Welcome to Upson-Lee Elementary School

Upson-Lee Elementary School serves scholars in grades 3-5 in a grade center environment. A well-organized and dedicated teaching staff is supported by administrators and instructional coaches. Educators monitor all scholars to ensure that their learning is progressing on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis. Common planning times allow teachers to discuss strategies across subjects, compare best practices, and target problems quickly and effectively.

In addition to the core academic courses, scholars receive instruction in music, art, and physical education. Scholars may audition for the ULE chorus, which has been recognized at the regional and state levels. A Challenge program is available for accelerated learners.

In 2017, the school completed a 1:1 computing initiative, providing students with frequent, integral use of technology across the curriculum. Upson-Lee Elementary is accredited by AdvancEd (SACS/CASI) and is Accredited with Quality by the Georgia Accrediting Commission.
