The Georgia High School Association announced Tuesday the reclassification of all member schools.
Metter High School, with an enrollment of 500, will move from AA back to A.
Metter, one of the smaller schools in AA now, competes with schools with a much larger enrollment. Moving to A, Metter High will be one of the larger schools in that classification.
Class A, with 86 schools in the public division and 53 in the private division, is the largest classification.
Metter will again be classed with longtime rivals ECI, Claxton and Jenkins County. Dublin is also moving to A, while Vidalia, Toombs County, Swainsboro and Jeff Davis will remain AA.
Schools are reclassified every two years by enrollment. Metter will move to A classification in 2020.
