There are a few great teachers but far too many who are just checking the box and doing the minimum. Most are teaching to the test with no regard for real learning or bored/unchallenged students. The playground is largely unsupervised. Students get bullied/ beat up on a regular basis with little or no consequence. One can drive by in any given day and observe the students who have placed themselves far from the school, close to the road, out of site of the 'supervisors'. Other schools in the district have quite well supervised playgrounds.

The principal here is just plain awesome! He really cares about the kids. The teachers are top notch. Our third grade teacher was the best! She made learning fun and she wants to be there. Parent involvement is over the top. Parents go above and beyond to help out.

Concord school is excellent. The principal, teachers, and even the janitors go the extra mile to make students and parents feel welcome. Communication between school staff and parents is top notch and as a parent, I always feel well informed about what is happening at the school and in my child's classroom. So, too, parents are always welcome and encouraged to volunteer in numerous ways. My help has always been appreciated. In my experience as a volunteer in the classroom, I am impressed with the the quality of teaching and learning and the happy, well mannered students who seem so engaged in the learning activities.
