Accomack County Public Schools Info

Accomack County Public Schools is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. We have 12 schools and approximately 5,600 students.
In the past three years, we have more than doubled the numbers of computers in our system to approximately 1600 for our 5,500 students. This provides more than one computer for every four students - much better than the state average in Virginia. In addition to computer labs with proprietary instructional delivery systems, each K-8 core area classroom teacher has a new pentium multimedia computer and printer. Our high schools offer a variety of technology systems and opportunities including extensive on-line data retrieval, programming classes, computer assisted design, and a trade-technical computer repair program. There are almost 1,400 computers networked to the Internet for our students.

Our school system is preparing diligently to meet the new millennium. We are in the process of completing a thirty-two million dollar building campaign which includes four new schools and two major renovations. Our building campaign demonstrates our commitment to increasing student-skill levels so our students can be productive members of an increasingly technology-oriented society. With our NASA, NOAA, and U.S. Navy Aegis Training facilities at Wallops Island, Accomack County can see our children's future first hand. The State of Virginia has also committed substantial resources to development of a space port at Wallops Island for launching of civilian satellites and space vehicles which can add another facet to our wide array of clean vocational opportunities.

If you are thinking of relocating to the Eastern Shore of Virginia, you will not find a more beautiful or a more friendly place to live. We are bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by the Chesapeake Bay and are fortunate enough to be one of the few seacoast areas that has not been overdeveloped. The Eastern Shore offers unparalleled outdoor activities, including boating, fishing, and hunting, as well as abundant animal and bird life for the nature lover. We can experience a magnificent sunrise on an ocean beach in the morning and watch a tranquil sunset over the Chesapeake Bay horizon in the evening with only thirty minutes of driving in between. Yet this unspoiled paradise is only four hours from the museums and attractions of Washington, D.C. and two hours from cultural and recreational opportunities of the Tidewater Metropolitan area.

Educational opportunities in the area include the Eastern Shore Community College, Old Dominion University Teletechnet Center and two Maryland colleges, Salisbury State University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, which are within fifty miles and offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs. Accomack County Schools also maintains a partnership with Old Dominion University in Norfolk, offering local classes for several Master's programs.

In short, few of our visitors ever want to leave. I invite you to come see what Accomack County can offer and invite you to contact us for any questions about our school system. The importance of living life like you like it and being able to raise your children in a safe, friendly school environment is why we live in Accomack County. I hope that this short glimpse can demonstrate that your hopes and dreams can be realized here on the Eastern Shore and that you will want to be a part of our vision for the children of Accomack County.

W. Richard Bull, Jr. Superintendent
