The Beaver Dam Unified School District is proud to announce that Beaver Dam High School has earned national recognition for the second year in a row. Once again, the Beaver Dam High School community has been identified as one of the top high schools in the state of Wisconsin and nation through U .S. News and World Report.

Specifically, Beaver Dam High School has been identified in the top 10% of all high schools in the state of Wisconsin, placing BDHS in the S ilver Medal Award

rating for Best High Schools in the country. This year’s report and rankings reviewed 468 high schools in the state of Wisconsin and more than 28,000 high schools across the country.

BDHS demonstrated notable growth in the college­readiness category. This growth and other documented improvements contributed to Beaver Dam High School’s ability to move up 80 spots in the national rankings of all high schools in the nation for the second year in a row by the US News & World Report.

Beaver Dam High School was the highest ranked high school in the area and in the Wisconsin Little Ten Conference. Moreover, BDHS outpaced 13 schools in the Badger Conference that BDHS will join at the start of the 2017­18 school year. These rankings are another indicator of the outstanding students, families, and dedicated staff who comprise the BDHS learning community as well as the Beaver Dam Unified School District as a whole.

When asked about his feelings regarding the high school earning this distinction for the second year in a row, BDHS Principal Mark DiStefano stated: “I couldn’t be more proud of the work our staff and students do to make this a reality. It is a reflection of the value our students, staff, and parents have for high expectations in their education throughout our district, as well as a reminder that hard work does pay off!”
