Welcome to Effingham Junior High School

With a dynamic curriculum, dedicated teachers, and a supportive community, we strive to create an environment that fosters critical thinking, creativity, and resilience. At this stage of education, we understand the importance of building strong foundations for the future while encouraging exploration and self-discovery.

We are a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade building which typically educates 600 students per year. Academics is our foundation teaching 5 core areas: Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science. We have elective classes by grade level in computers, Family and Consumer Sciences, Physical Education, Health, Chorus, Band, Fine Arts, Art, and Computer Technologies.

We are proud of our sports teams such as cross country, baseball, softball, boys and girls basketball, volleyball and track. Our students also have the opportunity to join many clubs and extracurricular activities such as Mustang Outreach, Student Council, Science Club, Year Book, Drama and the Fall Musical.

Parents: If your child is ill or absent for any reason, you must call into the office.  We do not accept notes brought by your student, but we do save them for a rainy day.
