New Superintendent

PLAISTOW – The SAU 55 Board announces the nomination of Dr. Earl F. Metzler, II of Quincy, MA, as the new Superintendent of Schools for SAU 55. The next step in this process will be to negotiate a contract and starting date.

Dr. Metzler received his Doctorate in Education from Walden University and has served for more than 25 years in public education in Massachusetts, serving as a high school principal, middle school principal, assistant principal, teacher and consultant. He is currently the principal of North Quincy High School, a school with a rich history of student achievement, specifically advanced placement programs. Student achievement and recognition for excellence continue to thrive at North Quincy High School under Earl’s leadership. North Quincy High was recently named one of Massachusetts “smartest” high schools by Boston Magazine. Earl is married and has two daughters.

Earl has worked as a consultant for both the Massachusetts Department of Education and Mass Insight. Working with underperforming schools, Earl has helped author school improvement plans and blueprints for improvement in several large urban districts. The schools that Earl worked with have made vast improvements in student achievement and have sustained positive learning climates.

Earl is a dynamic leader and highly respected by his peers. He has made significant improvements in every school that he has worked producing data-driven quantifiable results. Earl is a graduate of the Illinois Superintendents’ Preparation Academy and has recently defended his doctoral study, which study was published earlier this spring.

The board expects Dr. Metzler’s leadership abilities and commitment to success will be an asset to the continued successes of Hampstead and Timberlane endeavors and they look forward to a smooth transition.
