All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Out-dated, & just plain don't care, tenured teachers hamper the learning of the students. As well as Administration personnel that have their own agendas.

Effingaham High School is an amazing school. The administration and teachers want their students to succeed. The band is avarage but good. The sports programs are starting to pick up. The football team is doing much better by going to the playoffs. Also, the volleyball team, tennis (boys and girls), golf (boys and girls), soccer, and other programs have winning records. I am a former student and athlet. The school is amazing for wanting its students to get a good education.

I totally disagree with what the last parent said. The administration is pretty good. The band is average. The sports over the past two years were outstanding. In 03 and 04 the football teams went to the playoffs and in 04 and 05 the basketball teams had winning records. The curriculum at the school is also very strong. Over all EHS is a good school. Listen to me, I'm a former student.

This is a good school. The principal is excellent and they work very hard to create a strong school learning environment. They have a strong band program, and good teachers. The sports at EHS are not very successful, however, they place a lot of empahasis on athletics.
