ACHS Welcomes New Principal

Antioch Community High School

On Friday morning we said hello to our new principal, Eric Hamilton.
According to superintendent Jim McKay, “Mr. Hamilton comes to us with a strong background in curriculum and instruction as he is currently an Assistant Principal in that capacity at Lake Zurich High School since 2004. We are very excited for him to join our team. We are confident that Mr. Hamilton will provide the necessary leadership for Antioch Community High School. In the coming weeks, Mr. Hamilton plans to spend some time at Antioch in an effort to become acquainted with the staff and students.”

Mr. Hamilton spent the day touring ACHS, meeting students and faculty. “Advancing in administration has always been a goal of mine,” said Hamilton, “but only in the right place, and here in Antioch I think I’ve found the right place.”
