I am currently a junior at Churchill and im not very satisfied with it. Obviously it is technically the best academic public school in the state, but there are many downsides to it as well. The school is very inconsistent. You either have a great teacher who is very open to helping students, or you have ...  Read more

I am a student at WCHS. This school is absolutely terrible. The teachers are mean, the students are self-centered, and the attendance lady is extremely moody. Your child has to wake up at 6AM every morning, and do hours of homework every night. This school organisms every test, for every class, on the ...  Read more

The wealth of the surrounding neighborhoods is certainly reflected in the student body, but I have found the kids here to be generally respectful and intelligent. In addition to outstanding academics, the school ...  Read more

Everything about this school is terrible. Most teachers are rude, the kids are stuck up, and the administration and office people are idiots. The one star is for a few teachers who actually care about the kids and truly want to help them with their education. If you're a parent considering sending ...  Read more

As a parent of two kids in Churchill I couldn't be happier. Academically this school is amazing. The teachers work hard to make sure the kids understand what is being tought. The Churchill Spirit is fantastic. My kids have never been this involved before and they feel a great pride in their school. They ...  Read more
