Churchill first opened for classes in 1966, funded by a 1960 school district bond that also established Roosevelt High School and the Blossom Athletic Center.[3][4]

The school mascot is the Charger while the British Union Flag (also referred to as the Union Jack) and lion are used as additional symbols. The school was referenced in the 1996 movie Lone Star.

In 2017, the school was rated "Met Standard" by the Texas Education Agency, with a 3-Star Distinction for Academic Achievements in ELA/Reading, Science, and Social Studies.[5] Churchill has been twice named a National Blue Ribbon School, in 1982-83 and again in 1999-2000.[6] In 2012, Churchill was ranked 8th on Children at Risk's Top 10 High Schools in Greater San Antonio.
