Graduation 2017

"A huge thank-you to Ms. Mardy Hendon and the entire faculty, staff and administration of Dawson Mountain Education Charter High School for the lovely graduation ceremony today. We are so thankful that our son was able to be a part of all that you are doing. You guys are doing a great work in lots of small but bustling places, and you're putting all your energy and heart into it -- the outcome has already been, and will continue to be, amazing." Lisa Jo Cash, Mother of Ben Cash, High Honor Graduate, Class of 2017

Upcoming Events
An Academic, Individualized, Evening High School

Mountain Education Charter High School (MECHS) is a collaborative effort of Elbert, Fannin, Forsyth, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Pickens, Rabun, Towns, Union, and White County School Systems. The MECHS collaborative organization also operates sites in Habersham and Stephens Counties. We are an academic, self-paced, individualized evening high school that serves students who are seeking a non-traditional school environment and who desire a Georgia high school diploma.

MECHS also serves students who need to make-up missed credit from their regular high school, enabling them to stay on academic track and graduate with their peers. 

MECHS is a year-round high school that offers all Georgia required curriculum courses as well as a variety of vocational courses and state-mandated testing.
