Dr. Joseph Yanek- Principal


Hello, I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Mr. Yanek, Principal of the Nazareth Area Intermediate School.  I have been in education for 33 years, principal for the last 23 years.  My educational experiences include urban, suburban, and rural settings; and all three levels of education, elementary, middle and high school.   These varied experiences have greatly aided my understanding and assisted me in handling all the issues that come with educating children in the 21st Century. 

As you navigate our web-site, we are confident that all your questions about our great school will be answered. If for some reason you cannot find the information you are seeking, please feel free to contact the school at 484-292-1111 so your questions can be answered. 

I, as well as the Intermediate’s staff, look forward to working with the Nazareth Community to make our school the best place to learn and work. We understand with change, growing pains will occur. It is our goal to reflect on the changes, understand the impact it has on our constituents, and if possible, modify actions for improvement. We are proud of what our students are accomplishing, and we hope you get a chance to participate in the “Intermediate Experience.”

Mrs. Kacy Clowser-Assistant Principal


     Hello! My name is Mrs. Clowser and I am proud to be the Assistant Principal at Nazareth Intermediate School. I began my teaching career as a special education teacher and then came to Nazareth where I was on the 6th grade math and science team at NAIS! I spent one year as the Eagle Block Coordinator at Nazareth Area High School before returning to the Intermediate School as the Assistant Principal. I am passionate about student-centered learning, restorative practices, technology in education and I am so excited about our 1:1 ipad initiative this year! 


     We are so proud of the continuous efforts of our students and staff members and we are appreciative for our parent and community support. Because of our students, staff, parents and community members, students at NAIS have so much fun. We have over 20 clubs, numerous themed activities and many community-night events! Please find time to join us and get involved with the Intermediate School! 

I wish you an #aNAISing school year!
