    Most of the Concord Middle teachers are excellent well educated creative kind and hardworking. Both my children thrived intellectually emotionally and socially. Unfortunately the current principal is incompetent. She does not communicate well and she does not return emails or phone calls. Well she does respond to "certain parents". She plays favorites with parents teachers and student.

    I was forced out of this school due to bullying. Teachers administrators coaches all did absolutely nothing to help me. I was beat up taken out of school on cruches verbally abused. Eventually i had to change schools and go to a private institution causing financial hardship on my parents. No attention was given to me the teachers routinely said "kids will be kids." I hope things have changed there because of the faculty there i was suicidal till my first year of college.

    I'm a student and i have had a perfectly good experience at this school. I think I will be prepared for high school. I feel like we could go on more field trips and maybe there could be more tracking so kids are in classes that suit them best. I have loved some of my teachers and despised others so as most things go it's a mixed bag.

    While the school system in Concord is fine the Principal and staff are underwhelming. The principal is not experienced and should not hold the position she does. The Superindendent hails from controversy and does not support the people who make up this community but backs her principal even when good jugdment is impaired. If you are looking for a school where the principal is strong this is not your school. Unfortunately she reigns over both of the middle schools so there is no relief.

    great teachers understand te children but if they do not pay attention the teachers teach them to listen by not repeating directons

    CMS is a school filled with amazing educators who overcome administrative obstacles to provide a high-level experience to the students they serve.
