Dear Parents and Community,


                 Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year.  I am very excited for the upcoming school year and the many opportunities our students will have for success.  Our school has a tremendous record of success and achievement.  This has been accomplished through the hard work of our students, staff and parents.  The tremendous support of our community plays a large role in the success of our school.

                 We are coming off another very successful year.  Our test scores have improved in several areas.  Our graduation rate remains one of the highest in the State at 97%.  Almost 75% of our student body participates in some form of activity in the school and 68% are on our honor roll.  We continue to lead area schools with AP course offerings along with courses offering college credit.  Senior Projects once again had a tremendous year as the class of 2017 was able to raise over $32,000 for different groups and organizations.  Over the last six years we raised over $150,000 and helped over 100 different organizations.  Brodhead High School also has a long standing tradition with large amounts of student scholarships.  This past year our seniors received over $66,000 in scholarships.

BHS also had another terrific year in sports.  We won conference titles in Boys Cross Country, Girls Track, and Boys Track.  The Football team qualified for the playoffs for the 25th year in a row.  We also had five students qualify for State in Track.  Finally, we won the Rock Valley Conference All Sports Award for the 11th time.

The High School has experienced several years of increased success rates in many areas.  Although we remain very strong academically, we are working on methods to take the next step to a higher level of success.  We have implemented a new intervention system into our schedule to improve student success.  Through the use of some gracious community-based grants, we will open our new STEM lab this fall.  STEM stands for SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING and MATH.  This lab will allow our students to explore and learn these subjects in hands on laboratory.  We continue to develop our character education program in which our Student Council and teachers work together to promote a positive school climate.  The High School will be implementing a program called PBIS this fall in which our staff will be trained in Positive Behavior Intervention Systems.  This is a proactive approach that stresses respect, responsibility, and readiness.  By stressing these expectations to students, we hope they will graduate as better citizens and people.  This past school year our staff and students recognized 850 positive acts in our school by sending out Cardinal cards for positive behavior.  Although education continues to change, we will continue to grow and improve with this ever changing scenery.  Our goal is to move Brodhead High School forward and be one of the best schools in the area.

 *** Please remember that there is a Freshmen Orientation on August 15 at 6:30 p.m. where students will pick up schedules and student handbooks.  Following will be a Co-curricular meeting at 7:30 p.m.  I would like to see all freshmen at the orientation; many things will be covered that they will need to know for the school year.


Yours in education,

Jim Matthys
