Our mission is to provide the best education possible using all of our available resources in the most efficient manner possible. 

Effingham offers programs that focus on the student as a whole and that serve children from early childhood to young adulthood.

Please make sure you stop at the office to sign in and sign out when entering and leaving the building and wear a badge for the safety of the students. Thank you!
