My children have gone to Churchill for the last four years. Over the last few years the school has really gone down hill. New principal is more focused on social issues and less on education. The bright spot for this school are the International High School, AP classes and the computer classes, that's were the great teachers are! I highly recommend that you consider the International program. The teachers really care, the students are dedicated to learning and they will be ready for college. The Cross Country, Track and Football Programs have great coaches that really care about the kids. Sadly, that can not be said about the Boy's basketball program. If your child is lucky enought to get the right teachers, they can get a better than average education. But you as a parent will have to stay on top of it for all four years.

I went to this school for my 4 years of high school They have plenty of AP classes and CAMs to choose from. The Track and Cross country program is very good. The coaches are the best and most compassionate I have seen. They really care about their athletes. The teachers are also very good. They truly want you to succeed. Most kids are pretty nice and I made a lot of good friend. The school also has pretty small classes which are very helpful for a lot of students and you get more teacher time. I would definitely recommend this school.

A great community feeling. Staff/teachers are very helpful and available to students for help, if needed, on a daily basis. Smaller class sizes compared to Sough Eugene High School, has made a big difference for my daughters accedemic success.

My daughter has attended Churchill since 9th grade. Overall this is a very good school. They offer AP classes and CAM's. My daughter took the MED CAM this year. I have been a bit disappointed in the attention to students reading abilities and math skills. My daughter is a Honor student and has a 3.75 GPA, but struggles with reading and basic math skills. They load up the kids with way too much H/W and cram them with too much workload (my personal opinion). Teachers seem to put too much emphasis on artwork (like coloring & poster board projects) than academics. Most kids are good. The classrooms gave me a closed in feeling. Sports are plentiful, no shop courses offered. Parent involvement is good. Staff is Fair to Good

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
