    Sure it's a good school but I wish our football team was a little better. If only we could beat northwood maybe next year.

    I currently have my 3rd child at Concord Jr. High. I am very impressed with the staff there. They are very caring and great listeners. The teachers are great especially the teachers for the children with disabilites. They make children with disabilities feel included by taking there own time after school to include these children in after school functions such as games and dances.

    Wonderful Staff !!!!!! My Daughter is in the 7th grade. As her first year in jr high I felt that transition from elementry was very smooth. A great teacher makes all the difference.

    CJH has been great for our daughter who we brought from South Bend Community Schools. Her grades have went from D's & F's to B's & C's. Next stop A's

    This school is great. The teachers care about the kids and there is plenty of opportunity to do extra stuff. I am a college art student now and some of the best instruction I recieved was at CJHS. If you have a problem you can count on help from the principal and the counselor. The teachers are also nice.

    Concord Junior High puts kids first. Their staff is second to none and the system works to create that essential parent-student-teacher relationship. My children thrived at CJHS and are now successful college students. Bravo CJHS! You are appreciated.

    I love CJHS.. i go there right now im a 7th grader.. and i couldnt be happier.. mr. caird is just so nice )

    I don't have a child in this school but I applaud your assistant principal for taping that young kids pants up. If we had more school administrators like this at every school things might be just a little bit better.

    I couldn't be happier with CJH. I moved away from South Bend because of the horrible school system there and believe that it was the best move that I could have made for my kids. My daughter was on the honor roll for the first time ever this year and we're very proud of her. The teachers are very tuned into the importance of communicating with parents and I'm thrilled about the school. The EdLine feature that they have is incredible. I'm able to monitor my daughter's grades at a minimum of 2x per month it has helped both me and my daughter know where her energies need to be focused. I attribute that and the great teachers and staff and CJH for her success in school this year

    I think Concord Junior High is a good school for the average child. However it has been my experience that a child with a disability such as ADHD does not get the appropriate attention and help that they require to be successful in school. My son has struggled greatly for the past 2 years despite all my efforts in communication with his counselor teachers and principal. I clearly feel that they could have and should have done more to help him succeed.
