What I Like About Andover High School Is The Fact That I Feel Accepted By Others And Feel Apart Of The School. I Cannot Tell You How Much Andover High School Has Changed Me In Good Ways! I Am The Mascot Of Andover High School And I Absolutely Love My Job! It Really Has Became A Huge Part Of Who I Am Today! I Could Not Be More Thankful For The Opportunities I Get To Have And To Have The People That I Have Or Had In My Life! However What I Would Like To See Change Would Be The Food Because It's Not The Greatest Food But At Least Our School Has Food. The Amount Of Homework Students Get, And I Would Like To Have End Of The Year Field Trips.

I liked the ability to participate in music. I was able to participate in both orchestra and choir during my time at Andover. The teachers and administration do a great job at teaching and informing student about the expectations of the school. They all come from numerous collegiate backgrounds and experience that spreads wide the academia of Andover. I think the plethora of Ap and honors courses is very great and allows students to prepare with all levels of rigor.
I do think that our school needs more diversity. The school is almost all white, which takes away a key component to developing relationships with people of different culture and religion. I think Andover should open-enroll to all students who feel the want to attend Andover High School. Additionally, I think the school needs to add on to accommodate all these students who want to attend, but cannot because the school cannot physically hold many more students.
Andover High School was a great learning environment. The diversity was lacking to the point I attended most of my high school classes as the only non-white person. The food offered to students for lunch was the standard American diet with slight variations to attempt to give the idea of an "option." College readiness does not exist because the courses given are centered on how to duplicate the success you had K- 12 in a college classroom and that isn't realistic. The demands of attending college and the details individual to each person should be considered and a class catering to these particulars ought to be given. Academically the school performed above average but no where near some of the other surrounding high schools. When it comes to sports Andover has too many parents vying for their child to see success where they did not in life so the teams don't have great athletes. Just the spoon fed parents of entitled children.
