  • 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.  Last year all four of our schools were fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education. We were one of only 37 school divisions in Virginia to achieve this status.

    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.

  • Appomattox Middle FFA Takes 2nd, 4th place at State FFA Convention

    During the week of June 26-29, 8 Appomattox Middle FFA members travelled to the State FFA Convention, held on the Virginia Tech Campus in Blacksburg, Virginia. Throughout the week, students participated in workshops, heard from keynote speakers, and participated in the state FFA delegate process. Members heard from past and current national FFA Officers, state FFA officers, and other motivational speakers on how to “Transform” their purpose to action in order to make a difference as leaders in their community.

    The teams were coached by AMS Agriculture teacher and FFA Advisor Dani Gaulden. AMS FFA would like to thank the Appomattox County FFA Alumni, Appomattox County School Board and Administration, ACPS Transportation Department, AMS Administration, and ACHS Advisors Ed McCann and Elizabeth Duncan for contributing to making this trip a success.

  • ACPS Meal Price Increases

    On Thursday May 11, 2017, the School Board approved lunch price increases and A La Carte item increases for the 2017-2018 school year. Lunch price increases are a requirement of USDA in order for the school division to be in compliance with the National Lunch Program and receive reimbursement funds for free and reduced lunches. The basis for the increase in A La Carte items is that currently most of these items are sold for less than the cost to prepare them by the school division. Lunch prices will go from $1.80 to $1.90 at Appomattox Primary and Appomattox Elementary School and lunch prices will go from $2.05 to $2.20 at Appomattox Middle and Appomattox High School. Breakfast A La Carte items will increase from $0.50 to $0.75 and lunch A La Carte items will increase from $1.00 to $1.25. The A La Carte increases will occur at all schools.
