Paul Vonfischer - Principal
Shelly Jensen - Vice Principal
On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Brookings High School. Our school has an outstanding reputation and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful program. Brookings High School is filled with enthusiastic students, supportive parents/guardians, and a dedicated professional staff committed to providing the students with a quality education. Educational opportunities at BHS include many face to face courses, hybrid courses, and online courses available through the South Dakota Virtual School. In addition, BHS has a number of clubs and activities offered to enhance a student’s high school experience. Please contact Principal von Fischer or myself if you have any questions.
My name is Shelly Jensen and it is an honor and privilege to serve as assistant principal of Brookings High School, my Alma mater. I received my B.S. degree from SDSU in 1996. From there, I went on to obtain my Master’s Degree and Ed Specialist degree in Leadership Education Administration. I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Leadership Education Administration and hope to complete that degree in one year.
I spent my first 13 years in education as a speech therapist and early childhood special education teacher. My first principal experience was in Hendricks, MN as a K-6 principal. The following year, I developed the district’s new Middle School and High School and was Hendricks’ K-12 principal for one year. In 2012, I accepted the Assistant Principal position at BHS and have worked in the Brookings School District since then.
