Gibraltar is not Germantown, but Superintendent Brett Strousland is happy he decided to come north. A Wisconsin native, his teaching career began on a Native American reservation in New Mexico. He took on several roles at a Wisconsin school district, including elementary school principal, before he and his family moved to Croatia and Cyprus where he was a K-12 principal. Strousland and his family eventually returned to Wisconsin, where he was the superintendent for school districts in Barneveld and Germantown before landing the top spot at Gibraltar. After having the opportunity in the first few months to get to know the teachers, staff, and students, the only negative he could come up with when he was asked was having to go all the way to Green Bay for certain things. He is, however, already working on some big projects for the district in the future.
In addition to its high report card scores, Strousland is proud of the success of the high school’s athletic teams and being able to host one of the county’s Veterans’ Day ceremonies.
