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.

Andover is a town that many refer to as a "bedroom community". Being a suburb to Wichita, Andover is overlooked. The small public schools are very well kept up and have top notch school curriculum to get the students ready for higher education. The neighborhoods are towards the side of being higher end, but not overly expensive to where it is impossible to live there. Andover is a great little town to raise a family, being right outside of a grand city like Wichita, one is able to get the benefits of a large city while still being tucked away at the end of the day.
Andover is by far the best town I have ever lived in. With is being so close to Wichita every thing you could possibly need is only a short drive around. Even though most things are already in Andover. Andover is always having new building and entertainment centers being built. Andover also has a huge variety of restraunts and fast food for every single craving you could possibly imagine. The roads are under construction pretty frequently but it is worth it because all of the roads are so amazing along with the rest of the infrastructure. The shining jewel of the Andover community is the amazing school systems along with the immense sense of interconnection and community. I always feel safe no matter where I go in Andover. Overall I absolutely love Andover.
