Welcome!

Welcome to Appomattox County Public Schools' web page.  Appomattox County Public Schools is located in central Virginia.  We offer educational services to more than 2,230 students enrolled in preschool through adult classes in one high school, one middle school, one elementary school, and one primary school.  Alternative middle and high school programs, gifted programs, and programs for students with special needs are also available.  The public school system of Appomattox County is dedicated to excellence in education and strives to ensure that all children of school age receive the highest quality education appropriate to their individual needs and abilities.

Our theme for this year is Achieving Creative Prepared Students.  We continue to strengthen our professional learning communities in each of our schools.  Our vision is to equip our 2,230 students with the critical thinking skills needed for today and for their future.  As we increase student achievement through the Standards of Learning (SOLs), we must also train our children to be inquisitive as they access and analyze information.  ACPS aims to provide a high quality of education for every child, filled with a wide range of academic options, as well as many extra-curricular and athletic opportunities.

Appomattox Co. Public Schools Get Security Boost
Appomattox Co., VA- There’s some new security for Appomattox County Public Schools this year. Thanks to a state security grant last year, the school system has installed new intercom and video systems at all front doors to screen who enters the building.

Visitors will have to call the office and speak to an employee before being let inside. They will then have to provide identification that will be scanned and run through a database. If that checks out they'll get a pass to wear during their visit.

“It's another layer of security and I think it will be helpful to parents to know we are doing an additional check of identification," said Dr. Dorinda Grasty, Superintendent for Appomattox County Public Schools.

Bullying Hotline
ACPS has set up a Bullying Hotline for students and faculty to call if they feel they are being bullied. Messages can be left anonymously, if desired. School administrators are checking this number for messages and looking into any issues. The number is (434) 352-2071. 

In addition to the Hotline, students and faculty can now text their concerns to (434) 609-7146.  This is a texting only phone and will be checked daily.  If you do not have access to a phone you can use our on-line system to send text message alerts.
