The upson lee middle school to me is a great school of fun and oppurtunity. this school for me has been a blaast.all my teachers were great. And i hate to say it i dont really want to leave. but i have too. ill be a freshmen in high school in the year 2007 ulms will always have qa place in my heart. we even made history while i was there. We were the first 8th graders to win all the pep-rallies.

Well I am not a parent, but I used to be a student at Upson Lee Middle School and now I have moved up in the high school. Now that I am there, I realize how much ULMS helped me with everything. They taught me so much in math. They have some of the greatest teachers. Every time I needed help, they were there to help me through everything. They all have a very warming attitude. The academic programs are great. They teach you everything you need to know in high school. In fact, some of the things I am learning in high school now, I have learned in middle school. ULMS prepares you for the rest of your life. Every child should at least have music and art once in their 3 years of middle school. I enjoyed both. My mom was involved in everything I did in school.

Patsy Dean is an excellent administrator. She holds high her morals and values and it is seen clearly in her teachers, as well as students.

An absolutely fabulous lead school. Mrs. Dean runs a tight ship and should be recognized for it. Biggest disappointment is parent involvement, but that is true for the entire county.
