Andover Central High School Reviews

I have had a great experience working with counselors, administrators, and teachers at Andover Central High School. Many showed personal concern and interest in my aspirations and were willing to help me achieve my dreams. It is wonderful to also have so many academically rigorous programs at ACHS. I loved the number of honors classes that were offered, even in subjects, I would never expect like Modern World History. Academic after school activities such as Science Olympiad and Scholars Bowl meant a lot to many students. I truly felt like the AP and honors classes have helped prepare me for college. The only criticism that I can truly give Andover Central High School is in the category of diversity. There were not many students (or teachers) that really strayed from the white upper-middle-class range. I understand that it is not entirely in the control of the school, but it was what I had noticed.

While the beginning of my high school years were amazing. Filled with passionate students and thriving traditions. The administration is starting to cut back from the schools traditions that made it so unique in the first place. White powder at football games, paintings on the walls, and senior pranks, are just some of the traditions that the school has ripped away. When you take away the passion and fun that school traditions bring to the students, they start to lose interest in the school, and it starts to feel like a prison rather than a fun place to learn.
Andover Central's outstanding staff and administration are not the only things that set this school above all others in this area. The deep-rooted school spirit that you sense around every corner, the welcoming students who are kind and friendly. Teachers who work with every student to make sure that they are receiving a top-notch education. These are just a few of the things that you will find here ar Andover Central High School.
