  • 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.

  • 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.

  • ACPS Names Mary Ann Bennett Teacher of the Year

    Appomattox County Public Schools is proud to announce Mary Ann Bennett as the school division Teacher of the Year. Ms. Bennett is a Geometry and Computer Math teacher at Appomattox County High School (ACHS). Ms. Bennett has 12 years of math teaching experience. She is a graduate of Sweet Briar College. Ms. Bennett is the sponsor of the National Honor Society at ACHS, serves on the Building Leadership Team, Best Practices Team, and is the Math Department Chairperson. She serves as a teacher mentor and has prepared numerous staff development sessions.

    Ms. Bennett’s philosophy of teaching is evident in her daily classroom instruction as she strives to empower all students to self-advocate by being active members of the learning environment. She fosters positive mentoring relationships with her students and builds connections with students to foster positivity and clear expectations.

    Dr. Poldi Moreno, ACHS Principal, notes that Ms. Bennett differentiates instruction for all students and is well respected by her colleagues. She has maintained an impressive 95% pass rate on the Geometry Standards of Learning (SOL) test the last two years.

    Ms. Bennett was surprised today during one of her Geometry classes with flowers, balloons, and a plaque. Dr. Dorinda Grasty, Division Superintendent, and members of the School Board, as well as ACHS staff, presented Ms. Bennett with the Appomattox County Public Schools Teacher of the Year Award.

    Ms. Bennett will advance next to compete with other teachers in 11 surrounding counties to determine who will be the Region 8 Teacher of the Year. That person will then advance to competition at the state level for the 2018 Mary V. Bicouvaris Virginia Teacher of the Year Program.

    We wish to congratulate Mary Ann Bennett on being named Appomattox County Public Schools Teacher of the Year. We are proud of you!
