Building a sense of community with students and families, and collaborating with colleagues in Professional Learning Communities are some of the very best things about teaching in Albemarle County Public Schools.


Our strategic priorities focus on equity, helping students pursue their interests, and engaging in activities that they’re passionate about.


Our teachers challenge their students and themselves every day to be lifelong learners. Through robust professional growth opportunities, mentoring, and instructional coaching, our teachers push themselves to learn new and innovative ways to help students unleash their potential.
