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...
Band Students Selected to UGA High School 2015 All-Star Band

Peach Co. HS Band Students Selected for UGA High School 2015 All-Star Band

    Four Peach County High School Band students were chosen by the UGA Band staff to participate in their 65th Annual High School All-Star Band known as "Janfest", January 22-25, 2015. Pictured above from left to right, the students were Emmanuel Lopez - clarinet; Brandi Flanders - trumpet; Shelby Gant - bass clarinet and Brandon Matthews - Percussion. These students were chosen based upon Band Director Mr. Darren Johnson's recommendation, instrumentation need of the bands, and musical achievements/accomplishments of the students. Typical festival attendance is approximately 1000 band students from 130 high schools.

    During this four day event, students are ranked and placed in one of the eight festival bands on the basis of an initial audition upon arrival. Emanuel earned 12th chair in the fourth band, Brandi earned 2nd chair in the fourth band. Shelby earned 1st chair in the second band. Brandon earned 5th chair in the second band.  The bands rehearse several times before a final performance on the final afternoon of the event. The students attended performances by guest high school bands and UGA ensembles. In addition, the students attended workshops taught by UGA professors.

   


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.
