Towns County Schools

The Towns County Comprehensive School is a unique school nestled in the foothills of Appalachia. Located about three miles east of Hiawassee, it has a beautiful view of Lake Chatuge and Brasstown Bald mountain. Approximately 925 students attend the school in grades pre-K through twelfth.

Aside from the scenic and peaceful atmosphere, TCCS enjoys a crime-free environment and very few discipline problems, a fact which contributes to a high-quality education. Iowa Test of Basic Skills scores are repeatedly among the highest in the state and above the national average. The percentage of graduates continuing their education is 90% and above. TCCS was recognized as a National Model School by the Jostens Learning Corporation for effective use of technologically enhanced learning. Students are introduced to computers as early as kindergarten with computers located in every classroom throughout the school. Through computer networking, students from K-12 have access to data from around the world through the Internet.

A two year liberal arts college, Young Harris was founded in 1886 through the efforts of a circuit-riding Methodist minister. Today students are drawn from over 100 counties in Georgia, from the southeast, and from foreign countries. Its graduates include Governor Zell Miller, former Commissioner of Industry and Trade, George Berry; the Georgia poet, Byron Herbert Reece, and others. The broad based, basic curriculum enables graduates to continue on to bachelors degrees and beyond. Extracurricular and athletic activities round out the educational experience of the 550 students.
