Honestly, I have loved my time at Andrew High School! I think the best part about Andrew is that students are really able to foster connections with the teachers there, and the teachers truly do go out of their way to make sure that every student's needs are met. Especially, at Andrew, they really value the importance of making sure you know that all resources are available to you whenever you need them and that all doors are open if you are willing to learn. The center, a place where students can be tutored by other students/teachers who are proficient in the course material, is a great resource, as is the Student Success Specialist who help students finish their college applications and makes scholarship opportunities known. Overall, the atmosphere is very positive and you can see that there is truly a community who values learning and the aspect of a family.

Hi I am Josh Kirnbauer and I am a High School senior and Victor J. Andrew. My High school experience as of right now has been unbelievable because of the this Andrew has done to myself as a person. I have developed skills that other school just cant compete with. Everything about the school is perfect because we are definitely the top academic school in my opinion. If theres one school that I would recommend to go to it would be VJA. If you ever need help or struggle with something, someone is always there by your side helping you throughout the way. Thats why the school makes High School so fun because they do everything right which makes all the students content!
I am a parent who has had 3 children go through VJA. All have told me they love going to the school. They have been each been involved in multiple activities while at the school. There are so many one cannot participate in them all! All my kids got accepted into every college they applied to, so the school's academics really prepare the kids well. I am an involved parent and I do wish more parents got involved with their kids groups as volunteers. It seems to be the same core group of parents all the time. Mr. Noting is great and the administration does their best. I see how much money is spent per student, so I wish they would not ask for so many fundraisers. Our taxes are exceptionally high in Cook County! Overall a great school.
