Mr. Joseph A. Vandenberg

Dear Parents and Families of Bunker Hill Middle School:

As the new principal of Bunker Hill Middle School, I am honored and proud to be a member of our BHMS community.  My family and I are long-time residents of Washington Township and I have had the privilege to serve as a teacher and administrator here in our school district and in private education for more than thirty-five years.  I care deeply about education and look forward to working together with you, the parents and community members, and our dedicated faculty & staff to provide the highest quality education possible, to promote enriching opportunities, to ensure a safe, supportive, and engaging learning environment, and in so doing, to make a meaningful difference for your sons & daughters.

During the past month, I have had the opportunity to meet many of your sons and daughters, visit classrooms, participate in meetings, collaborate with our dedicated staff, and meet several members of our P.T.O.  As you already know, Bunker Hill Middle School is a deeply caring and committed environment in which your children can learn & grow.

As I reflect on my first month at BHMS, I am very appreciative of the support and effort of Mr. Cleve Bryan, who, as Interim Principal along with assistant principals, Mr. Beyer and Mr. Selby, worked tirelessly to establish the solid foundation for the 2015-16 school year.  I am also pleased to announce that our new Assistant Principal, Mr. George Passante, has recently assumed his position as our new assistant principal.  As together we begin our professional partnership, be assured of my deepest commitment to your children.

Best wishes for a successful 2015-2016 school year.


Joseph A. Vandenberg, Principal
