One of the BEST kept secrets in Concord. I am not one to write reviews however feel the importance of doing so in this case. Our daughter started Kindergarten with Ms.Ghelfie & Ms. Maeda (reading/ mastering between 80-100 sight words to fractions as well as singing in 2/musicals thanks in part to the Musical Director, Mr. Hammerson) because of them she absolutey loves school. The curriculum is intensive with a loving & strong support from family/ faculty not to mention the level of education my daughter has received. Tuition cost is competitively fair to that of private schools in the east bay as well as Scholarships and Financial Aid options available.

As a student at St. Agnes school. I have noticed that this school has many things that must be changed. The teachers sponsor and recognize the children of adults with a high income or in other words 'rich'. The teachers make most of the students feel targeted for no circumstance. The teachers' goal in most cases is to get students in trouble or accuse them for nonsense. I find very few of these teachers caring and loving towards students that don't have the income that satisfies them. In my personal opinion; i would not recommend this school for any children. The teachers treat specific students better than others. The safety is excellent only because the discipline is incredibly intimidating for any children. The recent posts that say anything positive or grateful is probably a student that has been treated with the best of hospitality; as i said before..teachers have favorites.

Horrible, just horrible. I just don't understand how bad a school could be, but St, Agnes lowers the standards for Cathloic education everywhere. Most of the teachers feel unqualified to even be working at a school, let alone an expensive, cathlioc one. The strict curriculum is 100% anit-freedom, your kids will not do anything that the ultra-tight staff allows. Uniforms, stale lunches, terrible education. Save your kids, time and money, avoid at all costs

Caring teachers and individual attention to students. Parents are very involved and no one is overlooked.

Educational focus is one of many benefits this institution offers. In short, you get your money's worth. Many parents in the Concord area that send their children to adjacent private Catholic schools comment on the educational strength of St. Agnes. By far one of the best school's in Concord where the staff and administration that balance the student's pace and capability of learning.

St. Agnes Elementary in Concord is a truly phenomenal school. Although our family does not have 'great' means, every penny we pay for my daughters tuition is well spent. Pro's: -Great care is taken to make sure that children are safe. One reviewer called some of the 'rules' ridiculous but I find them comforting. The rules are there for a reason.....to protect our children. -Administration & teachers go above & beyond on a regular basis. It's obvious that the staff enjoy the working environment and children. Each teacher that I've met has proven themselves to be a passionate advocate for education and children. - Resources, resources, resources. There are reading tutors, math tutors, a speech therapist, a school counselor. The school respects that each child learns at a different pace and creates a special plan for kids needing extra help. -Christian values of kindness, humility, character etc set the tone for a very peaceful campus

So many ridiculous rules and regulations. They really care a lot about getting their money. Favorite children and parents for sure. Dissapointing. The education is not that great.

Strong curriculum. It is worth sending your child here if you are willing to put up with the ridiculous guidelines the administration establishes-- i.e. no parking on the public street outside of the school to pick up your child.
