Very bad school, to many students not enough teachers, communist like rules and majority of students are problem children from bad neighborhoods.
This school is GREAT! Much progress has been made due to the new leadership over the last two years. Academics, character education, and service learning are stressed throughout the year. The halls are clear during class times and students are respectful and hard-working. It is great to be at Andrews!
Andrews High School has one of the best academic programs around. The only problem with this school isn't the school system, IT'S THE KIDS! The kids don't challenge themselves to the extent that they are capable of achieve. I am a student and I am making straight A's. us as a community need to get our act together and help these kids understand the importance of education. Once they understand everything else will fall into place!
My oldest graduated from Andrews in 06. She will graduate from WCU in May with two bachelor degrees in four years. She will be attending the Univ. of Colorado for graduate studies in the fall. My middle son is at Andrews now. The problem isn't the school, the Guilford county school board is trying to destroy it.
This is my sons first year at Andrews and I am excited because he's gotten off to great start. The Aviation program is great too!
I actually attend Andrews and see everything that happens in the open and behind closed doors. Andrews has a horrible academic program. The teachers are there for the money and not to improve the students that go there. The few good teachers that we do/did have are slowly slipping away. if it were not for the Early College program I would definately not go there.
i am a student of t.wingate Andrews and i have to say that the school is not as bad as people try to make it seem!!! i mean theres fights now and again, and sometimes students fallout with teachers.... but what school dosent do that??? We are just an average school with a bad name because when the news get gossip .... they twist it and make it worse than it really is
I am a parent of Andrew High school student. This school may not have the supplies etc as the other parent said but it's definitely is not a 'Zoo'. Teachers are very dedicated and helpful.
I am a student at Andrews high school, and I beleive that people these days are blowing our school out of proportion. All that everyone focuses on is the negative factors of the school. Well, I beleive that they are totally wrong! This school may not be known for having a safe Environment, but if you were to spend a day at Andrews Hgh school, you would see that we are not the bunch of 'HOOLIGANS' mist people portray us as!
I'm not a parent I am a student at Andrews High and I feel that for these parents to put our school down and say that it's like a zoo,they need to take a closer look at Andrews. Although we do have students who may not want to learn and roam the halls, what school doesn't? Go into Andrews with a positive attitude and then look around at what you see. Andrews is actually a really great school. Don't believe what you may hear or see in the news.
I visited Andrews High School for a research project I am currently working on about the socio-economic gap, and how education is continually spreading this gap. Andrews was a perfect example of what occurs when school lines are carved into an area in order that the different social classes remain divided. This school is significantly low on supplies, and the statistics show that state test scores are very low.
This school is a zoo! Groups roaming the halls at all times of the day, students and non students. No dicipline, this is the school you always say portrayed as a big city problem school.
