Concord is located in the northeastern part of Cleburne County, which is in North Central Arkansas. It is a small, rural town 22 miles north of Heber Springs and 18 miles south of Batesville. The township is 2.8 square miles. Although small, Concord has a rich history. The community has been settled since the early 1800ís. Once a stopping point for wagon trains traveling along the Clinton-Batesville Road, it soon developed into a community whose name is derived from biblical scripture. It has remained primarily an agricultural area, with cattle and chicken farming as the main industries.
The Concord Public School can be dated back to the 1800ís when the initial land deed was given to the school in 1897. The earliest known school house was a log structure, which was located near the current school site. Since then, the school has continued to grow and educate generations of students from the surrounding area. Many residents and former students have become successful in both the music and business industries.
The school continues to provide top notch education as it has been awarded as one of the U.S. News and World Reports top rated school in the state. Student organizations such as FCCLA, FBLA, FFA have received national awards as well as state championships in golf and basketball.
New facilities continue to be constructed. A new addition to the elementary and high school have been completed as well as a new cafeteria, agricultural classroom/barn, and preschool facility.
The public school system in Concord has a rich and intricate history. Built by commitment of its citizens who firmly believed in the importance of education, the school has
had a tremendous impact on the students it has served. The community is close knit.
From its humble beginnings, Concord has come full circle. Family and community have and always will be an important way of life. The small town of Concord continues to hold onto its deep rooted traditions and small town values.
