I don’t feel safe in this school because it’s so easy for people to walk in from the community college or even the front doors. The athletics arnt great but get more reconvening than our fine arts programs who exceed in all that they do. There are a handful of teachers that actually care and teach extremely well. They spend money on things they don’t need and don’t put it towards the actually needs of the school. The theatre department needs a better budget so they can do what they desire, the trojanettes need new outfits, and there are so many other things that could be put forth for the programs that succeed.

I have gone through many schools in my lifetime due to the fact that my father is in the Air Force. This means that I have had plenty of experiences and overall, Andover is simply average. The reason I say this is because our high school is focused on all the wrong things. Recently we spent, I believe, 2,000 dollars on an inflatable tunnel for the football boys to run through...for thirty seconds. Why? Why could we not have spent this money on something more important? Perhaps better equipment for the speech and debate team. Along with that, why do we shout the achievements of our sports teams but not our academic teams? I have heard a total of three things about our academic teams (who always perform above average), however, they are not hesitant to shout the small achievements of the football and baseball team. On the flip side, Andover is upgrading their school in the next few years. Hopefully, with this change, Andover will be able to improve itself and it's priorities.
Andover high school suffers from a large diversity problem- it's mostly rich white kids who think they know best and can buy their grades. It has an amazing theatre department, mostly because of the teacher. There are a few teachers here at AHS that deeply care about their students and want to see them succeed. The others are poor at best at both teaching and caring for their students. It's a very stratified experience, to say the least.
