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

  • D.A.R.E Program at AES

    The Appomattox County Sheriff’s Department provides D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) to all 5th Graders at Appomattox Elementary School. Pictured above is Mr. Ward’s 5th Grade class, with Sergeant Karen Nipper (School Resource Officer) and Sheriff Barry Letterman. In additions to D.A.R.E., Sheriff Letterman provided career awareness related to law enforcement as part of the school’s focus on “Dreaming, Believing, and Achieving” their future goals as Appomattox County graduates. Students are encouraged to wear their D.A.R.E. shirts for each week’s lesson, which are provided to them as part of the program in partnership with donations from community benefactors.

  • AES Participated in "Attendance Works: Every Day Matters"

    During the month of September, Appomattox Elementary School participated in "Attendance Works: Every Day Matters!"

    Students are also encouraged to “be on time, feeling fine,” as research shows that being in school every day makes a difference in student success.

    Pictured is a fourth grader, D Almond, who reaped the benefits of being in school and on time on a regular basis.  Some students from different classes were chosen to select a prize from the prize bucket.  And the winning class at AES enjoyed a pizza party and "chillin'" time with their classmates!

  • AMS Art Students

    AMS 7th grade art students traveled to the McGuffey Art Center in Charlottesville and met with three working artists.  The artists discussed how they created their work, what inspires them, the procedure on displaying and selling their artwork and the costs involved.  Students even had the opportunity to get involved and participate in some traditional dancing with performance artist, Lillie Williams.
