A demographic study was conducted in October 2017 by Cropper GIS, an outside company with expertise in school population projection. Information from that report was used to set a target enrollment for Andover High School construction at 1,900 students.
The report can be found on the Andover High School Facility Study Committee project website.  Cropper GIS presented its report for discussion at a Tri-Board (School Committee, Finance Committee and Board of Selectmen) meeting on November 9, 2017, and that replay can be found in the Andover TV archives.
Cropper GIS intends to update its projections as new demographic data, including Andover school enrollment numbers, become available: at this time, however, the target capacity for the high school remains at 1,900 students.
 The Cropper GIS Demographic Report is on the AHS FSC website: http://www.aps1.net/1932/Data-and-Presentations
