I have a special needs child that the school basically ignored the whole year. When I asked for special provisions for the SOL - I was denied. The principal kept telling me I needed to allow my son to be tested so he could prove that he had learned. He failed all of his SOL tests and then we get a letter stating he needs to go to summer school because of his remedial SOL scores. Really? We're enrolling him in another school. If your child is blessed to not have any learning difficulties, you may be okay here, otherwise, seek another school.

My daughter started kindergarten at 4 years old because of a late birthday and is currently going into the 3rd grade and makes the principal's list on her report card and will also be entering the odessey program for the gifted. She didn't have any preschool or pre-kindergarten prior to entry. The teachers she has had have been wonderful and the rest of the staff have been really nice always greeting with smiles. She loves it and so do we! My husband attended Concord Elem as a child and enjoyed it then also. The new renovations are beautiful as well. The classes are great sizes, not too large, so each child gets individual attention. They also show support for the community in allowing the fire dept and rescue squads come in once a year to teach fire safety and prevention, which is also critical. I am a proud parent of a Concord Elem student!!!

they gave me a lot of problems i plan to transfer my child to another school as soon school year is over. This is not the school for my child. the teachers are really nice though and i like them very much very friendly but the rest definitely not. i cant wait till my child gets out of there. i plan to transfer her to a better school with more programs and more caught up in education and hopefully better and more understanding principals.

I have children that have attended Concord from kindergarten thru 5th grade. Most of the teachers are great. They do not have a great special ed program and when we had to transfer our children to another school because we moved I noticed they were extremely behind the rest of the children at the new school. I really enjoyed my children attending Concord but had second thoughts after they transferred out to another location. I did have a few issues with the principal that falsified information on a few occasions when I questioned him about yelling at some of the children. Other than that, I would give the school a #5 on a scale for 1-10. Most of the teachers are very friendly. I wouldn't call it the best school to choose but if you are in the area of Concord it is one of the better ones. Hope this helps!

My oldest daugther in getting ready to enter 3rd grade and has been at Concord since kindergarden. The teachers, staff, everybody at Concord are wonderful. I think that because it is a smaller school, you get the feeling that your child is cared for, not just with their education, but with their entire well-being.

This is my Childrens first time at Concord Elementary and so far we love it. It reminds me of an old fasioned down to earth school. Everyone is really nice and very friendly. The teachers have really worked with my children. I really like that this school has a stage for the plays. The other schools we have been to were not as organized as this one. I also like that Concord does prayer during P.T.A meetings. The only thing that I suggest to be a safer school is a teacher or someone should stand outside during the morning hours until school starts for the safety of the children, after all they are only Elementary kids and someone could easily snatch them up. Although I watch my kids go inside. I think it would be safer. Other than that the principal and staff are great.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
