  • The Antioch School— A grand experiment going strong

    Antioch School older group students learned how to strum and sing “Oh my darling Clementine” on the new ukeleles teacher Chris Powell added this school year to their musical education tool kit. Clockwise from Powell are Forrest Row, Kaden Boutis, Jorie Sieck, Ket White, Evelyn Potter, Grant Crawford and Ella Comerford. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    In its 90th year, the Antioch School — one of the nation’s oldest — will once again craft lessons around the passions of its students, all the while continuing its longstanding traditions and tested instruction methods, teachers said last week.

In front is Eli Jones. The play will be presented Friday, May 20 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 21 at 1 p.m. at the Clifton Opera House. (Photo by Diane Chiddister)

    At the Antioch School, things get done a bit differently, and that includes the school musical. As befits a school that advocates a holistic approach to learning, the children are involved in all phases of the production, from choosing the play to picking their character, from designing their costume to decorating the set.

  • Antioch School kids feel the beat

    Kids love drums. Performer and educator Eric “The Fish” Paton thinks he knows why. “There’s this sense of personal expression that’s possible,” Paton said in a recent interview, comparing introducing drums to a group of children with introducing oboes, a process that would take considerably longer. “Everyone can find their voice quickly.”

  • Everything on wheels

    The Antioch School organized a bike riding event to raise money for its scholarship fund last Sunday.

  • Antioch School enlivens a classic

    Anyone who has been alive for longer than five years has likely seen the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. But far fewer have read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the novel published by Frank Baum in 1900, which the Antioch School students say is more complicated and slightly more vicious.

  • Plucky harpists learn some string theory at Antioch School

    The children sat on a rug in a semicircle around the visiting harpist in the art/science room at The Antioch School, each hugging her or his own child-sized harp, their faces pressed close to the strings.
