West Elementary & Shawsheen PreK School Building Project
Construction of the new West Elementary and Shawsheen Preschool is underway. With the oversight of the West Elementary and Shawsheen Preschool Building Committee, construction of the new schools is expected to take about two years, after which the current school will be demolished and playing fields and parking areas installed in its place. West El students and staff will be welcomed into their new school in August of 2024 for the start of the school year. Shawsheen students and staff will be welcomed to their new school the following August.

Andover High School Facility Study Committee
The Andover High School Facility Study Committee was formed in January 2017 and has been conducting a preliminary feasibility study with the architecture firm HMFH. The Study Committee has developed many options for improvements at Andover High, ranging from $7 million worth of safety and security upgrades to over $200 million for a new school building.
More information on the AHS Facility Study Committee, including minutes and agendas, can be found here.
For both of these projects, community feedback is critical. Meetings of both committees are open to the public and notifications are posted to the Town of Andover website.
Meetings are also videotaped and can be viewed from the Andover TV website.
