I wish the school would continue to honor the waiver for kids who doesn't live in Brown Dear. My grandson has been attending here for K4 and K5. My daughter received a letter stating he couldn't attend anymore. We had to break the news to him and he cried. We explained that he will have to attend another school. His grandfather and I plan to move to Brown Deer so he can attend the school. We promised he will attend for 2nd grade. We're just disappointed that he can't attend right now.

Brown Deer Elementary is an excellent choice for students, parents, and staff. They are truly community oriented and care about the growth and education of all by being very respectful of every diverse culture and class of their families in a way that does not neglect excellence.

I do not think the school does a good job at preparing the students to live in the 21st Century. The students are not pushed academically. The students too often come from uneducated homes, with little parental support. I have seen this first hand, especially with regards to the level of academic achievement and rigor. I would like to see the school encouraging students to use mobile devices, teaching students about living in a global world and encouraging them to achieve at the level of Wisconsin's more wealthy suburbs. I am not sure if this is possible, however, considering how poor and uneducated many of Brown Deer's residents are.

Our second grader and 5 y/o kindergartener are thriving at Dean Elementary. I have a background in child development and observe the teachers in Brown Deer giving our kids a great start to their academic careers. In addition, the wonderful diversity at Dean is uniquely preparing students for life in the big world out there. Great school, great community!

My Son is in the 3rd grade and really likes the school and works very well with the teachers. I like that the teacher always let you know when things are going on in class room etc.

The teachers are top notch and are very caring We love that all the schools are on one campus which allows for interaction with the Middle school and High school for various events.

Dean Elementary School provides a rich nourishing environment for children to learn and grow. Dean Elementary has some of the finest, caring and best educated teachers in the area. Our child has received unheard of individual attention and is excelling in all areas of academics.

This is our first year at Dean and I have been thrilled with the education and differentiation my children have received. It is a bigger school with a small community feel and I love that wherever we go now in our community, someone is saying hello to our children! My applause to Dean School!
