Traffic Pattern

cautionNottoway High School may not be among the largest of secondary schools or located in a high traffic area, but traffic becomes hectic near opening time in the morning and during dismissal in the afternoon.

Drivers are reminded to be aware of and obey the yield sign at the end of the school road that runs from the front of Nottoway Intermediate School to NHS. (The sign is at the junction where drivers can turn onto the highway to the left or go around to the back of the complex by going right.)

Pedestrians are reminded that they should cross school roads only within the marked crosswalks. We want everyone to be safe during our rush hours by avoiding any encounters of the dangerous kind.

Virtual Virginia

virtual virginia.....offers a wide range of courses, including various foreign languages. 

Check out the site for a full list of offerings and if interested, please speak with a guidance counselor.




Nottoway High School has added community service to the educational community serviceexperience. Students will be involved with helping others through projects developed in each homeroom.

Mr. Lafayette Dickens, executive director of Downtown Blackstone, Inc., has provided many suggestions of area needs that can be addressed by students, and additional community leaders are welcome to come forward with other such suggestions. Students are also free to come up with ideas as to how their homeroom groups can be of assistance to our local communities. Hopefully, these experiences will lead students to keep volunteerism as a part of their lives.



If you are worried about the well being or safety of an individual or worried about a situation that could endanger anyone at our school, click here to report your concerns. Place your student ID number in the subject line. All information will be kept confidential.

Mission Statement!

Daisy Hicks, Ed.D.The mission of Nottoway High School is to provide a positive, secure environment, which fosters academic, cultural and social growth. We aspire to cultivate life-long learners who continually grow, adapt and contribute in a diverse global society.

Welcome to Nottoway High School. I am honored to be your principal. I am a graduate of Nottoway High School so when I say I am honored I am truly humbled to be able to give back to my community. As we reflect and celebrate the great accomplishments of Nottoway High School we can clearly show that our students’ academic performance continues to grow. As we move forward to the start of a new year, we will continue to strive to provide the best educational experience possible. Teachers will teach to the best of their ability every day; guiding your child on a path that will give him/her the skills necessary for a productive future in college or a career after high school. The curriculum will be rigorous and the standards will remain high. Our students must be able to compete not just with students in Virginia, but our students must be able to compete with students around the world.

Students must complete all course requirements and pass End of Year Course assessments to successfully pass a class. To help parents know how his/her student is doing academically, Nottoway High School teachers will provide progress reports every four and a half weeks and reports cards every nine weeks. Please monitor your student’s progress and ask questions if you are not sure of the grades. Power Parent is a great tool that can be used to monitor your student’s progress. Power Parent is an online website that allows you to instantly see your child’s attendance record and grades as the teacher enters it. This is a valuable tool, and we hope you take advantage of it. You can sign up for Power Parent through your child’s guidance counselor
