New District Website

The Antwerp Local School District has transitioned to a new website with the intent of providing more timely and up to date information for our school community.

Superintendent's Message

Antwerp Local Schools will open its doors to the start of another promising new school year Tuesday, August 18, 2015. Approximately 93 teachers, staff, and administrators will welcome more than 650 students through our doors. The beginning of school always brings a variety of emotions — excitement, anticipation, and yes, a little bit of nerves for students, teachers, parents, staff and administrators alike. As I start my first school year as your superintendent, I share many of the same emotions, and am looking forward to a rewarding year together.

Our highly qualified professional educators and support personnel have a common goal – to do what is best for students and to not only meet, but also exceed your expectations. We are pleased to have you as partners in this endeavor.

As we prepare for the 2015-16 school year, and keep our mission to facilitate maximum learning for every student at the heart of all our efforts, I encourage everyone to set new goals, think big, and embrace new connections and experiences.

Enjoy these last days of summer, and best wishes for a positive, productive and rewarding school year.

Dr. Martin A. Miller
