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.
