5:00 PM Interim School Board Meeting
3:30 PM Regular Monthly Business Meeting
On behalf of Appomattox County School Board, the faculty and staff of Appomattox County Public Schools (ACPS), I welcome you to our website.
Located in Central Virginia, Appomattox is historically significant as it served as the stage for the Confederate Army’s surrender to end the American Civil War. We provide public education to approximately 2200 students in four schools. In each of our schools; Appomattox County High School (Grades 9-12), Appomattox Middle School (Grades 6-8), Appomattox Elementary School (Grades 3-5), and Appomattox Primary School (Preschool – Grade 2); we will engage students in meaningful, rigorous, and authentic learning experiences that will encourage relevant exploration of the state’s Standards of Learning and beyond and we are proud to announce that all of our schools are fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education.
Our school division’s theme is “Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow” and our goal is to prepare every student with the skills needed to become productive and successful citizens on the local, state, national and/or global stage. We believe each child should have access to a high quality instructional team, up-to-date technology, and innovative lessons that will prepare our students to be career or college ready upon graduation.
I encourage you to explore our website and the links to each of our four schools’ websites.
Annette A. Bennett, Ed. D.
