Attention Parents of Students Receiving Special Education Services:
The 2016-2017 Parent Survey is now available and we’d like to know what you think. This survey is a Georgia Department of Education initiative. All responses are anonymous and your responses will help guide efforts to improve services and results for children served by Special Education in Georgia schools and their families.
On the first Wednesday of every month, Parker’s donates 1¢ from every gallon of gas sold throughout our community. You can raise funds for your school by using the Parker’s PumpPal Club Card on “Fueling the Community” Wednesdays. Just pick up a PumpPal card at any Parker’s location. Then go online at www.ParkerSav.com to quickly sign up as a member. Be sure to choose our school!
mission & vision
Our MissionAs 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 PrincipalWhat 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.
