Change in Leadership at Da Vinci Connect High

Dear Families and Friends of Da Vinci Connect High,
I am writing to share the news that Marc Pioch and Dr. Kimberly Johnson are leaving Da Vinci Connect, effective June 30, 2022. Marc will be leaving his current position to be the full-time caregiver for his parents. He will remain a part of our family as a consultant to Connect and DVX. Kimberly has served as assistant principal of Connect High since the beginning of this school year, and we thank her for her service. 

I want to reassure our Da Vinci Connect High students, families and staff that there will be a smooth transition of leadership. Michelle Rainey, a founder of Da Vinci Schools, founder of Da Vinci Connect High School, and Executive Director of Da Vinci Connect TK-12, will provide vision, continuity and stability to Connect High.  
We are moving thoughtfully and quickly to hire the next Da Vinci Connect High principal and assistant principal. We will have an update on our progress by June 3. Connect High is well-poised for continued success. 

We are extremely grateful for Marc and Kimberly’s leadership, positive energy, and commitment to supporting students as they navigate the college experience while earning a high school diploma. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time. I can be reached at

With gratitude,

Matthew Wunder, Ed.D.
