Mr. Scott Strainge

Hello and welcome to the 2023/24 school year! My name is Scott Strainge and this is my second year teaching at Marion High School. Born and raised in Salem, Massachusetts (Home of the Witches!), I am a 30+ year veteran of education, and have served as a teacher, building administrator, and district administrator in the course of my career. Before coming to Marion, I was an Associate Principal in New Hampshire. After retiring from New Hampshire,  my wife, son and I moved to the Myrtle Beach area last summer. I am a graduate of Salem State University (MA in US History) and Rivier University (MA in Educational Leadership) and have served on multiple state and national education panels and committees. I also served as the Director of Educational Programs for the Peabody Essex Museum, in Salem, Massachusetts. As a five-time winner of the Time Warner National Teacher Of The Year Award, I worked on the development of curriculum for the States of Massachusetts and New Hampshire and the nation of Sierra Leone. I also served as a national seminar presenter, traveling to 32 different states over five years to work with high schools and colleges, helping to create high impact professional development around teaching and learning for all grade levels. I am humbled and honored to be a proud member of the Swamp Fox Family and look forward to an amazing year  in the classroom. It will be a privilege to work with this team, your students, and with you to ensure the success of all of my scholars and to help them find their superpowers! 


Family - Married for 32 years, I have 3 Children (22, 25, 28). My oldest daughter is a Veterinary Nurse (Perdue University Graduate), my middle daughter is a High School Teacher (Boston University Graduate - entering Doctoral Program at Harvard in the fall) and my youngest, our son, our inspiration, lives with my wife and me here in South Carolina.

Hobbies and Interests - I love baseball (the Red Sox!), hockey (The Bruins!), reading, making documentary films, music (listening and playing!), traveling, and spending time with my family and two dogs (a black lab and an American Fox Hound). I also have a deep respect and love for the Hawaiian Culture.
