Excellence in Education...Every Individual, Every Day!
Welcome to Upson-Lee Primary
Upson-Lee Primary School teachers and staff members work very hard to meet the needs of all students and to ensure they achieve at their highest potential.
We offer an exceptional environment for learning where the youngest of students are encouraged to question, research, imagine, analyze, and discover. Our dedicated and skilled educators create excitement for core curriculum subjects as well as engage students in activities that teach respect for diversity, develop young leadership potential, and foster community and social responsibility.
Upson-Lee Primary School serves students in grades K-2 in a grade-center environment. The school features a fully-automated media center, computer and keyboarding labs, and an in-school television studio where students and staff produce daily news programs that are accessible to classrooms throughout the day via video streaming. All students receive instruction in computers, art, music, and physical education (better known as CAMP) in addition to core subjects. A Challenge program is available for gifted learners in grades 1 and 2.
ULSE is an innovator in utilizing technology to increase student engagement and learning. It was the first school in the U.S. to install Promethean’s ACTIVboard Collaborative Classroom systems in every classroom. In 2017, the school completed a 1:1 computing initiative, providing students with frequent, integral use of technology across the curriculum. Upson-Lee South is accredited by AdvancEd (SACS/CASI) and is Accredited with Quality by the Georgia Accrediting Commission.
2021-2022 School Supplies
The Thomaston-Upson School System has received federal funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and has made the decision to use these funds to purchase school supplies for all PK-12 Thomaston-Upson students for the 2021-22 school year. The school system is aware that the pandemic has created financial hardships for some of our families, and this is one way that we can help. All Thomaston-Upson students will receive their school supplies on the first day of school. (Parents will be responsible for providing a bookbag for their student, if needed.)
