Operation Royal Pride

The staff and students at Upper Darby High School are proud of an initiative designed to promote positive school culture and recognize student role models in our secondary schools.  Teachers and administrators suggested a recognition program at a Fall 2013 School Improvement Committee Meeting. The group wanted to assure that the negative actions of a small percentage of our students were not overshadowing the positive contributions of the majority. Operation Royal Pride launched in January 2014 at the start of our second semester. We distributed t-shirts to 60 exemplary students, including class officers and others who demonstrated leadership and pride in Upper Darby High School.  The t-shirts were designed by then- junior Michelle Hua and feature the motto: “I Get It…I’m In.  UD Royal Pride.”  We host Operation Royal Pride Recognition Ceremonies once each month, and on those days new honorees will join those already selected in wearing their t-shirts throughout the day.

Many area business partners sponsor Operation Royal Pride.  Many thanks to our community partners for their generous contributions:

  • Marchese Opticians
  • John Hauser Auto Repair
  • Sonshine Christian Academy
  • Drexel Hill Pizza
  • Barbara’s Dance Studio
  • Watts Investments
  • Jano’s Pizza
  • Perkins Restaurant and Bakery
  • Upper Darby Square Club

Additionally, many administrators and faculty members have also sponsored this program with financial contributions.

Students are nominated by their teachers for reflecting pillars of character such as respectfulness, responsibility, and safety. Below are some of the teacher comments that accompanied their nominations of students: 

  • Malachi is a very determined student. He is his own biggest advocate, ensuring that all of his academic affairs are in order as they need to be. Not only does Malachi perform well in his classes, but he is also a major help for his peers. Malachi is always willing to go the extra mile so that he is getting the best education he can.  Miss Brennan

  • Alex exemplifies "Royal Pride" in ever facet of his life. Each and every day he comes prepared to work hard, help others, and participate in class. On top of this, his great sense of humor and incredibly positive attitude is contagious in the classroom. I am proud to have him as my student, and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for him. Keep up the great work, pal!  Mr. Kearney

  • Allison joined DECA this year and is representing UDHS with pride and also with dedication. Even though we have had some struggles with fundraising, that has not stopped her. She looks for supporter and expresses the school spirit with pride. So happy to have er as part of UDHS DECA and the UDHS Family!  Mrs. Haring

  • I'm always impressed with Jeymi. What makes her royal is her perseverance. She came to the United States a short time ago, but her mastery of the English language is truly commendable in such a short time. Beyond that, she is taking AP Spanish now. While many people think that Spanish speakers have an easy time taking an AP Spanish class, this is simply not the case. Jeymi's writing and communicative abilities have improved greatly over the course of the year. She always came for extra help or to check and make sure she was working in the right direction. She was always patient with the non-Hispanic students (and me!) in class as we expressed ourselves. She respectfully corrected any pronunciation errors I made, and she was able to add a deeper cultural knowledge to the topics we explored. She is what it means to be royal!  Miss Brown
