Welcome to Appomattox County Public Schools! Explore our division website and our 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.
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 will 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 for a rapidly changing world. ACPS aims to provide a high quality education for every child, filled with a wide range of academic, extra-curricular, and athletic opportunities.
All of our schools are fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education. We are only one of 37 school systems in Virginia to have all schools fully accredited. Many thanks to our staff, students, and parents for their hard work in making this tremendous accomplishment a reality.
