Andover schools take pride in their academic excellence and progress to exceed local, state and national goals. Our tradition of excellence is evident in our National Merit Finalists and Semi-Finalists, continually higher-than-state-average ACT scores, state championships in athletics and activities, and regional and national recognitions awarded to programs and staff. Andover's staff and administration are focused on helping each student succeed.

Andover Public Schools holds high expectations for students and staff. Our success is evident in the many awards and recognitions staff receives. Andover's current and previous educators have won recognitions such as induction into the National Teachers Hall of Fame, Kansas Teacher of the Year, Kansas Teacher of the Year finalists and semi-finalists, Kansas Master Teacher, Kansas History Teacher of the Year and many more.

The district enjoys a partnership with Butler Community College that allows high school students the opportunity to earn college credit hours. The district also participates in the Butler County Special Education Interlocal #638 and the South Central Kansas Education Service Center. Our methodical approach to Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) ensures each student receives the help they need to be successful. ‚Äč

The Andover Center for Advanced Professional Studies allows high school juniors and seniors to explore career interests through mentorships, internships and completing real-world projects. This program has helped our soon-to-be graduates create their post-high-school path, saving them time, money and frustration in their next steps after graduation.

All of this has contributed to the success of Andover Public Schools.
