I absolutely loved Andover Central and all the opportunities it gave me to get involved. The teachers are wonderful and really care about the students. Many of the students were involved and gave their all when it came to the band/choir, theatre, and sports. This year for example, our band/choir excelled at competitions, our cheer team got 3rd at state, our boys soccer team place 2nd at state, our boys basketball team earned 4th at state, our baseball team got 3rd at state, our softball athletes were state champions, and our boys golf team won back-to-back state titles.

I can say that Andover Central High has been a great fit for me. I’m glad I got the chance to go to school here. I have made long lasting friendships with teachers/ students. I can definitely say that my teachers have played a major role in my success at Andover Central. It is because of the love and kindness that the teachers showed me once I walked through the doors of that school. I would tell others to come to Andover Central because many people think that Andover Central is not diverse and they’re not friendly at all. I have the experience to say that, it is very diverse and that I have made long lasting relationships as said before.
I enjoyed how well the teachers interacted with the students. As I have graduated from high school, I now see that the most important things that I remember are not the greatest lessons learned or subjects taught. However, it is how well the teachers interacted with the students and Andover Central did an incredible job of this.
