The teachers arnt motivational and inspiring. They give us sheets and hardly any hands on activities. Sometimes a student will cry after a teacher gets mad at them. That shouldn't happen. I think it's the worst middle school ever. I get up in the morning and I don't want to go. I only go because of my friends. I feel like the gifted program isn't all it could be.
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 know first hand how that is my daughter has gotten in trouble for silly things ex. not standing in line stright, asking to go to the rest room. The staff is not very helpful. I am so glad this is my childs last yaer there
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.
