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.

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.

Ninth Grade Academy[edit]

The Upson-Lee Ninth Grade Academy opened in August 2011 and operates as a school within a school. ULHS ninth graders may 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. 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.


The Thomaston-Upson Board of Education has a Fine Arts Center located on the south side of the school and just east of the parking lots.
