I am not at all impressed with concord middle school. My child has been bullied all year and no one seems to care. Communication is horrible. It took one teacher 5 days to respond to my email and has yet to return my call.

I agree with the lack of academic challenges for the 'average' child.. the child who is NOT in gifted classes. There is a huge discrepancy in the amount and quality of homework/projects between these 2 groups. That's not fair. I believe that kids will rise to the challenge. Set the bar high! They ALL will try to reach it! Overall, a disappointing experience and not at all preparing them for high school!

I like what I see my granddaughter learning. That tells me there is a good teacher there. Her parents are very active.

This is a terrible school for multiple reasons. First is the bullying, e.g., We met with an asst. principal to discuss how our child was being bullied. Examples are my child being hugged by strangers so tight it hurt, stomping on her feet, knocking her into lockers/walls, verbal harassment, etc. We named one particular child, and the asst principal responded that this child 'is not a bad kid' - however a few weeks later that child was suspended for TWO WEEKS, and had been suspended multiple times in the past. Nothing changed. Second, unless your child is in a gifted class, they are taught only the very basic lessons. Little homework is given, few projects assigned, and grading requirements are VERY lenient. I was appalled at the science fair seeing projects with misspelled words, phrasing that didn't make sense, and sloppiness. This school is just a big kid daycare.

My daughter currently attends CMS and is extremely happy there. She has never complained of discipline issues and in fact appreciates that students with such issues are removed from the classroom. She had one incident of bullying early in the year which was resolved to our satisfaction. Bullying is not tolerate at CMS.

I had a child who attended Concord Middle School in 6th grade and he had a really hard time. He came from making straight A's and his grades began to drop. We had a time with him being bullied and he even played football. We moved and he has been at a different middle school which his brother now attends also. His grades are back up, he has never been bullied at this middle school and he plays football. He just finished 8th grade and he stated that this school the teachers really help you and he would never go back to Concord Middle School. He could not get his teachers to help him when he would ask for assistance. There truly is a big difference between the school my children are now attending. We are searching for a larger home my children insist we do not purchase one in CMS district.

This school has okay teachers, they don't just punish kids for no reason. They encourage children to succeed and get kids to do their hardest. Our test scores are excellent and i'm very sorry to leave here. I enjoyed my time at Concord and enocourage people to send their kids here.

This school is the worst school to let your child attend. They turn there back on everything that is important for your child to learn. If you have any, any other alternatives for your child please choose that before sending your child here. Two of my children had the unfortunate experience and we're moving so this will not have to go on

This school is the worst school I have ever been at. They punish kids for no reason. They take discipline too far.

I have never been happy about concord middle school from the day i entered it. Many of the teachers are unfair and just plain mean. I usually have a couple of these each year. They act like they enjoy punishing kids for things. They punish people when they were trying to help. The education is ok but not above average. But my main complaint is the stuff the teachers put you through on day to day things.

This school is great! The teachers are very caring & enthusiastic. They incorporate technology into instruction and try to do activities with other teams. Violence isn't a problem here. In 3 years at this school, we had maybe 1 or 2 fights each year, and they were managed immediately. Class sizes are small and very manageable, allowing teachers & students to get that personal contact. The school also has programs to motivate students to do well, such as Renaissance and the merit events each quarter. Students are provided incentives to succeed in school, and these programs work. Many of the teachers here have graduate level degrees or are currently pursuing graduate level degrees.
