At Antilles we value the school's small size and the commitment of our faculty and staff to the whole child. We are a school where "Excellence, Diversity and Community" are more than words on a masthead: they are concepts that guide us every day. Student enrollment has varied greatly in recent years. While once typically a school of approximately 500 students, we have 330 students enrolled for the 2020-2021 school year. Our students are active in Student Government organizations, community service and academic clubs and athletics and sailing.
Throughout the grades Antilles has a vertically aligned curriculum in all subject areas: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Social Studies, Spanish, Art, Music and Physical Education. In the early years, subjects are interwoven with theme-based, hands-on learning activities. The students become independent learners and critical thinkers as they grow developmentally. When they cross the parking lot to Middle School and Upper School, students start to have more choices in their learning path with many Honors and Advanced Placement courses available to choose from.
