Posted May 21, 2014

We moved to Andrews for my husbands job. My daughter is 14 years old and it in 8th grade. From the first day she was being bulling and another student. She had people tell her they don't like new kids. In class there are things said to her in front of the teachers and still nothing is being done. Things are being said about her that are untrue and mean. I would never wish any-other child be put in this situation. I beg you as a parent PLEASE do not let your child go to any Andrews ISD school!!!!!

I went to school here grades K-12. I have two kids of my own now and cannot fathom them going anywhere else. The schools here are one of the best things about Andrews. I am so blessed to be able to raise my family here.

Horrible school. I personally don't like it an I talk to the students an I could say that atleast 65% agree with me on this. Many teachers are very polite an respectful, but majority of the people in "charge" are ignorant idiotic people. Still don't take my word on it. See it for yourself.

Great school system! My kids do not attend school there now but will soon. My kids go to school in Seminole. It will make you realize how good Andrews schools are.

The teachers at Andrews High are generally excellent, but in no way will this school prepare a student for college.


Posted September 13, 2009

Andrews High School isn't just a school, its the community center. The teachers, students, and community are proud of the school and its history of success. Most of the student body is involve in some sort of extra extracurricular activities. The school may not be the best on test scores or at preparing kids for college, but it does well preparing kids for life. The school has an open, fun and ethnically diverse atmosphere that does things not possible in big city schools.

Great school and school district. Wide variety of extracurricular activities

I went to Andrews High School and was pleased with my overall knowledge that I learned. The programs were great and the teachers cared about the students. I would recommend this school to other students and/or parents.

Andrews High School is not a very good school. The school itself is old and run down. The faculty is similar. It does offer many classes, and the extracurricular activities are fine. The school has basically no security, which is inappropriate when you consider the school doubles as a fallout shelter. The school is strict on subjects they should be lenient on, and lenient on subject they should be strict on.
