Principal SchwartzFlagler Schools Superintendent Cathy Mittelstadt is proud to announce the next principal of Flagler-Palm Coast High School. Greg Schwartz will take the helm of “Florida’s Proudest Campus.”

Mr. Schwartz went through an unprecedented process in becoming the principal at FPCHS. The final round of interviews was conducted by a group that included faculty, staff, student, and parent representatives.

“I wanted to make sure our major stakeholders at Flagler-Palm Coast High School had a part in determining their next leader,” says Superintendent Mittelstadt. “There are easier and faster ways to do this, but it is important that we fill this vacancy with the right person to move FPCHS forward. Greg is that person.”

On accepting the job, Greg Schwartz says, “I am excited and humbled to join Flagler-Palm Coast High School. It’s a school built on academic excellence, top-tier athletics, extraordinary performing arts, and a multitude of activities and opportunities for our students.” He’s also got immediate plans ahead. “In the upcoming weeks as I transition into my new role, I am eager to meet with faculty, staff, students, and community members. Joining Florida‘s Proudest Campus is a dream come true, GO BULLDOGS!”

Mr. Schwartz graduated from Hanover College in 1996 with a Bachelor’s degree in Education. In 2013 he earned his Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration from Nova Southeastern University. Mr. Schwartz began his education career as a permanent substitute teacher at Atlantic High School. He was then hired to coach at Seabreeze High School. He’s been a teacher, assistant principal, principal intern, and principal in Volusia County. He’s currently the principal of South Daytona Elementary School.

There is a very important connection to FPC though. His sons Grant and Garrick attend Flagler-Palm Coast High School, where they both wrestle. Garrick also plays football for the Bulldogs, so Greg has flipped his share of burgers in the concession stand. Greg and his wife Jennifer also have a daughter, Anna Theresa, an up-and-coming gymnast.
