Through a combined effort of faculty, staff, parents, and community, the mission of the Upper Dauphin Area Elementary School is to provide a safe, supportive and respectful environment in which all students are challenged to reach their fullest potential.

The Upper Dauphin Area Elementary School (UDAES) serves students in Kindergarten through 4th Grade who reside within the Upper Dauphin Area School District.  The school population is approximately 399 students (2022-2023).

The UDAES also has a Pre-Kindergarten program which is funded through state grants.  The application for this program is available above under Quick Links.

To register your child as a student at the UDAES, please visit our Registration Page.

I am very excited to serve the Upper Dauphin Area School District family as the Elementary School Principal! I look forward to working with all of you to help your children continue to grow academically, socially and emotionally. I am confident that if we work as a team, we will make your children’s academic experience enjoyable and productive.

I hope to have the opportunity to meet all of you in person in the near future so I may better engage with the very people that have been, and continue to be, the students’ first and most influential teachers.

So, this is an open invitation to meet me! Please feel free to stop by the office and/or call anytime!

And, thank you so very much for sending us such great children! We have the best kids ever!
