Andover’s two traditional brick-and-mortar high schools fared well in rankings recently released by U.S. News & World Report.

Andover Central High School ranked 14th in Kansas, while Andover High School ranked 16th. The Andover schools were two of only three schools from southcentral Kansas included in the top 25.

“These rankings are a confirmation of what we see in our schools every day – quality educators working hard to create meaningful learning opportunities for our students,” Superintendent Brett White says. “We strive for excellence, one student at a time.”

The annual rankings are based on six indicators of school quality during the 2016-17 school year:

  • College readiness, based on the proportions of seniors who took and passed Advanced Placement and/or International Baccalaureate exams.
  • College curriculum breadth, based on proportions of seniors who took and passed AP and/or IB exams in multiple content areas.
  • Math and reading proficiency, based on state-required tests.
  • Math and reading performance, based on whether performance on state assessments exceeded expectations given the school’s proportion of underserved students.
  • Underserved student performance, based on how black, Hispanic and low-income students performed on state assessments compared with those who are not underserved in the state.
  • Graduation rates, based on the proportion of students who entered ninth grade in 2012-13 and graduated four years later.
