To be recognized as having an innovative, challenging and exemplary school system.

To educate and nurture students to be successful and productive citizens.

Welcome to Pittsylvania County Schools
“A Great Place to Learn and Work!”

We use this phrase often because we truly work hard to provide an exemplary learning environment and believe that our young people and staff view our school division this way. Across our County you will find not only a strong engrained belief in cooperation, but also a vision of excellence as it relates to caring for our children. Please use this website to find information relating to our School Division and individual schools. From our test scores that are consistently above the State averages, State award winning schools, National Blue Ribbon Schools, and cutting edge programs in STEAM, to championship athletic teams and articles about our students and teachers, you will come to realize our commitment to excellence.

These accomplishments do not happen by chance. It is a result of an exceptional collaborative outlook that exists between our School Board, central office and school staffs, our community, parents, and students. This foundation of cooperation has become the bedrock from which the Division operates.

As you peruse the website, should you have any questions relative to the many outstanding programs and opportunities for students in the Pittsylvania County Schools, please feel free to contact a staff member through e-mail or by phone. I also invite you to visit our schools. I believe you will find some of the most dedicated teachers, staff, and administrators who maintain very high expectations for their students.
