I am glad that my son attends Churchill High School. The staff cares about the students, it's family oriented and a great environment for any student. I am pleased with the education that my son is receiving.

Our daughter and our son cherished their time at Churchill. The staff and teachers are passionate about education. From academic clubs to athletics to band, there is something to engage every student. Our kids loved their high school years and as parents, we feel they were given an excellent education there.

While the school provides excellent oppurtunities to the few that are acadmically gifted there are a lot of issues. My son is a student there and tells me almost daily about the fighting that goes on in the hallways and the cafeteria. I believe that the administration is doing what they can witht he problem but it is very concernig to me as far as safety...

The teachers are amazing at Churchill. They really care for the students. All of the staff does. The administrators really want what is best for the students. The curriculum can be a bit on the tough side, but they offer a wide range of classes for different leveled students. The staff really wants you to succeed in every way possible.

I really like Churchill because some people and teachers are really friendly. and churchill is safe as well so people can relax and enjoy themselves while learning new things. I will be graduating soon and i'm very proud of it. Ever since i came here which was my junior year second semester my grades have really improved and i have learned many things here as well. However, there are some teachers here who can expect way too much out of there students and some teachers that don't do anything at all. But otherwise i realy like this school and it is sooo much better than my old school.

I'll be graduating from Churchill shortly. Some things this school does very well, and other things that need work. Overall, it's fairly safe. The MathScienceComputers program is excellent. The teachers are hit or miss. There are a few great teachers in each department, but there are also some who are unprofessional, not easy to work with, or who expect too much or way too little from their students. The counseling department is no different. Many counselers are frequently not accessible to students, and most fail to promote scholarship opportunities (especially the National Merit scholarships) and are able to answer few, if any, questions about colleges except Schoolcraft, where many Churchill students end up. My counselor was not familiar with the CommonApp, the application used for many prestigious colleges. The building needs work; in the winter, many rooms are uncomfortably cold (many of my teachers taught in their winter coats).

There are things I like about Churchill and things I don't. Most of the teachers are great, easy to get ahold of and are involved. However, some teachers aren't and it gets very frustrating when your child is doing great in a class with a good teacher and then the next semster, they are changed to a teacher that isn't a good match. I hear it's crowded in the school and I know it gets very cold in the winter and way to hot in the spring or summer.

My child just graduated from Churchill and I felt is was OK four years ago and got progressively worse. Fights, no accountability, etc. I don't blame the faculty, it's other parents that don't hold their children accountable that make it bad for everyone. I'm sure it's the same everywhere.

I'm new at CHS and I think it's a pretty good school so far. So many students are involved in sports and after school activities. And there are so many things you can get involved in.

Churchill has marvelous a support program for kids with Aspbergers or high functioning autism. The AI program is unique. The small caseload allows the staff to meet the needs of these challenging students. It mainstreams the students for all academics and electives. If needed, the teacher and/or the full-time parapro will attend class with the student to troubleshoot, monitor behavior, and assist the teacher. They are immediately available to handle any student crisis. Room D-15 becomes their 'home' at school. The students 6th period class is Self-Awareness. During this period they meet in a variety of groups. One day a week they meet with the Speech/Language teacher and work on social skills. Two days a week they have study skills and another two days of group social activities. My son's Occupational therapist pulls him out of this period so he doesn't miss an academic class.

I just graduated from Churchill this past june and I loved it. But my sister who is a sophmore hates going there because the hallways are always crowded, there are more fights than last year and she has had threats made to her. My parents are planning on moving so she and my youngest sister won't have to go there anymore.

I was a student at Churchill and graduated in the class of 2000. I view my time at Churchill as one of the best times of my life. I was in CAPA, and also participated in advanced classes. The teachers made me feel welcome and important. The CAPA program is wonderful, and although I didn't move on to a career in dance or vocal, the experience changed my life, my work ethic, and how well I work with other people. I lived in the Stevenson district, & went to Churchill because of CAPA. I'm so glad I did. It's a wonderful, diverse, and accepting school.

Churchill High School is a great school for anyone. There are extracurriculars and sports all throughout the year! Everyone is encouraged to join all activities. The teachers here are the most helpful that anyone can find and the counselors and principals are very understanding if a problem ever arises. I have found that it is easy to find a group of friends to fit into here at Churchill High School. There are programs here that can not be found elsewhere in the district for mentally trained students; math, science and computers; and the creative and performing arts program. CHS is definitely one of the best schools around.

I am a former student of Churchill and I think that the school was wonderful. Students were encouraged to be involved with extracurricular activities and the faculty was really interested in their students.
