Andress High School is a public high school located on the northeast side of El Paso, Texas. The school serves about 2,000 students in the El Paso Independent School District. It is located in the Sun Valley neighborhood[1] at the intersection of Sun Valley Drive and Mackinaw Street. Andress High is currently the northernmost of EPISD's ten comprehensive high schools, serving the portion of Northeast El Paso between the Franklin Mountains and McCombs Street and north of Woodrow Bean Transmountain Road (Texas Loop 375) west of Girl Scout Way and Fairbanks Drive east of it, up to the New Mexico state line. Virtually all of the northern half of the Andress attendance zone, that is, north of Loma Real Avenue, is undeveloped land, most of it slated for future residential development. A new high school, as yet unnamed, which will serve what is now the portion of the Andress attendance zone north of the Patriot Freeway (US 54) to the New Mexico state line, is in the planning stages.

Andress High's feeder schools include Charles, Richardson and Terrace Hills Middle Schools; the elementary schools in the Andress feeder pattern include Barron, Bradley, Collins, Fannin, Tom Lea, Newman, and Nixon.[2]

Andress High was named for local attorney and school board member Theodore A. (Ted) Andress, who was murdered at the El Paso airport by a mentally unbalanced man he had been feuding with just before the school opened in 1961.[3]
