South Effingham High School is one of two public high schools located in Effingham County, Georgia, northwest of Savannah. The school was created in 1996 when Effingham County High School was split.

The school is known for its excellent academic programs, award-winning band program, and successful athletic programs.[citation needed] In the 2009-2010 school year, they won the annual football game against Effingham County High School. This game is always important because of the ongoing rivalry between the two schools since the split.

The current principal is Dr. Mark Winters, who took over in 2009. Prior to his appointment to SEHS, he was the principal of South Effingham Middle School.

Josh Reddick was a star player for the Mustangs baseball team before getting drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 17th Round of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft.
