A New Beginning

Located in a growing urban setting, Agnor-Hurt Elementary School opened in September 1992, welcoming 480 kindergarten through grade 5 students from Cale, Greer, Hollymead, and Woodbrook elementary schools. The school was officially named in 1991 in honor of Guy Agnor, former county executive, and Benjamin Hurt, an Albemarle educator and principal.

Agnor Hurt is one of the most diverse schools in Albemarle County, and the staff celebrates the students and their families. Agnor-Hurt now serves 572 students in grades pre-k through fifth. Located on Berkmar Drive parallel to Route 29, Agnor-Hurt has 84 staff and faculty members. One Agnor-Hurt teacher has won a prestigious Golden Apple Award for teaching excellence each year since 2000. A total of 23 languages are spoken at the school, and children from 16 different nationalities attend. Each year Agnor-Hurt holds an International Dinner and Dance. An active parent organization volunteers countless hours at the school, where students may also participate in a variety of clubs and activities. Agnor-Hurt never gives up on any child.
