Coming Soon: New Student Information System

Thomaston-Upson is currently in the process of migrating to a new web-based student information system (SIS) -- Infinite Campus. Infinite Campus is used by thousands of school districts across the United States. They currently manage data for over 7.3 million students in 44 states and are the largest American-owned SIS provider. The Infinite Campus platform allows school districts to streamline student administration, enable stakeholder collaboration, and individualize instruction. T-U faculty and staff received professional training on using Infinite Campus prior to the start of the 2016-17 school year, and teachers have begun using the system to take attendance and post grades. Parents and students will soon receive log-in information for their respective accounts. The goal is to have all student and parent accounts set up by the end of August. Until that time, any parent needing information about student grades or attendance may contact his/her child’s school.

Welcome to 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.

“I have been blessed to have so many positive people influence the direction of my life. I often recall a conversation  with my former high school basketball coach, John Thrower. When I graduated from college, I thanked him for presenting me with a graduation gift. His response was, 'Don't thank me now. I want you to continue to do the right thing and to help someone else in your life.' I often think of that conversation and try to repay him each day by helping or by being kind to someone else. Being in education is all about helping people, and that's exactly what I want to do.”
