Welcome to Upson-Lee High School
Upson-Lee High School is a secondary school in Thomaston, Georgia, United States. It is the only high school in Upson County. It is a combination of the former R. E. Lee Institute and Upson High School, both previously located in Upson County. Upson-Lee High School serves approximately 1200 students in grades 9-12 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 State College and Southern Crescent Technical College. The school offers eighteen varsity sports along with academic teams and clubs.
Upson-Lee High School faculty and staff create a school culture that encourages students to engage in authentic learning experiences, engage in service-based learning, develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, develop their leadership skills, and foster community and social responsibility. Our success in maximizing our students’ academic and athletic abilities is assisted by our Partners-In-Education (PIE), Boosters, and School Council.

Digital Library Cards; Just in time for summer!In partnership with Hightower Memorial Library and Pine Mountain Library System, ULHS encourages ALL students to have a digital library card. Incoming 9th graders and new students are to use a new procedure to sign up for the digital library card. Face-to-face students have already received their cards, and current ULHS students who are remote leaners can pick up their digital library cards from the high school's media center.The digital card allows the free use of many different magazines, ebooks, audiobooks, reference sites, and applications. There are never any late fines or fees associated with digital materials, and items can be downloaded to a device for use when an internet connection is unavailable.Parents and teachers are also eligible to get their own digital library card using the same procedure. With summer upon us, it's time to encourage everyone to relax and enjoy a great book. As summer reading loss is a key factor contributing to the achievement gap between struggling and successful students, let's all commit to read; to yourself, to brothers, to sisters, and to our children!Upson-Lee High School
