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' Professional Day Activities

    On Monday October 15, ACPS teachers partnered with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services for two very important trainings. They spent the morning participating in C.R.A.S.E. (Community Response to Active Shooter Event) where they focused on safety strategies and solutions. The afternoon was spent delving in a session on brain development and the implications on learning as it affects males and females differently with Horacio Sanchez, a leader in this field of study. This was a thought provoking time for everyone with implications to move us forward in both safety and instruction. We hope to continue to work with our colleagues from VDJS in the future.

    Krista Williams and Diane Bradish’s 8th grade English classes used the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Lab to bring their inventions to life. After reading a book about two unlikely friends, one of which has a physically debilitating disease called Morquio Syndrome, students designed and created inventions to help the main character overcome a physical limitation. The inventions were created using Lil Bits and recyclable materials.
