This school is absolutely , I haven't experienced the amount of drug use anywhere I had ever gone before this. Don't send to your child here if you value their education.
I just stumbled upon this site and was disappointed, but not surprised by some of the comments that were made at the time they were made. I noticed that none of the reviews are very current and am interested in seeing if our image has improved. I graduated from Concord, my children graduated from Concord, and I have been teaching in Concord for over 25 years. I am very proud to be employed by and be a part of the Concord Community Schools and the community. We have had struggles during some of the years I have been here, but I am strongly encouraged by the improvements made recently and am looking forward to more achievements and success in the years ahead. Please share your concerns and praises for our system, we are hear to listen and to learn! Thanks!
This was once a fantasic school with wonderful students, caring teachers and administrators with fore sight to keep the school in high attendance demand & an above the state average on MEAP Scores. Having 2 sons that graduated from Concord in 2002 and 2007, we have seen a tremdous decline in overall values and goals set forth by the current administration & teachers. We maintained an active involvement in our childrens school activities until our youngest graduated in 2007. From 2002 through 2007, the school went through several caring adminstrators & excellant teachers that were either recuited to other schools outside of the district or state or just plain quit due to the current administrator, board & principal. If you are lucky enough to be in a position of choosing another school for your children, I highly recommend it and your children will thank you later.
In many ways, Concord schools have much potential. However, this potential is rarely realized except by those students who take it upon themselves to go above and beyond the expectations presented to them. There are some truly steller teachers, and there are some that are not. The principals, as a rule, are quite good. The current superintendent leaves much to be desired. As does the school board, for that matter. All in all, I feel that a child _can_ have a good education here if they choose to work and can get past the hurdles that are presented.
I am a high school student at Concord, I love all of the people here. Our school is one of the best schools in our Big 8. We have the best teaching staff because they know and care about the students. Our academic program is one of the best becouse they let us choose our own class.
Concord has a poor rating when it comes to certain sports and putting girls on them.Like if your not skinny,you won't be able to do cheerleading.It took my mom 6 almost 7 years before my mom got me into special ed.Because Concord doesnt care about they're students.
My son attends the high school and I have had nothing but problems with the schools since 6th grade. He has struggled with school for a long time. I have hired a tutor to help him, because the school couldn't help me. He is still having academic problems. He can't go into a special class to receive the help he needs because he doesn't qualify, but he isn't getting what he needs from the school either. I am now faced with - what do I do now and where do I go to get help for my child. I am very unhappy with the education that my child receives from Concord Schools.
I believe Concord High School has a lot of potentinal to excel in this state. The Math program at Concord is something to be desired though. Both of my girls have had problems with math and don't find any help with the teachers that are there. I am not sure how to help them except to get them a tutor so they can excel when they go off to college. The town is great, I was an outsider but have become friends with many people in Concord. If if you give the town a chance it can be a wonderful opportunity.
Concord has problems with favoring certain kids who have well known last names in the community. They run by treating the kids who have certain last names nice and the other kids unfairly. The academics are terrible and the teachers play favortism with certain students. If you are just moving in the community I suggest having your child attend the CSO instead of the high school. The CSO is an alternative school in Concord were no favortism is played and the kids have a better chance of making it in the real world.
I attended Concord from 1987-1995. You can expect a lot of the same problems with drugs and alcohol compared with any where else. Your biggest problem is being accepted in the community. This is a small town with a few known status names. The school activities are very limited in the sports sections and community involvement is low when it comes to up-grades for any needed school funding. This is a very sheltered area with low economical growth. On the plus side a child be challenged in the early grades and given plenty of freedom to excell beyond the his/her ('s) grade lvl. Once you hit grades 7 and up you're left to repeat all that past information over again with little build up on your current lvl and no real challenges are offered to make your dream and excel. Teachers and parents can be to blame for this.
