Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

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

  • ACPS Teacher of the Year

    It is our privilege to announce the ACPS Teacher of the Year has been named. Brian Hofmann from AMS was surprised this morning with the news.

    Mr. Hofmann is a teacher leader at AMS and goes out of his way to support students, teachers, and the well-being of the school environment. Mr. Hofmann serves as a mentor teacher for AMS. He organizes and leads new teacher meetings and plans the content of those meetings. New teachers trust him and often go to him for advice on how to handle various situations.

    Mr. Hofmann looks out for the best interest of students at AMS. This school year, administrators asked Mr. Hofmann to switch his teaching assignment in the middle of the first semester. Not only did Mr. Hofmann willingly make this change, he was very successful in the transition, skillfully preparing his classes for the SOL test in 9 weeks.

    Mr. Hofmann has worked tirelessly on creating a weekly culture-building program for the students at AMS. Every week, Mr. Hofmann plans a lesson for all AMS teachers to implement in their Discovery class. Through these lessons, topics such as leadership, self-worth, character, bullying, and empathy are addressed. Mr. Hofmann provides teachers with a lesson plan and all of the resources for these lessons.

    In addition, Mr. Hofmann is a valuable member of the school’s leadership team, serves as his grade level chair, as well our Swim Team Coach. Mr. Hofmann forms meaningful relationships with students, consistently holding them accountable to meet their potential in the classroom and the pool.

    Mr. Hofmann goes beyond the expectations for teachers. He works with administrators, students, and coworkers to make AMS and our school division better. His contributions are many and he is an example of the best in Appomattox County Public Schools.

    Please join me in congratulating Brian Hofmann!
