MKE Fellows envisions a healthier and more economically prosperous community that is better positioned to support the fiscal growth of Wisconsin. The primary goal of MKE Fellows is the creation of a strong pipeline of young, African-American male college graduates ready to return to Wisconsin to excel in their careers, build wealth, and become engaged leaders. MKE Fellows seeks to develop groups of young men who are not only well-educated, but who provide servant leadership that will be emulated by others. Please visit the website to learn more about this great asset for young African American males.

ACT Testing:  Any student interested in taking the ACT should register on for the next available test dates:

December 14, 2019 --------  November 8, 2019
February 8, 2020   ---------- January 10, 2020

ACT Test Prep has begun. Starting mid-October we will be conducting individual meetings with you and a parent to discuss your post-high school plans. We encourage you to meet with the College representatives who are visiting our school and to do college visits.  Please contact Mrs. Brenard in the Main Office to set up an appointment.

It is not too early for you to be looking at college and career plans. You can meet with any College representatives who come to Brown Deer Middle-High School or participate in college/career fairs in the community. Review the Curriculum Guide and graduation requirements to plan out the rest of your high school years.

We welcome the 6th and 7th grade to the Middle/High School! Grades 7 and 8 are years that you should use to set yourself up academically for high school. Make sure that you are doing your best in all of your classes, join a club or a team, start to think about what your strengths are and how you can build on your weaknesses. We look forward to working with you as you move through Middle and High School.
