Andover High School Reviews
Andover High School is filled with amazing educators that care about their students' unique academic needs in addition to offering many athletic and non-athletic activities where every student can find their niche.
Andover High School has a great team of administrators and faculty who care about the students and want to do everything they can to help them succeed. Many classes are offered including AP and honors classes. This is beneficial to some students who like an extra challenge. Andover also has a well-rounded fine arts program. There are multiple choirs students can participate in and they also have a wonderful theatre department. An area that could be improved is the inclusiveness of all students who attend this school.
Andover has been a very positive influence on my education and life. I have met lifelong friends, been very involved, and have had a great chance to learn in a very suitable environment. The counselors are very nice and accommodating to your needs and will help you pick classes to best prepare you for the next stage in your life. Sporting events are the best part of school, especially when you’re not playing. Student section is very loud and involved in the community and the games. All in all, Andover has been an amazing place to grow up and to attend school.
Andover was a pretty good school. I felt safe going into my school everyday. Teachers are pretty willing to help students when they need the help. One thing that I liked at Andover was the opportunities to take duel credit classes! That would be one thing that I wish I started sooner!
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.
Such a positive community. Filled with tons of teachers who you could tell actually cared about their students.
Andover has amazing teachers tons of athletic programs and very good academics classes are usually under 25 kids per classroom and it was always very easy to get extra help or one on one time with teachers and the graduation rate has always been very high
It was a Suburb in Kansas. I went to schools there from my seventh grade to 12th. The teachers were great but I'm not sure it prepared me for college and beyond. I drive through the town and think of it fondly.
I love Andover High School! The faculty is amazing and is super friendly to work with! I have never had any issues. The students promote an inviting atmosphere and they definitely love their sports!
I love the atmosphere. The teachers are some of the best in the state. The school offers a lot of AP classes.
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.
Personally, I have never felt unsafe inside my school. I know it is possible for other students to feel unsafe, but as a whole we have never had much of a threat. We have a police officer always available inside the building. There are security cameras everywhere, and always a teacher in the hall. The nurse is helpful and wants the best for all students. We have drug dogs that come at random times throughout the year and check the parking lot and the inside lockers. We are constantly doing drills for safety measures. All around, I feel 100% comfortable being inside the building everyday.
When the final bell rings, it seems that there are always more than 20 kids remaining in the school for some type of activity; not including anyone apart of a sport team. Student Council is extremely involved with almost everything that goes on in the school. We have a day specifically set apart from other days dedicated to a club at the end of the day which the student chooses. They involve a christian club, a Big Brothers Big Sisters club, fishing club, sports club, knitting club, photo club, and so forth. There are many opportunities for students to be involved in the school with something they have a passion for. We have many updated resources to choose from.
Being at the school for 4 years, I have formed amazing relationships with my teachers. They not only make me laugh, but genuinely care about my life and my skills. I am challenged by each of my teachers to do better and to do more. They get to know their students on a deeper level, creating a comfortable atmosphere in the classrooms. I am able to ask any and all questions that are of topic, and get assistance every time. The teachers are welcome to change and exciting newness. I love going to school everyday, and feel at home.
My favorite experience at this school has been doing marching band and symphonic band for 4 years, including being a section leader for one of them. It has helped me develope very strong relationships and a music hobby. It has taught me leadership, diligence, and dedication, and I will never forget it.
The teachers definitely care about their students; however, many of them are too knowledgeable to explain lessons in a comprehensive language, and many expect students to understand the material after being taught once.
The majority of students at Andover High School will be involved in some sport or extra curricular activity. The band is a huge activity numerous of students are members and many band members are also involved in sports like football and basketball. At games the 190 person band cheers on the teams along with a large student section. For a locally held tournament at Wichita State University, nearly half the school made up the band and student section and went to the basketball game. Overall, the involvement at Andover is high and gives the school a fun and unified atmosphere.
