couple years. Our website via the RENOVATIONS page provides a variety of info - from detailed plans and drawings to the timeline of the changes happening here on campus.

And, they hit it out of the park by winning first place in three categories: Auxiliary, Percussion and Military Marching. We're so proud of our hard-working student musicians, including drum major Carlos Amaral, drum captain Gregory Lewis, and letter captain Mia Steinmetz, along with band director Mr. Kenan Baker. Big thanks to the Antioch Band Boosters Association for its help and support. Go, Panthers!

Senior Aimie McGoldrick was an honored nominee. Held at Lone Tree Event Center, the three were impressive, inspiring and humble. Big congrats to all!
