Welcome Back 2019!

Hello and Welcome to Coffee High School, Home of the Trojans!


The 2019-20 school is here, and the staff is eager to get the school year underway. The theme throughout the school year is Engage, Connect, and Encourage. The goal and intent of the staff at Coffee High is for every student to have a great high school experience. We want our students to be part of something, to connect with someone, and feel Coffee High is a place that started them on a path to success.  This school year we have fully implemented the Positive Behavioral Intervention System (PBIS). Through this system, we will focus on the reinforcement and recognition of positive behaviors. This will include, being respectful, responsible, and building positive relationships. Furthermore, as part of our five-year strategic plan, we are also in year one of the implementation of Career Themed Academies.  This initiative will assist students with becoming more intentional about a career path. This is done through a personal assessment of interest and skills. Students will take certain courses that will be geared toward their chosen career paths. College visits, industry-related field trips, student internships, and guest speakers will be part of this process. This process will be completed with a job shadowing experience and a capstone project.


A review of last year will show that Coffee High School produced 22 Advanced Placement Scholars, 35 Zell Miller recipients, and a graduation rate of almost 90 percent. Coffee High School continues to maintain a great relationship with South Georgia State College and Wiregrass Technical College. Through these relationships, Coffee High students are able to participate in dual enrollment programs that allow them to earn college credit. This relationship allows many of our students to get a great start in college or their careers.


Our extra-curricular and co-curricular programs are robust and dynamic. Our sports teams compete at a high level,  and many of our teams made deep runs in the state playoffs. Students in our CTAE programs won regional and state-level competitions. The 2018-19 school was a great year for the Coffee Trojans,  and the 2019-20 school year will be one of great expectations. Please visit this site regularly to stay abreast of all that is going on at Coffee High School. Do not hesitate to contact any of our staff if you have questions or concerns, “It’s Great to be a Trojan!”


Best regards,
