First of all, both of my kids never had any issues with going to the bathroom or using water fountain and both of them drink and use bathroom a lot :) We have moved to this school from MD where my daughter was at the top of her class in reading and math. When we got here we realized that there are a lot of kids who actually love reading and math/sciences and my daughter noticed she was not the top performer...which was great as she wanted to move up in class and be on the same levels as her new friends. I will add that I heard the same feedback from people who moved from Illinois and California. This school recognizes that kids are at different levels and caters education to various learning levels. It can be challenging even for bright kids. So far we loved all of our teachers. The only concern we have is class size at 4th and 5th grade levels as it's over 30 kids. Parents also get very involved and volunteer a lot. The school through Ada district offers access to online programs for children to enhance there learning at home if desired.

My son has had issue's going to the restroom and getting a drink. He comes home all the time almost wetting his pants (and has a couple of times) and really thirsty, sometimes dehydrated. He says he's not aloud to get drinks or use the restroom when he asks. That is a problem for me.

Andrus is unique in many ways. It has one of the two "Gifted & Talented" self-contained programs in the West Ada school district. It also has an incredible "special needs" program. Andrus is also one of the few schools in the district to offer orchestra (4th & 5th grade). The teachers are overall exceptional. They genuinely care and want to be there. The administration has had some turn-over the past 4 years but, things seem to still be running smoothly. The best thing about Andrus? THE MUSIC PROGRAM is extraordinary. Included in the music program is the opportunity for the kids to join an "honor choir" (4th & 5th grades). The honor choir sings at multiple city wide events including at The Christmas Tree Lightning Ceremony at the Capitol Building. It is a very unique opportunity. Is the parking lot too small and a complete mess especially after school? Absolutely. Would I still suggest you send your kids to Andrus despite the parking debacle? Most certainly.

Clickish for sure... Teachers have the same perception. Excellent PTO. Excellent after school programs and activities.
