I've awesome experience at Churchill High School! First off, our campus is beautiful. Our school has grown exponentially since its start in 1966, so we have had many additional buildings added. Although some buildings are old, I enjoy walking between buildings for class. This allows take a quick break and enjoy the fresh air. The staff at Churchill is amazing. All of the teachers I have had were very helpful and kind, and they helped me enjoy my classes. Churchill also has many traditions. Because our school is named after Winston Churchill, we love everything British. From our student council, or "Parliament", to flying the Union Jack on our flag pole, we love to add a British flair. There are also many ways to get involved. As a member of the dance team and choir, I have met my best friends and made memories to last a lifetime. My only complaint is that we use clear backpacks, but this was a district decision. Overall, I think Churchill is a great high school with lots to offer!

Churchill is a really really populated school with over 3 thousand people! I went to Alamo heights junior school for middle school and planning on going to Alamo heights high school after finishing middle school but my family had bought a house and was forced to transfer high school so we decided that i should go to Churchill. At first i really hated the idea, i didn't want to leave all of the friends i made from middle school, i didn't want to start over! But Churchill turns out to be a really good high school despite the amount of people it has in it. In the 4 years I've been studying in Churchill, I've seen 0 bullies and have never been bullied unlike middle school. It was a really competitive high school for ranking. Teachers, Churchill literally has the best teachers ever! They were the nicest people ever, they make learning environment better and classes more relaxing, shout out to Mr.Johnson, my favorite algebra 2 teacher. I would recommend this high school to future freshmen!
Of course everyone will perceive student behavior amd kindness differently, but teachers? Well, on an academic level, some teachers are worthy of their ability to engage their students and inspire, while others will simply just follow the rubric to get a paycheck. Essentially getting a full schedule where teachers care about their classes and not just see students as income sources, will be a gamble, but the counselors are prepared to help you until you find the right class you're comfortable In.
In all honesty, the history and science subjects for Advanced Placement (AP) are the greatest advanced classes to take. Advanced English and math will never be worthy classeses to take unless you just want to learn nothing. My best experience was taking regular English and switching around classes until I found the perfect teacher who actually gave a hoot about his classes. Mr.D!
