Andover High School Reviews

My name is Garrett Dorf, and I currently attend the optimum high school in Kansas, Andover High. Over 800 bright and talented students attend school for 7 hours per day, ready to learn about all kinds of different information, including from subjects ranging from Advanced Placement English Language, to Advanced Placement Environmental Science. Most of the teachers at my school are exceptional, but a few struggle to teach at the quality rate that is expected from teachers at Andover High. Our sports teams are also prodigious, and our girls tennis team has won the state championship for five consecutive years. Students can also be involved in numerous activities that are not sports, such as STUCO, Scholar's Bowl, and any fine arts department at our school. Overall, I am extremely proud to attend a high school that offers an exceptional combination of academics, sports, and extracurricular activities.

Andover has a pretty good academics. There are some really good teachers and there are some really bad ones. The arts are very underfunded but are staffed with amazing teachers. The counselors help you plan your post-high school plans. The new principal is trying to change too many things all at once and won't let the teachers just teach. The students and staff lack diversity.The Andover district just received a bond that allows it to update facilities and Andover High is being rebuilt.
Andover offers many extracurricular opportunities with clubs, sports, and fine arts. The activities reach out to people with many different interests. Athletes involve themselves in sports, theatre or music artists are in fine arts, public speakers join debate, and artists express themselves in art clubs. This school offers many opportunities to express one's hobbies and interests while socializing with others. Our school has two separate administrative directors to help support both activities and athletics at Andover. This way, each area receives support and attention from administration. Two of the largest and most popular extracurricular activities are band and sports. Currently 190 students make up the Trojan Marching Band. That number adds up to almost one third of the student body population. Within band, students are also involved in sports, debate, art, and other activities. Band caters to so many groups and unties the school together. Overall, Andover has numerous opportunities to help students get involved to meet different interests.
