Badger High School Names Mrs. Andrea Kaplan Principal

The Lake Geneva-Genoa City Union High School Board has named Mrs. Andrea Kaplan, Principal of Badger High School. She will officially begin her new role on July 1, 2024. 

“I am pleased and excited to announce the hiring of Mrs. Andrea Kaplan as Principal at Badger High School,” said Dr. Peter Wilson, Superintendent. “Mrs. Kaplan's wealth of experience, strong leadership, and unwavering dedication to achieving excellence will elevate the educational experience of our students and contribute to Badger’s continued success,” he continued.

Mrs. Kaplan has over 26 years of experience in education. She currently serves as the Principal at Clarendon Avenue Elementary School in the Mukwonago Area School District. Her educational journey has given her a kindergarten through twelfth-grade perspective, which has provided her with a wealth of knowledge and experiences. She was raised in Wichita, Kansas, where she graduated from Newman University with a Bachelor’s in Secondary Education and Baker University with a Master’s in School Leadership. Prior to earning her Master’s degree, she had the privilege of teaching 13 wonderful years at the high school and elementary levels. She has also served as an Associate Principal at South Milwaukee Middle School and Wauwatosa East High School.


“Being named as the new Principal of Badger High School is an honor. I am excited about the opportunity to lead a school with a dedicated and talented staff, rich traditions of academic and extracurricular excellence, and a wonderfully supportive community,” said Kaplan. “Together, we will continue to engage, educate, and empower the students of Badger High School to reach their fullest potential and leave a legacy of success,” she continued. 

Andrea and her husband Bryan have two sons, Cade and Jacoby. During her free time, Andrea finds joy in family time, CrossFit workouts, and enjoying anything sports-related.

Kaplan succeeds Ms. Jennifer Straus as the Badger High School Principal. Ms. Straus announced her retirement in January following a 15 year career at Badger High School and 33 years in public education.
