I had to choose between Wasatch Jr. High and Churchill I selected Churchill because I had a negative experience with the Wasatch office administration. I am extremely pleased with my choice. The number one most outstanding thing so far is the kindness, and excellent manners shown by the student body. I am entering the school as a new 9th grader and everyone has been extremely kind and I have been very impressed.
I was a former student from 2008-2010. I heard good things about the school, so I transferred from Albion Middle School (which I absolutely hated) to Churchill. This was the best academic move of my life. The faculty was ALWAYS helpful. I also have to applaud my councilor, Mrs. Bradshaw, for helping me and my sister stay on top of things during a difficult time. Most of my teachers were great, especially those in the arts classes. Mrs. Searle and Mrs. McDermott (who left to care for her child) were especially supportive and helped me to thrive with art and music (not to mention the opportunities they created for me). I was not that good of a musician at first, but Mrs. McDermott put up with the noise so that I'd be 10x better by the end of 9th grade. It's not just the arts, though. The science classes are very hands-on and not very textbook involved, and regularly kept things interesting. For the most part, the students were kind to me and I made good friends. While there are always those kids who feel they must go out of the way to tease you, there were much, much less here than my previous school. I have very little against Churchill, and nothing against the faculty I had.
As other reviewers for this school have mentioned, our children insisted that we send them to this school; we were vacillating this one and another nearby JH. We have been very happy with the school, and our children have experienced no bullying or exposure to bad elements; all our worries about the typical aspects of JH have been put to rest since our kids started going here. The academics are excellent and they have a large number of AP classes to choose from. Their sports are good. The only things we would wish for that the school doesn't have are more sporting choices, a few more academic programs like debate, and for the district to enforce all teachers to use the canvas calendar routinely. Parents who are nervous about junior high should send your children here; it is a safe and supportive environment.
Churchill Jr. has a great environment and many of the students get involved. The teachers are excellent and have good experience, and Churchill is good in sports and academics.
I am a student Body officer at Churchill Junior High, and I absolutely adore Churchill. They have a great honors program and I'm learning a lot more than my friends at Wasatch that are also in Wasatch's honors program. The teachers are great, and there is a lot of extra-curriclurs available that are really fun, and the sports are great. I love churchill!
This has to be the worst school, the office administration leaves much to be desired.
We wanted our daughter to go to Wasatch Jr. High, but she insisted on Churchill and we have been happy with her choice. She loves the enviornment, the teachers and the fact that kids come there from all over the valley.
We weren't sure which Jr. High would be best for our son after sending him to a private school for two years. We are so glad that we heard about Churchill. He has had a great experience so far. The kids at the school come from all over the valley and are happy to be there. The faculty really strives to make learning fun, keeping academics at the top of their priorities. I only wish our neighborhood middle school was this good.
