Andover has a small town feel but just minutes away from shopping and restaurants in east Wichita. Most neighborhoods are very nice, upper class, which has some snobby people. Great place to raise a family. Good schools, safe , clean, several parks and a great YMCA for fitness and sports. Outdoor lovers can ride bikes around town safely or walk the dog on the Red Bud trail. Quiet and minimal traffic in the evenings.

Andover is a medium-sized town that is east of downtown Wichita. Having 2 high schools and numerous elementary schools, this town is very family-oriented and safe for children. With nothing too far of a drive, residents can easily run their errands close to their home, or if they wanted to, drive 15 minutes downtown for a bigger city experience.
I love the schools in Andover! I do wish they would remove the ban on pit bulls though. The police department is wonderful as well, as is the fire department. Most people you meet are very friendly, and are always willing to help others.
