Welcome to Russell County Public Schools in the Heart of Southwest Virginia!

Russell County Public Schools is fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education and ranks 14th in the Commonwealth for overall Standards of

Learning (SOL) performance.  Given this time of very tight budgets and efforts to find additional opportunities for funding, this is a tremendous accomplishment!

Russell County Public Schools is comprised of the three large communities of Honaker, Lebanon, and Castlewood.  We have 3,750 students in eleven (11)

schools, a Career and Technical Education Center and an Alternative Education Center. 

In working with our Board of Supervisors, Russell County Public Schools has restored our Agriculture program at our three (3) high schools and our Career

and Technical Education Center.  Students are exposed to Forestry, Animal Science, Turf Management, and other related fields.   Additionally, students have

the ability to secure college credit through our dual enrollment relationship with Southwest Virginia Community College and the A. Linwood Holton Governor’s


Through our partnership with the Board of Supervisors, all employees received a 2% pay raise for the 2017-2018 school year and we will continue to look for

ways to make Russell County even stronger.

In addition to our core offerings, students have a wide range of opportunities with our fine arts, clubs and organizations, and athletic programs.  Come and visit

our communities and our schools!
