Upson-Lee High School

Upson-Lee High School serves 1284 students with a diverse and challenging selection of academic and elective courses, advanced placement and honors programs, sixteen CTAE (Career, Technical and Agriculture Education) pathways, Navy JROTC, and dual enrollment with Gordon College and Southern Crescent Technical College. The school offers sixteen varsity sports along with academic teams and clubs.

 The Upson-Lee Ninth Grade Academy opened in August 2011 and operates as a school within a school. The academy allows ULHS ninth graders to take their core academic courses within this smaller learning community. Highly qualified teachers work closely with one another to ensure that all ninth graders are mastering the demands of the rigorous, college-prep curriculum embodied in the Georgia Performance Standards. In addition, U-L Ninth Grade Academy offers courses and support initiatives at all levels to ensure that academy students are successful and on-track to graduate at the end of this crucial first year of high school. 

 At ULHS, highly-qualified and dedicated teachers inspire students to engage in learning activities and behaviors that increase knowledge and skills, develop leadership, promote social responsibility, and ignite a passion for life-long learning. The work of the students, faculty, and staff is supported by a School Council, Athletics Boosters, Band Boosters, a number of program-specific booster organizations, and an active Partner-In-Education (PIE) program.  

 Upson-Lee High School is fully accredited by the AdvancED (SACS/CASSI) and is accredited with quality by the Georgia Accreditation Commission. ULHS students have been recognized at the regional, state, and national levels for excellence in academics, fine arts, athletics, and extra-curricular activities.
