Teachers are very helpful and experts in their fields. They take the extra effort to answer questions, and have lots of availability. The Guidance counselors are always there for the students, preparing them to go onto college. There are many clubs, sports, and activities to participate in. The student body, for a large school is inclusive and cohesive. The administration is supportive, encouraging, and friendly. Overall a great package!

So far, I am enjoying my time at Andover High School. The teachers are very passionate and genuinely care about their students, although there is quite a bit of emphasis on sports, rather than artistic extracurriculars. The quality of Andover High School is very good, but the physical building could use some renovations and the science labs could be improved. All in all, I am very grateful to be a student here!
I loved my time at Andover High School, I loved my classes and all my teachers. There's a great culture at Andover High, everyone wants each other to succeed, and in general just a really friendly community. I am a three sport captain and I can't emphasize it enough, but the athletics programs are elite and so enjoyable. Andover High is a very diverse and inclusive school where everyone finds their path. I'm so thankful that I went through Andover High School!
