Greetings everyone! My name is Matthew Triolo and I am the Principal here at East Stroudsburg South High School. I began my path in education at East Stroudsburg University in 1999, and graduated in 2004 with a degree in Physical Education and a minor in Health. In the winter of 2005 I became a long-term substitute at Pleasant Valley Middle School, and in the summer of 2005 I was hired as a full-time Health and Physical Education teacher at Pleasant Valley Intermediate School.
While teaching, I coached football and girls basketball, and also completed my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. In 2009 I transferred to Pleasant Valley High School to teach Health and Physical Education, and in 2012 became Pleasant Valley High School’s Dean of Students. After serving as Dean of Students for three years, I joined the Stroudsburg Area School District to become an Assistant Principal at the High School. After serving in this role for a year and a half, I had the opportunity to go back to Pleasant Valley High School to serve as an Assistant Principal. At the beginning of the 2017/2018 school year, I was named the Principal of Pleasant Valley High School and served in that role for the last 4 years. This takes us to present time where I am now the Principal here at East Stroudsburg South High School, and very excited to be here to say the least!
Our values at East Stroudsburg South High School are Community, Ownership, Respect, Excellence (Cav CORE). Everything we do will revolve around these core values. Also, don’t ever forget that hard work breeds success, and we will celebrate all of your accomplishments here. East Stroudsburg South is a great school filled with outstanding students and educators, surrounded by a fantastic community. It is going to be a great year!
