The Beaver Dam Unified School District is proud to announce that Beaver Dam High School has earned national recognition for the third 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 Silver Medal Award rating for Best High Schools in the country. This year’s report and rankings reviewed more than 600 high schools in the state of Wisconsin and more than 28,000 high
schools across the country. BDHS demonstrated notable growth in the college-readiness category. This growth, combined with improvements in the school’s ACT scores and graduation rate, contributed to Beaver Dam High
School’s ability to move up more than 100 spots in three years in the national rankings of all high schools in the nation by US News & World Report.

Beaver Dam High School is the highest ranked high school in Dodge, Columbia and Jefferson
Counties. Moreover, BDHS outpaced all but one school in the Badger North Conference that BDHS will join at the start of the 2017-18 school year. These rankings are another indicator of the outstanding students, families, and dedicated staff who comprise the Beaver Dam High School learning community as well as the Beaver Dam Unified School District as a whole.

When asked about her feelings regarding the high school earning this distinction for the third year in a row, BDHS Principal Crystal Bates stated: “Our students and staff in the district work extremely hard each and every day. This recognition is a tribute to their work and also our parents who have set a priority of high standards in education.” Superintendent of Schools, Steve Vessey remarked: “Success at the high school level is a culmination of a student’s success from grades kindergarten through 12th grade. We could not be more proud of the students, families, and staff who make-up the Beaver Dam Unified School District.

It’s another great day to learn, work, and live in the Beaver Dam Unified School District.”
