  • T. Wingate Andrews High School is a public magnet high school in High Point, North Carolina. The school opened in 1968 with Samuel E. Burford as its first principal. Andrews was built specifically to follow the federal mandate to integrate the races in the United States, and Burford's selection was notable as he was African American. Students were drawn from the former William Penn High School (now Penn-Griffin School for the Arts) and High Point Central High School. It was named after Thomas Wingate Andrews (1882-1937), who served as superintendent of High Point schools.

    Andrews is home to the Aviation Academy and the Early College of Health Sciences. The school enrolls students in grades 9 through 12, follows the traditional school calendar, and runs on a daily schedule of 4 blocks (classes of 90 minutes each). Students have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement course work and exams. The school has been designated to receive additional support, resources, and incentives as a federal Title I school.

    The current principal is Darell Baker, formerly the assistant principal of T. Wingate Andrews High. Mr. Baker started the position July 1, 2023.
