There are plenty of excellent opportunities for advanced classes in most subjects, excepting foreign languages. There are opportunities to go to Washington D.C. or Europe with the Socials Studies teachers. Forensics and debate do well in competitions. The band program is well established, but there is no orchestra. The choral program has grown significantly and I enjoyed being a part of it. The sports teams are active and usually do well in competition. There is a pretty average mix of teachers, with more excellent ones than terrible ones. The requirement for valedictorian is simple, just a 4.0 GPA. It is a great school, just not very diverse in ethnicity.

One of the best public schools in South Central Kansas! I loved my time at ACHS and recommend it to other students and parents. There are plenty of clubs and activities, the teachers are nice. My golf coaches were wonderful, stressing that studies are more important than the sport and allowing us to skip a tournament if our school load was too heavy. The school is not as diverse as neighboring public schools, I felt that it was diverse enough to not leave me feeling out of touch with other ethnic students as compared to my mother's high school, which only had 2 African-American students. While I don't love homework, I'm not sure the workload was enough to prepare me for college because I struggled with 2 classes I took my junior year. Overall, I highly recommend ACHS!
At Andover Central High School, the academics are great all thanks to the support of supportive teachers and resources. The classes available prepare students for college. Most of the sports teams - volleyball, golf, swim, track and field - have made it to state. There are a variety of clubs and activities, but I feel like there could be more clubs. School culture is good, but there could be more participation from students. Although the diversity is lacking with few only a few minorities. The administration is helpful and wants what it is best for the students. The facilities are clean thanks to the friendly janitors, and students never have to worry about their safety with an SRO officer at the school.
