Dear Parents and Community,

                Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 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 ACT test scores are at or above the state average and continue to climb with several students scoring in the upper 20s.   Our graduation rate remains one of the highest in the State at 98.6%.  Almost 75% of our student body participates in some form of activity in the school and 62% 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 2018 was able to raise over $35,000 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 $1.3 million in scholarships!

BHS has a long successful tradition in sports. We have won the Rock Valley Conference All Sports Award for success in our athletic programs 11 of the past 13 years. This year we awarded over 50 athletes with all conference awards and had 3 athletes sign national letters of intent to play college athletics.   

Brodhead High School is proud to announce that starting in the 2018 – 2019 school year we will be partnering with Blackhawk Technical College to offer our students certification and diplomas in the following areas: Nursing, Machine Tool, and Welding. This means our students will have the opportunity to enroll and start working towards a degree through dual credit options starting their junior year. The goal is to have students graduate from BHS and Blackhawk Tech at the end of their senior year. We have also partnered with Kuhn North America and Stoughton Trailers, our two largest local employers, to offer jobs to students completing these programs. Local donations in the excess of $50,000 have contributed to this program to better our community.

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 have opened our new STEM lab.  STEM stands for SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING and MATH.  This lab has allowed our students to explore and learn these subjects in a hands-on laboratory. 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, pride, and leadership.  This past school year our staff and students recognized 670 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.

*** There is a Freshmen Orientation on Wednesday, August 29 at 5:00 p.m. where students will pick up schedules and student handbooks.  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
