Peach County High School

Located in the heart of central Georgia, Peach County, our 161st county, was created from parts of Houston and Macon counties in 1924. Named for the area's abundant peach crop, Peach County is Georgia's newest and geographically one of the smallest counties (151 sq. miles) in Georgia. Fort Valley was established as a trading post in the early 1820's by James A. Everett and incorporated as a city in 1856. Byron, like many other towns, grew up around a railroad. The community was a flag-stop known as "Number One and One-Half Station." The town was incorporated in 1874 and named for Lord Byron, the English poet. The village of Powersville was first named Station One when the Southwestern Railroad was being built from Macon to Albany in 1852. Then its more suitable name was given in honor of Col.

PCHS Choir Attends King’s Dominion Festival

On Friday, May 8th, the Peach County High School Choir earned the King's Dominion Festival of Music's highest ratings of "superior", and also first place in class. King's Dominion, a theme park located in Doswell, VA hosts their music festival annually, inviting high and middle school choirs and bands from all over the country to compete for the highest scores and earnings. Each festival ends with an awards ceremony, where winners from all competing groups are announced. The Peach County High School Choir, under the direction of Mr. Quahnkatiere Marshall, competed with 30 students from the program and hopes to continue competing nationally and soon, internationally. Most major theme parks in the United States offer similar participation in music festivals, and the PCHS Choir is no stranger to performing at the highest level. 4 years ago, they earned the "Trill's and Thrills" Music Festival of Six Flags over Georgia's highest ratings of "superior". The PCHS Choir would like to thank the community for their continued dedication and support, and look forward to future events with our students.


Georgia Department of Education Announces New Testing System

June 4, 2014 – The Georgia Department of Education will implement a new testing system, the Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) during the 2014-2015 academic year. The new system will replace both the CRCT and the EOCT.

Georgia Milestones will be aligned to the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) and will require more from students than the CRCT and EOCT it replaces, in order to better prepare students for college and career and to provide a more realistic picture of academic progress. A major benefit of the new system is that it is one consistent testing program across grades 3-12, whereas previously students took a series of individual tests.
