Concord Public Schools Reviews

I think the Concord Public School system is very strong education-wise. However, this leads to a very stressful environment because of competition. Everyone wants to be the best— in the best classes and getting the best grades. One failure can lead to a total mental breakdown.
The administration and faculty is attempted to help relieve this stress, but there is still a long way to go.
On the whole, the teachers are very nice and helpful. They are willing to meet with you outside of class. Classes are rigorous but fun.
As in most schools, the cafeteria food is not very high quality, but the people who work in the cafeteria are very kind.
The biggest downside to the Concord school system is the lack of diversity. The vast majority of students are white, and only a handful of black students are in each class through the METCO program.

The Concord Public school system is incredibly well staffed at resourced. It provides and excellent education and leads students to great success in life. A couple downsides are the lack of diversity as well as the student stress environment throughout the school. The college process is overwhelming, and while they prepare you for it, it still puts enormous pressure on the students.
Concord, Massachusetts is a really great place to grow up in. It's a safe community that wants the best for their students, but it is extremely stressful. Most of this town is upper middle class and so it is expected that the students who come out of the Concord Public School Systems go to top universities and earn similar salaries to their parents. The students are extremely competitive and the environment is very stressful, but we have all the necessary resources and motivation to succeed.
