Nelson County Public Schools
Nelson County Public Schools believe that children are our future and that learning is a lifelong adventure. Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, and a creative environment for learning. In partnership with families and community, we are committed to providing quality instruction that fosters student success, respect and diversity. We strive to enable students to become skilled, responsible and contributing members of our global society.
Nelson County Public Schools are committed to maintaining a high standard of quality for the individual student. The curriculum at all levels is aimed primarily at the expansion and development of each student's intellectual, physical, social and emotional capabilities. Using the Virginia Standards of Learning as the minimum competencies expected of our students, teachers and administrators work with parents and the community to ensure that the needs of each child are met.
Nelson County High School offers students from grades 9 to 12 a full range of educational opportunities. Nelson Middle School offers "true middle school" programs with grades 6 to 8. Lastly, Tye River Elementary and Rockfish River Elementary offer outstanding elementary school programs for students in grades Pre-K through grade 5.
This is the second year that Nelson County has selected a Teacher of the Year. Each school principal submitted their nomination to the committee for Teacher of the Year.
