Meet the Principals


Principal Josh Fraser

I am the proud Principal of Brooklyn Center Middle and High School STEAM. I’m honored to continue my 13 years of service in the community. I’ve been with Brooklyn Center Community Schools my entire career as a teacher, coach and with various leadership roles. More importantly, I begin my first Principalship in my own community. For this, I am grateful.

It’s very important for me to share why I do this work and what I stand for on a daily basis. My office is a place for anyone in our community to come learn more about our amazing students, staff and programs we offer. I welcome your visit! With that, please take a moment to learn about why I serve BC.
