District Announcements

  • 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.

  • AES Global Project

    Appomattox Elementary school has joined with classrooms all around the world, as we all celebrated the joy of the Holiday Season in December by exchanging greeting cards! The third graders at Appomattox Elementary School participated in the Christmas Card Exchange Project, created by Jennifer Wagner of Projects by Jen. Students in Mrs. Adams, Mrs. Mills, and Mrs. Franklin’s classes each made Star-Themed Holiday greeting cards to mail out to 30 schools around the world. In addition to sending the cards, the students have been practicing their geography skills as they map out the locations from which cards from other schools were received. They enjoyed reading the cards and learning about the various locations as each card arrived. Most schools have been sharing information about what makes their schools different and what type of weather they expect to see this time of the year in their area. This project is in it's 10th year, and it continues to grow, breaking down classroom walls, and bringing classrooms around the world together in this global collaboration. This year, teachers had an opportunity to sign-up to have their classes participate in what is called the "Ho-Ho-Holiday Mystery Skype", which connected them with another classroom through the audio/visual application. Students were able to communicate through "Skype", and talk face-to-face with their peers from other classrooms somewhere else in the world. The hashtag for this project is #PBJHCE17.
