Excellent school with the ability to meet diverse needs successfully and with much care to the whole student! My children left children with strong organizational skills, excellent academic performance, and an understanding of the larger world via their classmates/families and their respective cultures.
I have two children at Churchill who are in special ed. Churchill staff, administrators and teachers always give my kids the attention and care they need to get through their school day. Churchill also has a very large percentage of kids - over 20% - who are not native english speakers, these children speak over a dozen different languages, yet Churchill manages to stay above average in every category.
The teaching staff and admin folks really care about the kids and all work together to make sure each child is successful!
I'm very proud to send my kids to Churchill Elementary, because it offers an excellent education to a very diverse population. The principal and all the staff and teachers are really great who helping our kids to be successful academically in an exceptional learning and supportive environment with continuous improvement in programs and services.
Very strong math and reading curriculum. Weekly music and art classes with special musical yearly and art available on 'Artsonia'. Good physical education class daily and encouragement to be active on school breaks. Parents very involved in PTA activities.
Churchill offers a great education to a diverse population. I do not know of another school where the students experience such diversity and receive an outstanding education. Students not only learn academia, but also experience how to live and work with people that are not just like them. Students also learn that, despite our differences, we are also very much alike. The class sizes are small, which facilitates greater learning and allows the teachers to differentiate. The biggest issue is that we are out of space. The bathrooms, lunch room, gym, and music and art rooms get no rest and are very crowded. Presently we have portables to keep class sizes down, but that does not help the areas that are crowded. Next year we will have 3 children at Churchill and I could not ask for a better place for our children to be educated.
I have a 2nd grade boy in this school.He loves it. We moved from Maywood, Illinois. And I can say that the teachers make the kids think more, give more homework, and try new things. My family and I won't more because our other two boyz will also attend Churchill.
