Churchill Junior High School
The seventh and eighth grade program not only continues the journey from Hammarskjold Upper Elementary 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.
Process for Course Selection
The process for course selection will start with the Churchill school counselors visiting Hammarskjold to conduct pre-scheduling presentations. The counselors will provide students with a presentation highlighting the course selection process, required courses, the elective program as well as additional pertinent information to assist students in a smooth and successful transition into Churchill Junior High School. A printed copy of all selected courses is provided to the student to be signed by parent/guardian and to be returned back to the School Counseling department by April 21, 2023.
Please keep in mind, course requests do not guarantee placement in a particular course, though every effort will be made to accommodate scheduling requests.
