  • Welcome!

    On behalf of the Appomattox County School Board and our staff, welcome to our website.  Explore our website and our four school websites.  Appomattox County is located in rural central Virginia.  We provide public education to approximately 2200 students who are enrolled in our four schools in the school division.  Those schools include Appomattox Primary School (Preschool – Grade 2), Appomattox Elementary School (Grades 3-5), Appomattox Middle School (Grades 6-8), and Appomattox County High School (Grades 9-12).  We are proud of our students and staff in ACPS.  We are proud to announce that all of our schools are fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education for a third year in a row.  We are one of 65 school divisions, out of 132 total division in Virginia, to have all schools fully accredited.  This exemplifies the daily dedication of our teachers and staff to our students. 


    Our theme for this year is Striving for Excellence.  Our goal is to engage every student in meaningful and rigorous work with high expectations.  We accomplish this through the use of innovative instructional practices, a guaranteed curriculum, and up-to-date technology.  We want our students to be motivated and hard workers in order to be career or college ready upon graduation.  ACPS aims to provide a high quality education for every child, filled with a wide range of academic, extra-curricular, and athletic opportunities.
