My 4 years at AHS were ones to remember. I remember walking into the first day of freshman year and seeing boys with beards and wondering what I was doing there! Yes you'd think that the older seniors were welcoming and nice to freshman but that was not always the case. Being there for the past 4 years, I have noticed something. Kids these days have lost all people-person skills. Everybody is so sucked into their technology and they have no consideration for others. Nobody holds the doors, nobody has full on face to face conversations, everyone is so focused on who recently posted on Instagram. One thing that I would like to see change, if its possible, would to see there be an etiquette class taught at the high school. Once your out into college and the real world, you have to have professional skills that can be used anywhere you go. That would be the one thing that I would like to see change at Andover High School.

When I was a child I had a hard time learning. Not many schools focused on education but more on disobedience. Andover High School has teachers that not only care about the behavior of their students but their education as well. The teachers do not teach just to graduate from high school but to teach you more then you need. This is to get you prepared for college or the outside world. Not much of a diversity group of children but it is mostly where it is located. Parents are very involved with the school, even other kids within the area. Such as the middle schools and elementary schools. I absolutely am thankful for being a part of Andover High. God Bless you all!
Andover High School has a very standard white community. Our school does not contain much diversity. Myself being white and being an athlete, made my transition into the school much easier than for others. I came to Andover High School halfway through my sophomore year. At first it was difficult to find my way around the school, but with the help of many students that later became my friends, my transition became easier. Other students do not feel the same way because of their differences with the community. Andover needs to create a more caring and diverse environment, allowing all students and faculty to feel apart of the student and teacher body, without changing who they are to fit in. Creating a more diverse student population, allows the student body to be open and prepared for the diversity in the real world. Students will be more open and accepting, creating a successful environment for all.
