Dear Upper Dauphin Area School District Community,

I am honored by my recent appointment as the new high school principal and look forward to partnering with you to help our students reach their greatest potential. As the father of three boys ages 14, 13, and 11, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection. My wife and children and I will be relocating to the area, pending completion of our search for a new home.

Before joining UDASD, I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 18 years, including special education/literacy teacher, K-12 assistant principal, district director of special education, corrections education program supervisor, and high school principal. I earned an undergraduate degree in communications from Susquehanna University, a master’s degree in education from Mansfield University, and principal and special education supervisory certificates from Penn State University.

It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors recognizes and values the importance of our mission to serve. I believe in the transformational qualities of faith and education, strong leadership, team problem solving, hard work, loyalty, trust, and a deep commitment to a shared vision in support of the positive growth and development of young people. To that end, we will focus on new technology initiatives, character education, data informed instruction, and curriculum development, while ensuring a supportive school culture. I am confident that our common goals on behalf of students will foster a bright future together.

My first day is scheduled for Monday, September 12th. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best school year yet.

Very truly yours in education,
Matthew Schwenk
High School Principal
