Mission Statement:
We believe every student should have the knowledge and skills necessary to excel at college and career. Our school builds upon a strong foundation of relationships between students and staff, but then fully develops around a rigorous academic program. Our goal is not just graduation but adult happiness and success.

Program Description:
Churchill is a caring academic community where teachers, students, parents and colleagues work collaboratively and where decision-making focuses on doing what’s best for students first and foremost. Churchill High School has a unique spirit: We believe that high school education should be academically rigorous and attentive to the needs of the community, because intellectual and personal growth go hand in hand. We believe that good schooling sows the seeds of lifelong wisdom, and that no life is complete until it is made useful to others. “Lancer Pride” is how we describe this spirit of our school.

School Highlights:

  • All 9th and 10th grade students choose a small learning community that fulfills Oregon standards and prepares students for higher education, advanced work and career goals

  • STEM programs include environmental science, engineering, robotics and digital arts
  • Strong elective programs with an extraordinary music and drama department, a college-level graphic design program, and science electives in robotics, marine biology and atmospheric science
