Welcome to

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. Virgil Powers, a civil engineer for the railroad. The most famous employer in Fort Valley, as well as one of the largest, is Blue Bird -- founded in 1927. The Read More...
TSA Attends Board of Education Meeting

Technology Student Association at the Board of Education Meeting

PCHS TSA had the chance to showcase what they were about during a recent BOE meeting this month.  As part of the STEM presentation that was done by Dr. Mathis, two officers of our PCHS TSA chapter presented to the board members, members of the community, and State Rep. Patty Bentley.  If not for the chance meeting with Mr. Jamie Johnson, chairman of the board, during a recent carwash fundraiser, people in the community would not have learned that our club exists in our high school.  Although TSA has been in existence for more than 50 years in Georgia, this would be our 3rd year here in PCHS.

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.

The PCHS FFA Agriculture Communication team placed first in the Area III contest and will advance to the state contest February 7, 2015 held at FVSU. Team Members consisted of Madison Watson (Area High Individual), Victoria Klingler (4th High Individual), and Kaitlyn Roberts. 

Additionally, the Farm Business Management team placed second in the Area III contest and will advance to the state contest on December 6, 2014 at ABAC in Tifton. Team members included Juliana Crews, Lucouis Hodges, Miranda Taylor, and Claire Story.

Finally, Travis Tingler (9th grade) competed against 33 other students in the Area III FFA Quiz contest, which consisted of a multiple choice exam over parliamentary procedure, FFA history, and state leadership knowledge. Travis placed 2nd overall and will also advance to the state contest held in conjunction with the Farm Business Management CDE at ABAC next month. 

Of course, advancing to the state contest will provide us an opportunity to possibly advance to the National FFA Convention next October. Also, we were the only school that placed top two in all three events that were held. This is a major milestone for our chapter and for our kids! Great things are happening to dedicated and hardworking students at PCHS!
