Mr. Allen Boltz II

Hello John Swett Families!

I am excited to be here as your assistant principal.

I had worked as Dean of Attendance at Berkeley High School for the last two years, and worked there as an Academy Lead and Chemistry/Forensic Science teacher for the eight years prior. For my teaching years, I conducted research involving wood burning stoves and air quality at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.

 I have a background in, and offer support for:


Trauma-Informed Teaching

Foster Support

Restorative Discipline

Transgender Support

Mindfulness and Meditation

As I work here at JSHS, I welcome family communication and involvement. If you ever have any questions regarding a school practice or issue, please do not hesitate to reach out.


Thank You!
