Our Mission


At Amherst County High School, our mission is to focus on more than academics, by creating engaged citizens, promoting community pride, and developing essential workforce skills.

Lancer Families,

First and foremost, I would just like to say thank you to everyone for your help with the new traffic patterns and parking. For the most part, it has been a very smooth transition with very few issues. I would like to continue to remind everyone that the back parking lot behind the gym is now completely closed to vehicles and pedestrians. Because it is now considered a construction zone, only approved personnel are allowed to go into that area. Thank you for your cooperation! 

For after-school activities and athletic events, we will be changing the parking structure. 

For regular after-school activities and practices: 
Students who drive will leave their car in the Junior or Senior Lot. Once practice is over, students will exit through the CTE wing to walk to the parking lot as all other students do after school. 

Activity Buses will still run and will be parked in the front of the building (in front of the main office). We will have one bus that will shuttle track and field athletes from the stadium to the front of the building each day so that they can board the appropriate bus. Students who ride activity buses should exit the building in the front by the main office. 

For Games/Evening Events in the Gym Area (Basketball, Wrestling, Archery, etc.): 
Spectators/participants will park in the front of the building in front of the main office area. They will enter the main doors and will walk straight down the hallway toward the gym area. Ticket-takers will be in the hallway between the Cafeteria and the old gym. When the game or event is over, spectators will exit out of the main entrance in the front of the building.
