Welcome to Andover Regional!
Andover Regional is located in the heart of scenic Sussex County, New Jersey. Our school district was originally formed in 1953 as the Andover Consolidated School District. Andover Regional provides its students a highly qualified staff of certified teachers, administrators, and educational services personnel as well as a skilled support staff of secretaries, maintenance, custodians, paraprofessionals, aides, and substitute teachers. Our Board of Education is comprised of nine members representing both Andover Borough and Andover Township.
Students in grades K, 1, 2, 3, 4 attend the Florence M. Burd School and students in grades 5, 6, 7, 8 attend the Long Pond School. Our grade 8 graduates attend neighboring Newton High School through a longtime sending/receiving relationship with the Newton Public Schools.
