Posted Date: 09/01/2015

Andover students annually produce exceptional results in the classroom. The district's 2015 graduates recorded a composite score of 23.7, which is 1.8 above the state average. Historically, Andover Public Schools has had the highest composite score of any public school district in the Wichita-metro area.

"Along with a high composite score, our students recorded a 24.1 reading score which is our highest ever and 1.7 higher than the state average,” says Greg Rasmussen, Superintendent of Schools. “The foundation we have established, collaboration between teachers and our commitment to continuous improvement and education innovation are making a tremendous difference for our students.”

The ACT is a college entrance exam that tests English, reading, math and science. Three hundred forty-two Andover Public School 2015 graduates took the ACT. Andover students continue to annually record composite scores one to two points above the state average.

"Our results on the ACT are  one of the many things we have to be proud of,” says Rasmussen. “Andover has an incredible staff, dedicated Board of Education and an extremely supportive community. Without their passion for our students, we could not continue to excel in the classroom, on the playing field and the performance stage."
