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 SAGE content areas and competes with the top schools in the state. Churchill also ranks 1st or 2nd in many district sport championships 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 being Olympic hopefuls to participating in 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 providing 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 district recognized Excel Awards.
The 2017/2018 year will see even more adjustments to help students succeed. This year we are welcoming sixth graders to our school. We will be leaving the four period block (A/B) schedule and moving to a seven period daily schedule. The new schedule will allow students to meet with their core classes daily for the entire school year. In order to continue to allow students flexibility to take various elective classes, we will be condensing many electives to quarter length. This approach will allow elective classes to function more as exploratory classes so students can start to hone in on their interests prior to getting to high school.
