• Principal’s Message

    Welcome to Antelope Hills Elementary School!


    Home of the Explorers and a California Distinguished School, Antelope Hills is proud of its strong academic focus and character programs established to ensure that each student is well-prepared for the challenges that they will face throughout their lifetime. 
    We have established a family-like atmosphere here at Antelope Hills, where students, teachers and parents all contribute to the overall school success. From custodians to playground supervisors to the office staff, each adult is responsible for helping students become the best they possibly can be.  It truly does take a village to raise a child and here at Antelope Hills, we pride ourselves in that philosophy.

    Students are not only held to high academic standards, but they are also expected to follow our Six Pillars of Character on a regular basis.  Trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship are traits our students and staff must possess to ensure a complete educational experience.

    I look forward to meeting and working with parents, staff, our PTA and most of all our students every day.  I encourage everyone to get involved and play an active role here at Antelope Hills.  Encouragement, support, and positive interactions by all will take Antelope Hills to the next level.


    Join the adventure!
