Andover Public Schools Reviews
I love being at school a lot, there are great kids there and there are very nice teachers. The only problem I had with the system was the amount of work that we get is insane due to our schedule and the amount of tests we have in a day. It was all very complicated of sorts. Another thing is that some teachers, like an art teacher, has many microaggressions towards students who were not Caucasian which made me feel very uncomfortable. Other than that, I would say that all the teacher want you to succeed and will help you if you reach out to them. The amount of academic freedom there is immense and it lots of after school activities that can suit your needs, and if there isn’t any you can always make it yourself!
The teachers are great and very helpful if you actively engage with them and ask for help. The school is definitely lacking in diversity but they try their best to support different groups and clubs. From graduated students, I have been told that our school especially prepared them for the college experience. The popularity and productiveness of clubs fluctuate through the years but generally, there are some good ones that people can fit into. The food is average but has been getting better and the snack shack makes up for any inconveniences with the regular food.
My education in the Andover Public school system was phenomenal. My early years were superb but once I hit 6th grade race became a major issue I started noticing. I'm an African-American woman and throughout middle school I often had teachers make ignorant assumptions about me, rude comments and show extreme bias. In high school, Andover High spent a great deal of time trying to figure out every single issue with race, sexuality and religion down to the last "micro-aggression."What I want to see change is exactly that. Teachers are too focused on not offending a student by saying the wrong thing that they get lost in it and become "color blind." They do not in anyway celebrate race and differences, they pretend it doesn't exist and that everyone is the same. That is the only thing I want to see change in the coming years. Like every high school it has its smaller issues but overall, the education is excellent and I am strongly confident that I am ready for college.
