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.”
Telfair County High School Beta Club attended the state conference in Savannah January 18-20. Forty members and four adults attended. Students competed in Agriculture, Senior Scholarship, Special Talent, Advertising, Painting, and Woodworking. Gavin Yawn placed 3rd in Woodworking with his custom pot turkey call. He is eligible to attend National Competition in Orlando this summer. Advisor, Brooka Hutcheson, would like to thank the administration, faculty, staff, and community for their support and commend the students on a great trip. All attendees would like to thank chaperones, Ennis Hart, Brenda Hart, and Brenda Shuman Riley for going with them to the convention.
Our mission is to prepare students to be productive members of society by fostering a caring environment with meaningful experiences and high expectations for all.
