Public Schools

In Effingham County, the focus is on students. A quality school environment with student/teacher ratios lower than the state average, the school administration channels its resources into the classroom and provides a safe learning environment for its educators and students. New fall enrollments reach close to 300 students each year, but Effingham manages to uphold its standards despite continued growth. To get more information on Effingham County schools, click here.
