— Appomattox, Virginia - Appomattox County —

In 1929-30 the Appomattox training school was built on this site with funds raised by Mozella Price, who served as Supervisor of Appomattox Counter Negro Schools from 1919 to 1963. It was a cinder block building, employing four teachers. At the urging of Mrs. Price, the building was extended and remodeled in 1950-51 to be more in line with Virginia's "separate but equal" provisions. The improved school was renamed the Carver-Price School in her honor in 1952.

The curriculum consisted of a strongly liberal arts core of trigonometry, math, English, biology, typing, French, and history, as well as a vocal curriculum that included home economics for girls and bricklaying, carpentry, and machine shop for boys. The school name changed again in 1970 to the Appomattox Intermediate School, when the county's schools were integrated. Later, consolidation made it the Appomattox Elementary School, where it housed grades 3-6.
