The Lumpkin County School System, with its five schools and nearly 4,000 students, is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in North Georgia. Dahlonega, the county seat, is the site of the first Gold Rush in 1828. Although the Gold Rush has ended, the school system in Lumpkin County continues to mine the gold found in all its students.
Dahlonega is also home of the University of North Georgia, a great educational partner with the school system. And, the surrounding county of Lumpkin offers rich resources such as the Chestatee Regional Library System, cultural arts experiences, festivals, outdoor and recreational activities such as camping, hiking, biking, and historical attractions. (Some of the photos above, capturing just a few of these rich resources, are graciously provided by Jack Anthony , local photographer chronicling life in Dahlonega and surrounding areas.)
As a school system nestled in this unique setting, we are committed to working closely with the community. It is our aim to...
Hire, cultivate, and retain the most qualified, effective, and dynamic educators (leaders, teachers, and paraprofessionals);
Ensure that all students learn in effective standards-based classrooms;
Provide good stewardship of our human, financial, and material resources;
Forge strong and constructive ties between the schools, school system, and community.
Our Business is to Educate - Leading All Children to Success
The Lumpkin County School System has been awarded SACS-CASI district accreditation.
