Antonia Elementary History
In the beginning, there were four one-room schoolhouses in the area. The Leicht School about 1 ½ mile down West Moss Hollow RD, the Moss Hollow School about 1/1 mile down Lemay Ferry RD, Antonia School about 1 ½ mile down Old Lemay Ferry RD, and the Four Ridge School, then located where the Clyde Hammerick campus is now located. All of these schools are still standing and are private residences.
In the fall of 1951, the four schools became Reconsolidated District 4 (R-4), and school was held in the Antonia School building. This building then consisted of what is now the Kindergarten area. The school taught 1st thru 8th grade. Then about 90% of the students went to 9th grade at Herculaneum, House Springs, Hillsboro, or Crystal City. The school colors were dark green and white, and the mascot was a Hornet. The first graduating class had 19 students.
In 1970 an election was held to join Fox C-6 School District. The graduation class of 1970 went to Fox High School.
