Welcome to Effingham High School

Effingham High School is a learning environment that differs from other high schools. We are engrossed every day in innovation, excitement, energy, and celebration. From the classroom to the theatre to the athletic fields, the staff and students are on fire for their school and community. Our teachers are recognized locally, nationally, and internationally for their innovative teaching practices.

Students at Effingham High School have the opportunity to take part in 23 different dual credit courses, produce award winning theatre shows, earn athletic scholarships to major universities, and are awarded over 1 million dollars in academic scholarships annually.

In the following video, EHS Principal Kurt Roberts shares a few thoughts on practices that can be used to help improve student success.

EHS Spotlight

In the following interview, Mr. Hiatt shares a story about how a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago led to a project that required the students in his construction class to build a chair. You'll never believe how much weight it could hold! 

Test Prep


Effingham High School and Effingham Unit #40 are excited to offer to all Effingham High School students a free ACT/SAT Preparation service.

Effingham Unit #40 has purchased the Better Prep Success from Jason Franklin, a well-known and successful ACT/SAT test prep instructor. The program is offered in a series of on-line videos students can use to prep for either the ACT or SAT. This service is free to all EHS students until August 1st, 2022.

Better Prep Success is an ACT/SAT test preparation opportunity that is strictly voluntary for students. In the sign-up process, participants will be asked to supply an email account. It is suggested that a personal email address is used instead of the school’s issued Gmail account. The school district’s filter may prevent students from receiving emails from Better Prep Success in the student’s issued Gmail account. Always exercise care when sharing or submitting personal data online.

To gain access to these online videos, students will be sent a link and instruction in their school Gmail account. You may also access the registration instructions on the Student Services page of Effingham High School’s website under “Resources and Links.”
We hope that this is a great resource for students as they prepare for their academic future.
