Andrean High School provided you with small class sizes. There were teachers ready and willing to help you succeed. There were some administrative challenges during by time at Andrean. The staff at Andrean needs extensive diversity training. Students of all backgrounds should feel welcome at school everyday. the facilities need some serious updating. There is no air conditioning in the summer and the heating system is very inadequate. There is some parent involvement, but I believe that a PTA would be very helpful. Andrean needs to improve on the communication with the parents and students concerning changes that may effect a child's education. The cafeteria and the lunch staff is the best. Food choices are very satisfying.
Andrean is a great school that prioritizes excellences. Whether it is academics, sports, theater, or academic teams, Andrean expects you to excel at whatever you do. The teachers are passionate about what they do. The courses are challenging, but you learn a lot and are really prepared for college. Andrean is not your average private school.
