District Announcements


  • Welcome! 

    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.

    Go Raiders!

    Annette A. Bennett, Ed. D.
    Division Superintendent

  • Appomattox FFA Members Win Big At CVLS

    Before dawn in May, 13 FFA members gathered at Appomattox County High School to load their animals, supplies, and belongings to travel to the Lynchburg Livestock Market for the Central Virginia Livestock Show (CVLS). These individuals have spent four meticulous months working with their livestock animals to feed, groom, and halter-break their lambs and goats and training their hogs. There were six different contests that students participated in: swine showmanship, market hog show, sheep showmanship, market lamb show, goat showmanship, and the market goat show. The showmanship rounds are based on proper showing techniques. In order to be successful, students must demonstrate knowledge of their animal, properly groom the hog, lamb, or goat, teach the animal to walk and help the animal set up in a proper manner. The market hog, lamb, and goat contests are designed to select livestock that will produce the highest quality meat.

    Jade Campbell, Bruce Jones, Josie Jones, Jared Morgan and Will Morgan exhibited market hogs that they raised on the Appomattox FFA Alumni Land Laboratory in the swine facility. (Pictured is Will Morgan and his 1st place feeder pig.)
