Fifteen years ago, a group of dedicated parents, alumni, and administrators started The Winston Churchill High School Educational Foundation, Inc. Working within the Winston Churchill High School cluster, they sought to bridge the financial gap between County funding and the desire of the entire Churchill community to maximize student enrichment. Since then, largely through the contributions of generous donors, the Foundation has provided critical funds to address a unique set of needs for our students and teachers that are not funded by Montgomery County Public Schools.
And now, due mostly to the efforts of teachers, administrators and students, but in some small part to the efforts of the Foundation, Winston Churchill High School has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School, ranked #1 Best High School in Maryland in 2017 by US News and World Report, and ranked #4 Best High School in Maryland by Newsweek in 2015.
The Foundation, today governed by a volunteer board of directors comprised of community members, faculty, and students, continues this focus to include: educational facility enhancements; educational enrichment materials; grants to staff for professional development; and grants to students for activities, clubs and special projects.
The Winston Churchill High School Educational Foundation, Inc. is a community-supported 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization; an independent entity; it is not part of the Montgomery County Public Schools and receives no public funding.
