Concord Elementary School has proven itself to be big in heart as well as academic quality. Its students and faculty are a true community of learners. I am blessed to have Concord Elementary as my children's school. They are greeted by name each morning from a principal who truly cares. I also know they are being taught by qualified and dedicated teachers.
My son was born with a learning disability and concord school teacher with special education really help him alot. His doctor told us that this was the best school for him so we moved to sylvan springs so that he could get a great education. Mr. Foster and his staff has done a great job. Keep it up you the best.
A down home county school. A great learning place. My kids love it. The teachers are great and want the kids to excel.
In my opinion, Concord Elementary is one of the best elementary schools in the state. My oldest son attended Concord for six years. He received a wonderful education and he loved it. My youngest son is in the 4th grade at Concord. He has never had one complaint about the school, and he loves and respects all of his teachers. The principal, Mr. Foster, is the main reason that this school excels. He has quality teachers and staff, and he gets to know each child personally. The PTO officers are constantly planning events to further improve the school. Parents get involved at Concord, and that is what it takes to have an excellent school. Kim Gossett
Best school, staff and location for over 80 years. Jefferson county needs this school in this location. I have 2 childern(girls) in this school and I would like to see my grand childern go to school at the same location. If it was good enough for my great uncle, it's good enough for my girls.
I have two children that attend Concord. It is a wonderful school. Everyone knows each other. We are like family.

My daughter has been in Concord for three years. Neither of us would have her go anywhere else! She is receiving a wonderful education as well as social skills and moral values. All the parents and students agree that 'Concord Rocks! The reason for this is the staff. Everyone from the lunchroom workers, office staff and faculty to the principal,take the time to get to know the children on a personal level... and they all HONESTLY CARE! Mr Foster (the pricipal) knows every single child in school by name and knows the parents as well. He cares more than ANY principle I have ever encountered! WE LOVE CONCORD ELEMENTARY!
Concord elementary rocks! my daughters have been there for three years and we have to leave this year :( mr. Foster, mrs. Mccroskey, mrs. Forsyth, and mrs. Mahaffey are the greates teachers. I have loved every minute of their first years of school. This is a top notch school and i must agree that this is a great example of how a school should operate. I cannot thank all of the teachers and mr. Foster for an awesome three years. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My daughter is now preparing to go on from Pittman to Hueytown HS. We will always value her years at Concord as her best. During her time there she and many others lost their house in a tornado and that time of our life would have been much mord difficult had it not been for the the principal, David Foster, and all the teachers. At concorrd she not only got a good solid education but was able to develop her social skills which is so inmpoortant for an only child. It's not a new, bright, shiny place but is kept clean and David does a great job of getting parents involved in improvements. In these days of impersonal education it is nice to see as principal they greet each student by name at the door every morning and is interested in their individual progress.
Concord Elementary is a wonderful example of how a school should operate. There is always quality teacher and parent involvement in the education of our children. I know my children are well cared for and are being taught by teachers who sincerely care. I attended concord myself, as do both of my children. I am proud to be a part of it!
Concord is an awesome school! Both of my children have attended Concord and we loved it. I wish it went through the 12th grade. The principal, teachers, and staff are so caring. I would recommend Concord to everyone!'
This is a wonderful school. The teacher, parents, and children all work together to make their school the best. I would recommend it to anybody.
