icon A message from Principal Dunsbergen

Welcome to Heritage Elementary!

My name is Matt Dunsbergen, and I am proud to be serving as the first principal of Heritage Elementary School.   Heritage is one of ten elementary schools located in the Ankeny Community School District.  Heritage is home to roughly 600 amazing students!  Our excellent teachers and support staff are really excited to embark on this new journey.  We will work tirelessly to provide incredible instruction that is focused on high academic expectations, while also providing a loving and nurturing environment. Personally, I am a 1997 graduate of Lynnville-Sully High School in Sully, IA.  After graduating from Central College in Pella, IA in 2001, I went back to Lynnville-Sully to begin my teaching career as a 4th grade teacher.  I continued my education by earning my Masters of Science in Educational Administration from Drake University in 2006.  I taught 3rd and 5th grade at Pella Community Schools before becoming an Elementary Principal at Oskaloosa Elementary in 2008 where I served for six years.  In 2011, I earned my Educational Specialist Degree (Ed.S.) from Drake University. In my spare time, I enjoy many sport activities and spending time with my wife, Rochelle, and our four kids;  Ethan, Jordan, Leah, and Micah. Please visit our school!  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
Heritage welcome
