Mr. Scott Corrente

  •  I am in my twentieth year in Education, twelve in an administrative capacity. My experiences range from large urban districts as a teacher (Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Guilford), and my administrative assignments include Assistant Principal roles at Southern Alamance High School, Northampton (VA) High School and Gates County High School. I have also spent 2 1/2 years as Principal of Gatesville Elementary. I returned to Gates County High School in January 2018 as an Assistant Principal. Gates County High School has the best student body anywhere, and a hard working staff. It is my belief that students rise to expectations that we set for them, and that through building relationships and trust, we can get students to achieve greatness. My wife Candace and I live in Hertford, NC. I am an avid sports fan, I love to read, and I love to go running. If I can be of help in anyway, please feel free to contact the school.

  • I am excited to serve as assistant principal at Gates County High School and to work with our students, parents, staff, and community to make GCHS a wonderful, welcoming place where all can build their foundation for success in future endeavors. I am a 1986 graduate of GCHS so my love for our school runs deep. I began my teaching career in 2001, teaching American History, Civics, Street Law, and Geography in the social studies department. After sixteen years in the classroom, I now join an administrative team dedicated to academic and personal growth for all learners. I believe it is our responsibility to help students set high goals and expectations for themselves and then to help them achieve their aspirations. I believe that each student deserves an adult advocate and my office door is open to all in order to be that supporter. My husband, son, and I live in Ahoskie, NC, but Gates County is my true home. I look forward to meeting and serving the Red Baron community!
