{May 16, 2017} BARNHART, MO – For seven consecutive years, Antonia Middle School has been awarded the maximum number of promising practices awards by Character.org. That accounts for two awards each year since Antonia Middle first opened its doors in 2010. In addition to those 14 awards, Antonia was also part of an award won by Bridges, the district's alternative school, for a partnership between those buildings.

“It’s truly humbling to be a part of this building and community,” Principal Joe Willis said. “We encourage our students to be innovative leaders and many of the ideas come right from our students.”

Promising Practices Awards are given to schools and districts throughout the country for implementation of unique and specific strategies for targeting character education. Antonia Middle was recognized this year for two separate programs designed to target and enhance character education in the school.
