Dear Parents, Students, and Community,
Please join me in congratulating Mr. John Beltrante as the new principal of Marple Newtown High School effective July 1, 2018. Mr. Beltrante admirably served in this district for the past twenty-two years.
Mr. Beltrante is an educational leader who brings diverse experience to the position. First, he served as a teacher at the high school, then as disciplinarian until he moved to assistant principal at Paxon Hollow. Following that he became assistant principal at the high school and after a successful tenure of five years, he was selected for the position of principal at Worrall Elementary school.
While at Worrall he received the Keystone Award for Academic Excellence, The Snag in the River Award, and The Title I Distinguished School Award. In 2013, he was part of the Governor’s Award for Marple Newtown High School.
Mr. Beltrante brings not only experience, but a Master’s in Education from Eastern College and a Principal Certification from Immaculata University. He is very active in the community as a coach, mentor, and father of two sons, Bryce and Austin.
Congratulations to Mr. Beltrante
