I don't know how much this has changed since the opening of the new Andover High School, but when I went to Anoka High School, it was overcrowded. With a capital O.

The school was built for about 2200 students or so, and we had crammed in around 3000 of 'em, into portable classrooms, study halls held in the lunch room, and passing times of ten minutes not being nearly enough time if you wanted any hope of getting from one side of the school to the other and go to the bathroom and visit your locker to get some books. It was like a giant fire hazard waiting to happen.

But for all the overcrowdedness, the school had some great things going for it. Of course it had the school spirit, which most schools have. There was Revolution, a great group to help bring the issues of diversity to the attention of a school where diversity really wasn't that prominent, plenty of sports to satisfy all the jocks, and of course my beloved PSEO program, which allowed me, when I got sick of being stuffed like a sardine in a too small tin can, to go to college while still a high school student.

Text books were a bit out of date, I think our history books in 2000 were from 1992...

Nobody really ate the school lunch because, well, nobody does. There was the DECA mart, where we could buy sugary goodness and pencils and pens, as well as sweatshirts and mittens from the business group of our school.

It had it's good points, and I'd say they outweighed the bad.

PROS: big, PSEO, AP classes, honors, Revolution
CONS: overcrowded, too few buses, old textbooks
