When school is out, thousands of children must search for meals outside their school cafeteria – and too often these foods cannot be found at home. USDA’s Seamless Summer Nutrition Program bridges the gap by providing FREE meals to children in our area. Click the link above for more information.
The Telfair County School District is honored to announce that both Telfair County Middle School and Telfair County High School have been named as Georgia schools that “beat the odds in 2016.” This designation means that TCMS and TCHS performed better than statistically expected given various statistical factors, including poverty. In addition, TCHS was recognized for “beating the odds” for five consecutive years. TCHS was the only high school and one of only four total schools in our entire RESA district to achieve this impressive distinction. We would like to congratulate our administrators, faculty members, staff members, community supporters, and, of course, students for these outstanding achievements. Thanks to each of you for your unrelenting commitment to the “Pursuit of Excellence.”
The Telfair County School District is honored to announce that Telfair County Elementary School has been named a Reward School for 2017 by the Georgia Department of Education.

TCES was one of only four schools in our entire RESA district to achieve this impressive distinction. We would like to congratulate our administrators, faculty members, staff members, community supporters, and, of course, students for this outstanding achievement. Thanks to each of you for your unwavering commitment to the “Pursuit of Excellence.”
