Welcome to East Forysth High School, home of the Broncos!

EFHS is committed to our vision to Connect, Collaborate and Care for the students, staff and community of East Forsyth.  Our motto at East Forsyth High School is Be Better.  This motto is intended to encourage students and staff to continuously strive for improvement, personal growth and make a daily commitment to try their best.

This commitment includes our ongoing work to develop our Be Better Values: accountable, active participant, communicator, engaged, helpful, inclusive, involved, kind, present, and problem solver.  

Our Be Better Values were key in the creation of our Be Better Expectations. This framework was developed by staff and students to help shape our school environment and establish our student, staff and community expectations.  

We are also very proud of the Be Better alignment within our One East schools and community: Chattahoochee Elementary School, Chestatee Elementary School and Little Mill Middle School.
