Learners today; leaders tomorrow.
Churchill is an outstanding school mainly because of the outstanding students we house. The school is committed to giving these students the highest chance for success in all areas. Churchill scores above the state average in all content areas and competes with the top schools in the state. Churchill also ranks 1st or 2nd in most sport championships in the district nearly every year. The school’s band and orchestra have scored in the top competition placements in the past several years as well. Students that attend here are highly motivated and involved from everything such as, Olympic hopefuls to local music and dance ensembles to being recognized for their community service.
Churchill is committed to helping our students meet or even exceed their potential. The school has always had a strong commitment to academic rigor, character development and leadership opportunities. The teachers at Churchill are committed to this vision and each week meet together to review data and develop plans for student success and growth. The teachers at Churchill have also been recognized for their work with students from winning the state recognized Huntsman Award to Excel Awards.
The 2015/2016 year will see even more adjustments to help students succeed. This year we are implementing “Charger Time,” a program to give focus to helping kids understand the basics of study skills and giving space for keeping on top of their academics. A section of this will be used for intervention and enrichment. Students that are succeeding will have extended activities to deepen their learning. Students falling behind will receive more direct help. Students will also have access to the same teacher daily to develop a deeper relationship which studies show will optimize success. The school also received a grant to work on Positive Behavior Intervention and Support for students. This will help align the culture of the school to develop not just great academic students but leaders as well.
