Our experience at Concord was wonderful until the new director arrived. We were at Concord for 7 years and hoped to graduate our daughter from there, but the school has changed it's entire vision. At the present time I would not recommend this school and are saddened by the changes. How sad when one person can destroy a beautiful school.
I have attended Concord for seven years and found the academics challenge me to achieve more, as well as the freedom and creativity I can express in the arts. I would recommend Concord to anyone. The teachers seek to have a personal relationship with students so we can reach our potential, they are hard working and dedicated to our future. Having it be a K-12 school offers older kids to be positive role models and develop leadership skills. Concord is truly a community atmosphere where everyone is accepted and encouraged to be themselves. It lives up to its standards as a School of Excellence. The arts integration is a strong foundation of our school and I feel like having this has helped reach more students in a ways that exploit individual learning skills.
We have called this school home for the past 4 years. However, under the current leadership I have lost faith in the direction and dedication to the original mission statement. At this time it will not be the school for my three children in the future. At one time it was a beautiful environment where the potential of all students was met and most times exceeded....not anymore. I would not recommend this school.
this is my 6th year also,5th grade is going to be so much fun this year.
Love the arts-integrated curriculum and small school, family-type learning atmosphere.
This is my 5th year at Concord, and I love it because the arts-integrated program allows me to use my creative abilities in all my classes. I think it's the best school in the nation, and I'm happy to be a Concord kid!
Arts + academics= Concord! Our teachers, parents and students make our school a great place for learning and sharing-thank you!!!
A great combination of Arts, Academics, and a caring, friendly environment.
The student to teacher ratio is great and they really care about teaching the kids
My four grandchildren looks forward going to Concord Academy-Petosky. They are learning so much and are eager to learn more. Thank you Concord Academy-Petosky. Keep doing the wonderful things that makes this school outstanding.
It's like a great big happy family! Kids learn to treat each other with respect, it has wonderful Arts programs and an excellent academic program. We couldn't ask for more!
Concord Academy-Petoskey has taught my kids to be creative problem solvers, has prepared them wonderfully for college (one is a sophomore in Engineering @ Univ. of Michigan and one will be a freshman @ Savannah College of Art & Design in the Fall of 2010, has taught them @ their level no matter what 'grade' they were in, has given them the confidence to sing, dance and speak in public and on stage, and most importantly has helped nurture them to be PRODUCTIVE, respectful, honest, unselfish, generous citizens of this democratic, free nation.
An arts-integrated K-12 school that places high nationally for academics as well!
Concord Academy-Petoskey is a great school! All four of my children attend and really enjoy the curriculum, teachers, and fellow classmates! I am very happy with Concord, all the activities it offers, and the friendly environment!
I love how our school is focused around an arts curriculum. What a great way to learn!
This is a school that truly cares about the child as a whole. The integration of fine arts just enhances the education my children get, which is the greatest in Northern Michigan!
The Concord Academy is a wonderful school. The children learn so much more there. The caring and teaching go hand in hand. Thank you!
