Hello Brandywine Heights High School Students and Families,


The beginning of a new school year is upon us, and I cannot stress enough what an exciting time of year it is!  The beginning of school brings about such an amazing energy, and the return of our students, staff, and families from a well-deserved break helps breathe new life into our phenomenal school.  Preparing for school opening for the year always makes time fly a little faster, and the bustle of our students getting back into the swing of their classes, seeing our athletic teams begin their competitions, our music programs begin their initial rehearsals, our wide variety of clubs kick off their activities, and watching the days get a little shorter all help serve as our springboard into an exciting Fall here at Brandywine Heights High School.


As I enter my second year serving our district and families as the proud principal of our great high school, I cannot help but take a quick moment to again thank our students for all of their hard work, and for the difference they make not only in one another’s lives, but also in the lives of our staff and our community.  I am so proud of our students and the myriad of skills, talents, and experiences that they bring to our building. High School is a phenomenal time in the life of a student, and one that we will strive day in and day out to make the best possible experience that we can, and to prepare our students for whatever may come next in their lives.  It is my paramount focus to ensure an enriching, safe, and welcoming learning environment for the students here, and one that the students can be proud to be a part of every single day.  Mr. Barnhart and I are very excited for the upcoming school year, and for the chance to work with our students.


To our returning students and upperclassmen, I want to make sure you utilize the resources available through our school faculty and counseling department to help you as you are here in school every day, but also as a resource as you begin preparation for what may lie beyond our walls here after graduation. Please make sure to take care of yourselves both physically and emotionally, and be sure to reach out if you are in need of any assistance at all.  The changing seasons, increased demands of high school, and added facets of work, studies, relationships, activities and future planning can all add additional challenges to any student’s year, and it is important you know where to go, and that you are supported.


More than anything, I only ask that you approach each day with respect and integrity.  Every day is an opportunity to do great things as you prepare for your future, and I think that you are more than capable to make a tremendous impact on the world.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 610.682.5102 or at  Also please feel free to follow our building facebook page at, or the Twitter handles @BHHSprincipal and mdziunycz_bhasd for information, pictures, and updates.  Thank you so much and have a phenomenal start to the year!
