You won't have to search too hard to discover that the education of children has always been important to Effingham County residents. In response, the board of education has faithfully provided well-built schools, knowledgeable and caring educators and a commitment to graduating students who will become this country's future citizens, work force, civic leaders and educators. That is where our tradition lies – in our commitment to doing what's best for children.
Because we do have a supportive school board and community of stakeholders, doing what's best includes having high expectations for our students. It is our school system's vision to equip students to compete in our global society as evidenced by ranking in the top 15% of districts in the State of Georgia. This means providing rigorous and relevant instruction to enable all students to obtain a high school diploma as a foundation for post secondary success.
