Unifying, Leading, Helping, Succeeding...Every Day

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.

  • Congratulations 1st Semester Goal Card Recipients!

    Upson-Lee High School and West Central Georgia Bank, a Partner In Education with the Thomaston-Upson School System, have proudly recognized Goal Card recipients. These sophomores, juniors, and seniors earned a grade of “A” at ULHS in every course during the second semester of the 2018-2019 school year. (Freshmen are not eligible for the West Central GA Bank GOAL Card until they have completed one full semester at Upson-Lee High School.)

    Now in its 28th year, the West Central Georgia Bank GOAL Card program was implemented in support of the new Thomaston-Upson School System and in support of academic achievement for all Upson-Lee High School students. West Central Georgia Bank provides these all “A” students with a student identification GOAL card, which allows them free admission to all ULHS regular home athletic events for an entire semester.

    ULHS Principal Dr. Jarvis Price stated, “The administrators, faculty, and staff at Upson-Lee High School would like to thank Mr. Eddie Rogers for his continued support of this important educational achievement program. The West Central Georgia Bank GOAL Card is the longest running recognition program in the Thomaston-Upson School System, having been implemented in 1992, the year that Upson-Lee High School opened its doors. I want to congratulate these young people for their outstanding academic accomplishments.”

    In addition to free admission to ULHS athletic events, GOAL Card holders receive special offers and/or discounts from a variety of local businesses, which are printed on the back of the GOAL Card. West Central Georgia Bank and ULHS would like to thank these businesses for their participation in the GOAL program and for their commitment to quality education in our local public school system: Aviano’s, Belk of Thomaston, Country Cupboard, English’s Corner Café, French Kiss Boutique, Game Castle, La Fiesta Restaurant, Mac’s Grill, Serendipity, The Pie, and Tire & Auto Master.

    Upson-Lee High School would like to again congratulate our students and extend a special thank you to these participating businesses and to West Central Georgia Bank!
