School Reviews

  • Recommended October 05, 2010 - Concord is a great school to receive a well rounded education. The students and staff are friendly and helpful to everyone. Students test high on all academic tests and are offered extracurricular activities in the arts and athletic programs. The facilities are always clean and several building have been remodeled. Parents are very good to get involved with academics and athletics. Concord school recognizes outstanding students by having an awards assembly for academics and athletics at the end of the school year. My children, and I, received an excellent education at Concord School. - Posted by Parent

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
