As a graduate from the school I will tell you it's what one makes of it. If it were not for this school, I can tell you I would be a failure, not only academically but spiritually as well. There are problems with this school, yes. But as are with EVERY OTHER school. The community in this school is unlike any public school. It is a safe enviornment where a student can build a relationship with the kids AND teachers. Thats rare. The people that only complain about everything about the school WANT there to be something wrong. That will not have a good time. As a former student I am VERY thankful I went to Cordia. It has only made me a better person Academically and Spiritually. As to the quality of education, do the work and you will succeed. Simple as that.
My son is a 10th grader at Concordia Jr/Sr High School. I like that it's a small school. Ideally this would mean that the students receive more one-on-one help. This isn't the case. There are a few teachers who are wonderful, but the other ones are oblivious to the fact that their students are failing. They offer no assistance to those students. They don't even inform the parents that their child is failing. The principal is far from helpful. He's condescending and acts like he has a chip on his shoulder, to both the kids and the parents. For nearly $9000/year tuition, it is NOT worth it!
As a former Student I would say that the school was great back in 2005, but they seem to have walked down the wrong path recently. They aren't very honest and forthcoming with their problems, which is natural every school has problems, and it really worry's me that they are enticing people to their school with hollow promises. They say that they are a top-notch educational school, and they are average, but they are not top-notch. They state that they are a "college-preparatory school" but I can tell you that they are definitively NOT. I can state this from past experiences with Concordia. I was once a student at Concordia and the teachers were nice and polite and the staff was great but the education was terrible. Then I left and went to a new school and then moved to a legitament college prep school. And let me tell you that Concordia is not what they say they are. I don't want to sound mean because I have a lot of family and friends involved with the school but it is just the truth. They state that they have a safe facility, but it is truly not. So hopefully you consider my words and aren't oblivious to the fact that this school isn't the best and not very trustworthy.
Condoria's biggest strength are teachers who care and focus on helping the individual student achieve their greatest potential. Some of their religious based teaching can be judgemental and bigoted, but my son came in with values of tolerance so it was an opportunity for him to stand up for what he believed in. And it's a small price to pay for an excellent education. I hope that they work on teaching tolerance along with their Christian values.
