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.

March 3, 2020
On Monday, March 2, Governor Brian Kemp confirmed the first two cases of coronavirus within the state of Georgia. The Thomaston-Upson School System continues to be vigilant and proactive in our efforts to keep students and staff safe at school. We are closely monitoring information from the Georgia Department of Public Health (GA DPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak that originated in China, and we want to remind you of CDC recommendations for protection against viral infections:
- Staff and students should stay home when sick.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
- Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
Additional information is available at the Georgia Department of Public Health. Thank you for your support and for helping to keep our schools safe.
