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

  • AMS Students Using Kiln

    Appomattox Middle School students are really getting hands-on practice with their art work in Ms. Jen Henzi’s art classes. The newly installed kiln at AMS will expand the art program by allowing students to create pottery. In preparing for the new additional to the AMS art department, Ms. Henzi has reached out and connected with Gail Speidell who teaches pottery for the Lynchburg Recreational Arts Program. Ms. Speidell has not only given her expert advice but donated bisque clay projects for student to practice glazing, which is tricky because the color look much different after the piece comes out of the kiln.

  • Appomattox Leads Region 2000 in SOL Scores!

    The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) today released results of Standards of Learning (SOL) assessments taken by students during the 2017-2018 school year. Pass rates on the 2017-2018 SOLs were little changed from the previous year, with students performing as follows:

    • 79 percent of the students who took reading tests passed, compared with 80 percent during 2016-2017;
    • 78 percent passed in writing, compared with 79 percent previously;
    • 77 percent passed in mathematics, compared with 79 percent in 2016-2017;
    • 81 percent passed SOL tests in science, compared with 82 percent previously; and
    • 84 percent of students tested in history and social studies passed, compared with 86 percent in 2016-2017.

    Appomattox County Public Schools for all students are at or above the state average in all subject areas.  ACPS was the only division in the Lynchburg area to have all its students score 80 or higher in each subject area. ACPS earned an 81 in reading, 84 in writing, 88 in history and social sciences, 82 in mathematics and 81 in science.

    Additional information on the performance of students on SOL tests during 2017-2018 — including pass rates for all Virginia schools and school divisions — is available on the VDOE website and on the online School Quality Profiles. The VDOE website can be found here -
