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.
As a result, Appomattox County High School will receive a donation from U.S. Cellular in the amount of $5000.00. Along with the donation, Coach Smith will be flown to Florida and will be recognized at the Under Armor All-American Bowl game on January 1, 2017 which is being broadcast live on ESPN starting at 1:00 p.m.
Coach Smith led the Appomattox Raiders in a "Power of One" undefeated 2015 season, which culminated in a first-ever football state championship. Currently the team remains undefeated and is in the third round of the regional play-offs and will play Union High on Saturday, November 26 at Appomattox County High School at 6:00 p.m.
Congratulations to Coach Smith on this incredible honor. Go Raiders!

Eighty-one percent, or 1,482, of Virginia’s 1,825 public schools are rated as Fully Accredited for 2016-2017, a 3-point improvement over 2015-2016, when 78 percent of schools earned the state’s top accountability rating.
“I hope these results will encourage teachers, principals and other educators in all of our schools as they strive to help students meet Virginia’s high expectations for learning and achievement,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Steven R. Staples said.
Of the 218 schools rated as Partially Accredited: Warned School-Pass Rate during 2015-2016, 59 are now Fully Accredited.

For a school to earn full accreditation, students must achieve adjusted pass rates of at least 75 percent on English reading and writing SOL tests, and at least 70 percent on assessments in mathematics, 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.
Seven schools earned full accreditation after undergoing reconstitution last year. Reconstitution involves significant changes in school leadership, governance, faculty or attendance and reconstitution status must be approved by the state Board of Education. These schools are as follows:
- Bedford County — Staunton River Middle
- Buchanan County — Riverview Elementary/Middle
- Buena Vista — Parry McCluer Middle
- Petersburg — Walnut Hill Elementary
- Southampton County — Riverdale Elementary
- Suffolk — King`s Fork High
- Virginia Beach — Williams Elementary
Two schools — Hunter B. Andrews School (PK-8) in Hampton and Kiptopeke Elementary in Northampton County — moved from Accreditation Denied to Fully Accredited as a result of improved student performance.
All schools are fully accredited in 53 of the commonwealth’s 132 school divisions, compared with 36 divisions last year. The divisions with all schools fully accredited (other than new schools that automatically receive conditional accreditation) are as follows:
- Appomattox County
