    Andover has to be one of the best schools in Minnesota we lead our district with the highest test results excellent staff and a student body that prides itself by showing respect and class. The school has brought up great sports teams sending teams and individuals to state competitions every year. The music program is one of the most comprehensive in the extremely challenging district with multiple all-state musicians and 'best at site' awards. Overall this school has given me the best oppurtunities I could possible ask for and get.

    Andover High School is a wonderful school. I am very impressed with their extra activities after school. Kids can be involved with sports clubs and extra classes. The teachers are always willing to help and will go to any length to see the kids succeed.
