Churchill Junior High School

    The seventh and eighth grade program not only continues the journey from Hammarskjold Middle School but leads into the official high school program which begins in ninth grade. Grades nine through twelve provide the official academic program of studies needed to meet the East Brunswick Public Schools graduation requirements, state standards and assessments, and post-secondary admission and/or entry for career requirements. The program of studies also provides important opportunities to explore and develop interests through the extensive elective course options available. It is imperative that you develop a five-year academic plan and review it on a yearly basis.

    Eighth Grade Curricular Program

    The program of studies for eighth grade students consists of a course load of 40 credits. The schedule consists of eight classes, plus a twenty-five minute lunch. Included in these eight classes are required courses in English, math, social studies, science, world language, computer literacy (one semester), and physical education/health (one semester each).

    Most students will have the opportunity to take electives, which will complete their eighth grade year. Some students will be required to enroll in a study skills or a reading/writing support course.
