From the Assistant Principal's Desk

Mr. Matthew Fried - Assistant Principal

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and your child as the Assistant Principal of Eastern York Middle School.  My name is Matthew Fried.  I feel extremely fortunate to be serving as assistant principal for Eastern York Middle School.  Since only starting my time with Eastern in last November, I’ve already grown accustomed to the high level of commitment the staff puts towards helping our community’s students through their dedication, professionalism, and the care they take in making even small, daily decisions for our kids.
I hope to model a growth mindset and contribute an infectious positivity to everything we do here at Eastern, from tending to the social climate of the building to ensuring a high level of academic rigor for our students.

I’m excited to continue working with you, our EYMS faculty and staff, Dr. Shoemaker, and the rest of the Eastern community, so we can promote a common mission: to Educate, Prepare, and Motivate each student to Dream, to Learn and to Achieve throughout life.
