T Wingate Andrews is a public magnet high school, serving grades 9-12. Andrews is home to the GCS Aviation Academy and Early College of Health Sciences. The current building was opened in 1968 and is named after Thomas Wingate Andrews (1882-1937) who served as the superintendent of High Point schools. Over the last 15+ years, Tamekia has worked with the leadership, student support and attendance teams to foster academic excellence and a growth mindset in an equitable environment to prepare graduates to be responsible citizens.
The Student of Character breakfasts observe students who display excellence in character traits (self-discipline, responsibility, perseverance, respect, kindness, integrity an courage.) Students are nominated by a teacher and invited to celebrate with their families.
College Tours students are invited to participate in college tours across the Triad and surrounding areas. During the tours, students learn about degree programs, financial aid, campus life, and so much more. Guilford County Schools offers an after-school Learning Hub at Andrews to help students improve academics, prepare for EOC tests, recover course credits and engage in enrichment activities.
Guilford County Health & Human Services offers Smart Girls Workshops for 6 - 8 sessions to educate and empower young women to provide information and skills necessary to develop healthy relationships and make smart decisions throughout life.
