Sure it's a good school but I wish our football team was a little better. If only we could beat northwood maybe next year.

I currently have my 3rd child at Concord Jr. High. I am very impressed with the staff there. They are very caring and great listeners. The teachers are great, especially the teachers for the children with disabilites. They make children with disabilities feel included by taking there own time after school to include these children in after school functions such as games and dances.

This school is great. The teachers care about the kids and there is plenty of opportunity to do extra stuff. I am a college art student now and some of the best instruction I recieved was at CJHS. If you have a problem you can count on help from the principal and the counselor. The teachers are also nice.

Concord Junior High puts kids first. Their staff is second to none and the system works to create that essential parent-student-teacher relationship. My children thrived at CJHS and are now successful college students. Bravo CJHS! You are appreciated.

I don't have a child in this school, but I applaud your assistant principal for taping that young kids pants up. If we had more school administrators like this at every school, things might be just a little bit better.

I couldn't be happier with CJH. I moved away from South Bend because of the horrible school system there, and believe that it was the best move that I could have made for my kids. My daughter was on the honor roll for the first time ever this year, and we're very proud of her. The teachers are very tuned into the importance of communicating with parents, and I'm thrilled about the school. The EdLine feature that they have is incredible. I'm able to monitor my daughter's grades at a minimum of 2x per month, it has helped both me and my daughter know where her energies need to be focused. I attribute that and the great teachers and staff and CJH for her success in school this year

I think Concord Junior High is a good school for the average child. However, it has been my experience that a child with a disability such as ADHD does not get the appropriate attention and help that they require to be successful in school. My son has struggled greatly for the past 2 years, despite all my efforts in communication with his counselor, teachers, and principal. I clearly feel that they could have and should have done more to help him succeed.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies.

About the tests


Indiana uses the A through F School Grading System to assess the overall performance of a school. For the 2011-2012 school year, schools were graded based on performance and participation levels in state standardized tests and student growth using the Indiana Growth Model. In addition, high schools were graded on four-year (on-time) graduation rates and college and career readiness indicators including Advanced Placment exam results and industry certification exam results.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
