Wisconsin School of Recognition

2009 - 2010, 2010 - 2011, and 2013-2014



Beaver Dam School District Continues Its Award Winning Tradition

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has chosen South Beaver Dam, Lincoln and Jefferson Elementary Schools as Wisconsin Schools of Recognition for their academic achievement in the areas of reading and math.  Wisconsin Schools of Recognition are acknowledged for their exemplary work in breaking the link between poverty and low academic achievement through rigorous programming and attention to individual student needs. Student growth in reading and mathematics at the award winning schools is in the top 10% of schools from similarly sized districts, grade configurations and demographics.

The three schools being honored are the only elementary schools within the Beaver Dam School District eligible for the award. South Beaver Dam’s, Lincoln’s and Jefferson’s successes are reflective of the hard work and dedication by all district staff, students and parents.

The Beaver Dam Unified School District has received twelve (12) Wisconsin School of Recognition honors, two (2) schools have been recognized as Federal Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence, and Beaver Dam High School was recognized as a Wisconsin Advanced Placement Pacesetter School in the State of Wisconsin for excellence in exam scores last year.

Superintendent Steve Vessey; “The Beaver Dam Unified School District continues to be a progressive and rewarding environment in which to grow, learn and work as our students, staff and parents continue to lead the way in student growth and achievement.”


South Beaver Dam, Lincoln and Jefferson Elementary Schools will be recognized at a ceremony at the State Capital on October 13.


Another great day for Beaver Dam Schools!
