He has also worked in public schools as a track coach, Dean of Students, Principal, and, since 2001, as a Superintendent. Pierantozzi joined the Somerville Public Schools as Superintendent in the Summer of 2005. Pierantozzi holds a Master’s degree in Education Administration from Salem State College and is licensed as a Superintendent in Massachusetts.

We applaud Superintendent Pierantozzi for his ten years of outstanding service to our community, to our school department as well as to our students as he presided over his final Somerville High School Graduation ceremony as superintendent this past week in 2015!

We here at the Somerville News Weekly salute you for everything that you do to make Somerville a better place.
