Wareham High School Principal Scott Palladino will be interviewed along with two other finalists for the position of Plymouth North High School’s principal.

Plymouth Public Schools made the announcement in a notice sent out to parents recently. Palladino, along with Bourne High School’s current Principal Amy Center and Taunton High School’s Associate Headmaster Peter Pacellin, will be interviewed on Jan. 11 in the Plymouth North High School Library.

Palladino was hired as Wareham High School Principal in 2010. He started his career in Wareham in 1994, teaching health at the high school. He has held several administrative roles since then including Site Director for Adult Education and Elementary Summer School Director. He was appointed assistant principal at the high school in 2006 and principal of the Wareham Cooperative Junior Senior High School in 2009.

Palladino holds a master's degree in Administration from Cambridge College, a certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies from Bridgewater State College, and is a Massachusetts certified principal/assistant principal.

BOB, I understand that but he's definitely a shoe in. I knew a month ago they were pursuing him. I'm happy for him, it's a wonderful opportunity but I am sad for Wareham.

It saddens me that two of our highest ranking employees in the WPS are looking for new jobs.  Shaver-Hood didn't get the job and stayed.  That means she's just biding time here, collecting 6 figures until another opportunity comes along.  I hear it's not the the same with Palladino. But still, if he gets the new job, he's gone.


I have an elementary question:  How can the superintendent and the high school principal, both looking for new jobs, be expected to lead a challenged school?  Their heads need to be 100% in the game for our children.

WBTS, you’re way off base here on Mr. Palladino. He’s from Plymouth, this job would be a homecoming for him and I would bet my paycheck that Plymouth is the only place he would leave Wareham for.  He’s a great guy and he’s very invested in our community.

I know that he is a great guy that has done so much.  That is why it is such a big loss. Homecoming or not, he's been here for 24 years.  That level of establishment will certainly leave some big shoes to fill.

He has done a good job. Unfortunately for all the school officials they get blamed when to quote the Oompa Loompas "who is to blame when your kid is a BRAT? The mother and the fa-a-ther dah da da da dah da da"

WBTS I believe the superintendent applied for two other jobs, Stoneham and Franklin. The search to replace her should begin now, and be ready to step in when her contract expires.
