    Students:  You will be able to access your 16/17 schedule via Student Portal and Parent Portal on Thursday, July 28th at 6:00 pm.  If you do not have a portal account, please see Ms. Kay Powell at kpowell@effingham.k12.ga.usand she will help you set up an account. 


    Students requesting a schedule change must complete a Drop/Add form which can be accessed on the portal or on the counselors' web site (must be emailed or hand delivered to a counselor).  As a reminder, requested schedule changes will be honored for true errors; for example, when a required class for graduation is not on the student’s schedule, when a student has already received credit for a class on the schedule, etc.   Approved reasons for schedule changes are on the Drop/Add form.   Counselors cannot change schedules to accommodate specific teacher or specific class period requests.  To ensure counselors have time to review each drop/add request, students may only submit one drop/add form during the drop/add time frame.  The last day to submit a drop/add form will be Friday, August 5th at 4:00 pm.

mission & vision

Our Mission
As a community of learners, in cooperation with stakeholders, our mission is to provide rigorous and relevant instruction in a safe environment to enable all students to obtain a high school diploma as a foundation for post secondary success.
A note from our Principal
What really matters is not so much what students at Effingham County High School walk away with in their hands, but how many sparks we ignite in their hearts. There’s no doubt students want inspiration more than they want stuff. The caring faculty member, not the content, determines whether students at our school walk away ignited or extinguished. Our faculty understands that the influence we have on children is powerful. Be it positive or negative, it is lasting. Read more
