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.  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 Fully Accredited for the THIRD Year in a Row!

    Appomattox County Public Schools is proud to announce that all of its schools are fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education based on performance of students on Standards of Learning (SOL) assessments in English, math, science, and history during 2016-17.

    For a school to earn full accreditation, students must achieve adjusted pass rates of at least 75 percent in English and at least 70 percent on assessments in math, science, and history. High schools must also meet a benchmark for graduation and completion. Accreditation ratings may also reflect an average of achievement over several years.

    Appomattox County Public Schools is one of 65 school divisions, out of 132 total divisions in Virginia, to have all schools fully accredited. Appomattox County Public Schools is proud to have all schools fully accredited for the third consecutive year in a row.

    Having all schools fully accredited for the third year is a shining reflection of the daily dedication of all teachers and staff of Appomattox County Public Schools to our students.

  • AMS 6th Grade Students Interactive Reading

    Mrs. Fort’s 6th grade Language Arts class read the book Justin and the Best Biscuits in the World by M. Walter. The story was about a young boy learning how to take responsibility for his actions and how he matured throughout the story. One important lesson he learned was how to cook. He learned from his grandfather about his family history and how to cook biscuits. With the help of Mrs. Tillotson from 4H, students were able to cook and take home their own best biscuits in the world! Students also researched information discussed in the book such as cowboys during the 1800’s with the help of Mrs. Williams in the library.
