School Reviews

  • Recommended March 14, 2014 - All three of my children have graduated from Churchland and have loved every minute of their high school careers. I am a firm believer that each individual will get out of their education exactly what they put into it. One of my children left private school to attend Churchland to play sports. My daughter has been a tri-sport athlete every year and was the first female to score playing football in our division ever recorded. Dr. Bectol is a wonderful, caring, spirited principal who you will find at almost every sporting event, including the swim meets! She does it all! - Posted by Parent
