Andover High School was a good school itself. A good environment with great teachers and staff. The athletic department was also great! My biggest problem was the academic levels. It was not challenging enough and it didn't prepare me enough for college. The rules and regulations of the school were too strict for my liking. I ended up doing PSEO my junior and senior year instead of attending classes at the high school. Andover was also very organized with all their activities such as the school dances, talent shows, and other extra curricular activities.

Coming from a busy and lower income community to the complete opposite environment, I can definitely see many differences. The education over here is at a higher level. They really push us to ensure a great education and help us prepare for college. Andover High School has many great resources to help struggling students. They have an after school program called "Husk Hut" in the library for students to connect with teachers for help, make-up test, or simply use the school's many other resources. Many other teachers also make time for students in their classroom. If you choose to stay after school, miss the bus to get home, and don't have a ride home, they have a second set of buses that leaves around 5 P.M. which gives students about 3 hours after school to do what you need. Andover school also has a lot of clubs, activities, and clubs anyone can easily get involved in. This makes it easy to meet new people and feel the school spirit. Although it starts very early, it's amazing here.
Andover High School provides lot's of opportunities for involvement and school spirit is also demonstrated through events like pep fests organized by the student council and staff. Many wonderful teachers. When I was a freshmen ( year 2016-2017), currently a senior, the communication within the school wasn't the best for me. I never knew there was a freshmen orientation till I was a senior being apart of Link Crew which is a group of seniors demonstrating leadership. If I knew there was a option for freshmen orientation, if connection with or among students/classmates was better, I have a feeling my freshmen experiences would've been more guided. But as the years go by, I can see the school improving in many areas, esp. communication and diversity. I start to see the changes that are being made by students and staff as the years go by.
