Growing up and attending events at churchill when I was only in middle school were always great! I always got excited to attend Churchill. However, after my freshmen year at churchill everything seemed to go down hill. Blast used to be this big event and the music/theatre department was the most fantastic thing. Teachers didn't receive the respect and acknolegement they deserved. By the time my senior year hit all the most enjoyable activities and events went down the drain. The music and theatre program added away and it felt like our whole senior year was taken away from us. Churchill is a good school but my experience seemed to fade throughout my 4 years attending.

Churchill is no doubt an academically-challenged school, filled with a plethora of rigorous courses to choose from. However, the school becomes very competitive as a result, being very college-oriented. The teachers are extremely passionate when it comes to teaching, but also helpful and supportive. There are a bunch of clubs and activities to fill your afternoons, as well as different sport teams to be apart. School spirit isn't necessarily fantastic, but it's definitely better than some schools. When it comes to applying colleges, there are a lot of resources to guide you in the right direction. Overall, good school with driven students.
Great education. Some great teachers, some not-so-great teachers. Very preppy school that I've never fit well into. Just have to find your group! Also, bathrooms have NO soap, which confuses me because we're rich in this area, and the school doesn't supply us with soap in our bathrooms, which is also disgusting.
