Oconee County High School

“Home of the Warriors”
1992-Present Day

In August of 1992, the Oconee County School System opened the doors to a new and modern high school facility. Led by Mr. Sammy Sanders, School Superintendent, Mr. Tony Dukes, Principal, and Jerry L. Studdard, Board of Education Chair, Oconee County High School began a new journey towards becoming what is now known as one of the top ten high schools academically and athletically in Georgia.

Oconee County had grown in population in the late 1980s and early 1990s, creating the need for a larger and more modern facility to house student growth. A state of the art facility, Oconee County High School has the modern classroom technology to complement an excellent faculty, staff, and student body.

Some of the watermarks from this excellent student body include Charles Mathis, who graduated from the University of Georgia a week before walking in his Oconee royal blue cap and gown. Melissa Bugbee was the first graduate to score a perfect 1600 on the SAT. Heather Mispagel was a Stockholm Junior Water Prize National Science Champion. Tony Taylor, who recently signed a professional football contract, is the first Oconee graduate to become a professional athlete. These outstanding individuals comprise a small part of a very impressive list of accomplishments.

In the past 15 years, Oconee High School has honored 22 academic/fine arts state champions, 11 athletic state team champions, 8 state players of the year, and 8 high school athletic All-Americans. In our vocational area, we have achieved 33 team state champions and over 54 individual state champions.

Once upon a time, Oconee County School System was a rural, vocational-driven system. Now it ranks at the top of the list academically, vocationally, and athletically. This excellence is due to the community and its expectations. Without a doubt, it’s great to be an Oconee Warrior!
