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.


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 (https://betterprepsuccess.com/) from Jason Franklin, a well-known and successful ACT/SAT test prep instructor. The program is offered in a series of online videos students can use to prep for either the ACT or SAT. This service is free to all EHS students regardless of grade level until August 1st, 2023.

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.
Students should use their Effingham Unit #40 (@effingham.k12.il.us) school email address.
Always exercise care when sharing or submitting personal data online.

Students must submit a Google form to gain access to these online videos. To complete the
Google form,
● Go to https://ehs.unit40.org/.
● Under EHS in the navigation bar, expand the menu and choose Student Services. Under
“Resources & Links”, click the “Better Prep Success Access Form”.
● Complete the form.
● After submitting the form, the student will click on the link for instructions to access the
test prep materials.
We hope that this is a great resource for students as they prepare for their academic future.
