University High School Staff

Principal: David Gardner

David Gardner graduated from Wayne State University and has been an educator since 2006. He has been an educator at Ferndale Public Schools, specifically at University High School, since then.  He has worked tirelessly as a classroom teacher, counselor, assistant principal, and finally principal to ensure the success of every student at UHS.  

"I am excited and prepared to continue working on behalf of the students, families, and staff of UHS and Ferndale Public Schools. I recognize the strong work ethic and innovative practices of the UHS team and pledge to support them as we continue our journey of equity through inclusive and relevant curriculum and instruction and meaningful socio-emotional practices. UHS is a special place and I consider myself fortunate to be given the opportunity to continue the growth of its student-centered culture,"
