Concord is a wonderful school! The staff are dedicated, hard-working, innovative, collaborative, and student-focused. There has been incredible growth at Concord in recent years and it is undoubtedly a school on the move. The dual language and international education focus in both the traditional and dual classrooms expose students to global perspectives and enrich and deepen school learning. The student body is rich with a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives - creating a rich environment for learning and collaboration among peers. This is an incredibly special school that is full of growth, innovation, and student success and enrichment.
The atmosphere at our school has declined in the past four years since the arrival of the current principal who consistently micromanages the staff and undermines teachers. The increase enrollment of the West Seattle families have brought a false sense of white entitlement to our school. Worse of all, academic growth has declined since the transitioning of principals. That should tell you something.
I love this school. My son is learning his lessons in Spanish and English. It's great!
School Cafeteria atmosphere is terrible! It is so loud in there I feel for the kitchen staff and the monitors something needs to be done. In my day we would never be allowed to be that loud or able to leave without raising our hands or if the table and floor area was not cleaned. The food looked great but not the Cafeteria what a mess the kids couldn't even stack the trays at the window correctly the lady at the window had to keep telling them to do so and get all the garbage off the plate.
Horrible! Unorganized. They cram all the English only students with all the special needy child that have behavioral issues. While they care only for the dual language classes. The principals and admins do not care to address this issue. I am pulling my child out of this school immediately. The way the school is structured, it will be holding my child back. Principal is not dedicated in helping reorganize the school. I give it a ZERO (0) score but this won't let me submit this review if I didn't choose at least 1*.
What a great school. It has issues that all schools have but the teachers and support staff all genuinly care about the students.
A great little community school where many of the students are children or grandchildren of past student caring staff that knows the students and their families a good variety of programs to fill the needs of the students.
This school has lots of diversity, beautiful students, beautiful interior decoration, and a fantastic drama program.
