    "My family just moved to the area from another state and so far I love this school. Reading the reviews online before I got here made me a little worried but I have been pleasantly surprised. The teachers really seem to care about the kids and I love the parent portal. As a parent of a 9th grader I love how it's my responsibility to stay on top of my child's assignments and grades. I'm impressed by how the parent portal stays updated with grades, homework, class work, and it even sends you an email if your child makes a grade below 70. At 14-18 teens don't think they should keep their parent informed and this system allows you to do that. My daughter loves the school and enjoys her classes. After the first week she said she liked all of her teachers and that is rare at this age. I highly recommend this school!"

    "There are a lot of reviews complaining about the dress code. They do enforce it strictly. This is to prevent distracting, immoral, or inappropriate attire out of the school. Furthermore, the dress code does not define the school. Every teacher I've had is supportive, knows their subject incredibly well and the frequently relate their subjects to real world topics and stories. The school's marching band program is at the very least in the top three for almost 100 miles. We have good sports teams. Our principal is very cooperative and is very helpful if problems arise. I have yet to see any evidence of favoritism that is out of the ordinary. I don't know how the school was in past years, but I've really enjoyed my time spent in this school. Some negative things are simply present in any high school and shouldn't be a reason to shoot down this particular school. This really is one of the better schools in Georgia."

    "Effingham County High School is a great place to work and to send your kids to school. The teachers and administrators all work as a unit to help kids succeed. The faculty is like family, not co-workers. The principal is very approachable and truly cares about the kids. He is always in the hall during class changes and visible in the lunchroom during lunch. There is a dress code and students are required to wear uniforms. If the parents would support the school in its decision to have the uniform policy and enforce it at home with their own children, then there would be much less time spent on enforcing it during the school day. I believe that high school is meant to prepare students for the real world, their next step upon graduation may be college or it may be a full-time job. Either way students will eventually have to wear some sort of uniform or abide by a dress code. It is past time for students to step up and take responsibility for their own actions and for their parents to institute discipline at home. When this finally takes place, the public school system will be a better place to work and for students to learn."

    "The teachers could care less about the students, unless they play sports or are related to someone who works in the school system. The teachers would rather send their students to the front office for mix matched or colored socks than let the student learn. I can't even count how many classes I missed because of stupid little things dealing with dress code."

    "My oldest is in his 3rd year at ECHS, he is an A& B student with a 98 gpa he is also in band. His freshman year he took standard classes and then challenged himself by taking some college courses and honors classes as well. The students are challenged and pushed to work hard and apply themselves. Academics is stressed and good character is encouraged. Poor behavior is not tolerated and the dress code is taken serious. If you miss alot of days students can make the time up during Saturday school. (Illnesses happen) if my son misses school I get a call every time no matter what, every time I have emailed a teacher I get a reply. I must say every school has issues but if students don't care that's on them these teachers work hard to educate and some kids just don't care. I will say the career academy is awesome, and the band program is the best you will find! Every school comes with hiccups and I expect that. But I am happy with the school so far and I plan for all my children to graduate from ECHS!"
