Sand Hill Elementary is a rural Effingham County public school. It is located in the southwest quadrant of Effingham County. It is situated on Stage Coach Avenue, which branches off Sand Hill Road. The school encompasses twenty-five acres of land. The location was formerly a
helicopter landing facility that was owned and used by the federal government. A county commissioner, Mr. Noel Conaway, spoke up for the property anticipating future county needs. That need arose in 1995 when Sand Hill Elementary School was established.
Adjacent to the school site, on the remaining portion of land is a community recreation area. The area includes basketball and tennis courts. There are baseball and soccer fields. The paved area is utilized for racing remote controlled cars and flying model airplanes and rockets. Both the community and school use these areas.
