Following the passage of a successful referendum, the School District of Brown Deer began a campus-wide transformation. Dean Elementary School was vacated and those students relocated to Brown Deer Middle School, beginning a new grade configuration of kindergarten through sixth grade.
The School District consolidated the high school and middle school to accommodate grades seven through twelve. More than 54,000 sq. ft. of renovation work occurred to ensure both the middle and high schools each had their own identity, with common areas to bring them together. Each school features its own gymnasium and cafeteria. The new commons area is shared by all grades and is used for large group functions and after school activities.
The 63,500 sq. ft. addition to Brown Deer High School includes a 33,000 sq. ft. fieldhouse, four-station gymnasium with full wood composition flooring and four practice courts, 160-meter running track, batting cages, climbing wall, art rooms, new locker and toilet rooms, fitness center, seating for over 2,000 spectators and a large commons area outside the gym.
