EXPLORE ANDOVER

Welcome to the City of Andover,a thriving community of about 12,000 residents located in western Butler County. Andover is located east of Wichita and is part of the Wichita Metropolitan Area.

Andover is well-known for its park system and quality schools as well as its accessibility to nearby Wichita.  The bedroom community is lush with green space and is rated as exceptionally livable by AreaVibes.  This prosperous community has increased its population by more than 51 percent between 2000 and 2014, according to Sperling’s Best Places.

The Andover Community takes pride in its school system's academic excellence and progress to exceed local, state and NCLB goals. Although the district has seen considerable growth in the last decade, the Board of Education is committed to small schools and small class sizes. The district enjoys a partnership with Butler Community College that allows high school students the opportunity to earn college credit hours.

The cost of living in Andover, according to AreaVibes, is a mere 4 percent higher than the state’s average but is 4 percent lower than the national average. Given the location, this cost of living is very reasonable.
