Mr. Aaron Sborz, Principal
Hello Blazer Learning Community,
I am excited to be starting my fourth year as Principal of Daniel Boone Area High School. Since coming to the Blazer community in 2015, I have had opportunities to meet many of our stakeholders and strengthen the Blazer Learning Community here at DBAHS. We have dedicated, passionate, creative, and empathetic people within our community that I feel honored to work with and serve.
A student’s high school career is an exciting and daunting time for parents. In order to assist our families during this journey. We have increased our real-time information in the Infinite Campus parent portal. The expansion of the parent portal has truly enabled it to be a one-stop shop for information. Our conversion to Blackboard will enable grading to be more up-to-date and accurate, as the interface with Infinite Campus is more streamlined. At DBAHS, we will continue to build a supportive and collaborative environment for our students and parents. Parents, I challenge you to stay active in your student’s school life, even in the face of their attempts to assert their independence from you as they grow and mature into responsible young adults. It is only by staying engaged as educational partners that we can create an active and engaging school community that promotes a safe and positive learning environment.
As we look ahead to 2022-2023, I am excited to welcome all of our Blazers to the high school and wish everyone a great year. Go Blazers! I feel fortunate to have this opportunity to serve the Blazer Learning Community and look forward to maximizing each student’s potential.
Thank you and Go Blazers!
Mr. Jeffrey Berger, Assistant Principal
Greetings Blazer Learning Community,
The 2022-2023 school year marks the beginning of my 16th year in public education. This will be my first year serving in the Daniel Boone Area School District as an Assistant Principal at Daniel Boone Area High School. I look forward to building relationships with students, families, the community, staff, and all stakeholders focused on learning in the DBASD.
I promote positive relationship building, engagement, and belonging to all involved in reaching the goal. That goal is student growth, achievement, and success. My previous roles in the Reading School District have given me a unique set of skills to lead students on the path to success.
Previously, I was a 7th and 8th-grade social studies teacher and the Dean of Students at Reading High School. As the Dean of Students, I assisted in creating a safe and positive learning environment at the high school and helping students manage behavior, attendance, graduation requirements, and feel a sense of belonging in their learning community. I also assisted students who were behind on their required credits to graduate close that gap, and understand the importance of education, graduation, and success.
I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Kutztown University and a Master of Science Degree in Educational Leadership from Wilkes University. However, I am a lifelong learner. Whether it is educational training or a “how-to” video on YouTube, I never stop learning and building my skill set.
My wife and I live in Berks County. She is a 3rd-grade teacher. We spend a lot of our time doing projects around the house and watching baseball. We are both big Philadelphia Phillies fans. I enjoy spending my free time outdoors, doing construction projects, or working on cars.
I strive to be an Assistant Principal that is approachable for everyone. I’m here to assist on the journey to success, as well as celebrate achievements. High school should be a memorable time filled with a lot of joy. There are many extracurricular activities for students, as well as planning for the future, let's work together to make the high school years the best years. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me during the school year. I will be glad to assist in any way I can.

Mr. Joseph Scoboria, Assistant Principal
Welcome back, Daniel Boone Area Community, as we all embark through the 2022-2023 academic school year together here at Daniel Boone Area High School! I am so proud to work for a school district that values educational achievement, historical community traditions, and extracurricular activities that all help shape the DBASD.
I encourage students to get involved at our high school and in the community to develop relationships and serve others. DBAHS offers outstanding student clubs, organizations, and programs available to make connections, give back to our community, and have fun!
My years teaching and coaching in the Reading School District, which preceded my first year as Assistant Principal at DBAHS, have provided me with unique experiences and learning. I hope to continue to be an administrator in which staff, students, and families feel comfortable approaching, and sharing with me their questions, challenges, and victories.
Attending school and engaging in learning are critical to success at DBAHS. I strongly support our students’ efforts in making each day count. Last school year was a challenge, and we don’t know what this school year will bring. However, we can all work together as one learning community to be kind, respectful, and understanding of each other’s needs during this time.
I am a lifelong learner, and understand the importance of continuing growth and comprehending the complex and ever-changing world of education. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education at Kutztown University with a background in Special Education and History. As I began teaching and coaching at Reading SD, I attended graduate school in the evenings at Alvernia University and earned my Master of Education focused on Teaching English as a Second Language. I then began taking online courses through Immaculata University to become certified as a school administrator. Currently, I am a doctoral student at the University of Florida, where I am studying Educational Leadership and Administration.
High-quality education is personal to me, and I will strive each day to make sure your child receives that at our high school. My grandparents immigrated to the United States from Italy without education, money, employment, or the ability to speak English. They worked hard and were able to provide for their family. They instilled this drive and work ethic in my mother, who was the first in our family to earn her education, and eventually her Ph.D. That is the American Dream. My mother taught at the Daniel Boone Area School District for more than 30 years before retiring and loved every day of her experience here.
I am extremely excited to begin this school year with our Daniel Boone community: students, teachers, staff, parents, guardians, and community members! Please feel free to reach out to me throughout the school year if I can be of any help.
Mr. Joseph Scoboria
Assistant Principal, Grades 9 & 11
