This is the best school I have ever seen the teachers are the best in the country,and you will not find a better staff. My daughter went to the early college in the 9th grade she is in the 10th grade now and she has told me that she is learning more at Andrews High School than she did at the early college and she loves it here .' I think they have the best schools in the country here. Thank You Mr Jack Pierce (Andrews)
