Concord Elementary is the best school in Jefferson County, and we have been to alot of different schools. The staff really cares about each childs education and needs. Most students are involved in one extracurricular activity or another. My children's academic levels are at there highest that they have ever been. Also, the school encourages the parents to be involved at the school which is great because most Jefferson County schools don't want the parents around they just want the parents money. Good job Concord your school is the best.
