Dartmouth’s Bishop Stang High School appoints new principal


“Bishop Stang High School is pleased to announce Mr. Daniel Dias, with the support of Bishop Da Cunha and Superintendent Dan Roy, will be the next principal of Bishop Stang High School. Dan brings extensive experience and a passion for excellence to this new role. From teaching to counseling, directing student services, and most recently taking on the role of Vice Principal for Academics, Dan has been an integral part of the Bishop Stang family for the last ten years of his service with us. Dan was unanimously recommended as a finalist by the search committee made up of teachers and administrators.

Dan shared, “I am humbled and honored to serve the Bishop Stang High School community as the next principal. I believe so very deeply in the school’s mission and the value of Catholic education in society, and I consider myself fortunate to come to work each day and be surrounded by such kind, dedicated, and gifted professionals who pour into their students each day. I believe there is no place like Bishop Stang High School, and that is a testament to the teachers, faculty, and staff – it truly is a family. It is an honor to serve the community, and I am so grateful to the students and families, faculty, and staff, who make this community special. I am ready and excited to get to work with my colleagues, and believe the future is bright in Spartan Village.”

“I am excited that Dan has accepted this invitation to lead Bishop Stang towards 2030. Dan has shown an unwavering commitment towards bringing the best out of every student and educator that is part of the Bishop Stang community. The academic program in particular will grow in innovative ways under his direction. This is a very exciting time for our school,” shared President
James Benson.

Campus Minister, Amanda Tarantelli, who was part of the hiring committee, shared “[Dan] not only believes in the mission of Bishop Stang High School, but more importantly, he lives the mission inside and outside of the school. He will continue to lead the faculty, staff and students in making sure that Christ is first.” While Dr. William Butler, Chair of the Science Department, added “[his] amazing leadership and dedication to our students and staff will continue to foster a culture of excellence and inclusivity, making sure every student gets the chance to thrive academically.”

In taking the leap to become a school administrator while completing his Masters in Educational Leadership from Boston College, Dan has shown true dedication to our school community. He also holds a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies from the University of New England in Educational Leadership as well as a Masters in Education with a concentration in Psychology and School Counseling. Dan’s thirst for knowledge, dedication to Catholic Education, and support of all students and educators will allow him to continue to be a strong leader for Bishop Stang for many years to come.”-Bishop Stang High School.
