ACPS 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.

February Is School Board Appreciation Month
Appomattox County Public Schools will join 133 other school divisions throughout the state to celebrate School Board Appreciation Month in February.  Almost 850 selected and appointed school board members throughout Virginia will be recognized by schools and communities for their service and dedication to public education. 
 
The theme of this year’s celebrations, “Turning Vision into Results”, reflects the top priority of local school board members as they advocate for public education with local, state, and federal leaders. 
 
The foundation of school leadership is ensuring equal learning opportunities for all students.  We are proud of Appomattox County Public Schools (ACPS) and School Board Appreciation Month is the time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our board members.  All ACPS schools are fully accredited.
 
In Appomattox County Public Schools, school board members must develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community.  They bear responsibility for the budget, students, employees, parents, and facilities.

Appomattox Middle School's ALPs Visits Renaissance Festival
The Appomattox Middle School ALPs classes had the opportunity to attend the NC Renaissance Festival after studying feudalism, and the art and science and historical context of the Middle Ages in class. 
The students enjoyed seeing examples and learning about glassblowing, archery, blacksmithing, falconry, dancing, theater and musical styles and a joust with the "King and Queen" of the Realm.
