Andress High School is a great school. I know it has a bad rep, but if you physically attend the school yourself you will understand why I claim it is great. The teachers take the time to make sure you know the material, the staff is on making sure the students are doing fantastic, and the sports are outstanding! The school is old, so it does need some work.

Andress high school makes up for its poor facilities with the people who attend it. Everyone seems to be very fun, charismatic, and the teachers are amazing. Offers IB, DC, and AP classes and I will be graduating with almost all my basics done. Would like to see more funding towards fixing up the buildings however, and we still haven't made our promised fine arts building that was supposed to start in 2007.
Andress High School is an excellent school. From my experience at this school for the past four years have been awesome. Despite what everyone says about this school, its far from it. The teachers are very helpful just like the administration and faculty. The only change that i would like to see is more school spririt!
