SUPERINTENDENT- Dr. Peter Price
Dr. Pete Price is a graduate of Portsmouth (NH) High School, Middlebury College (B.A.), University of Texas at Austin (M.A.), and Texas State University (Ph.D.). He has taught social studies and coached in New Hampshire, Belgium, and Eanes ISD. He worked in Round Rock ISD as an assistant principal and in Austin ISD as a principal and director.
Pete enjoys spending time with his wife (Cynthia) and young adult children (Jordan, Zachary, and Nicole). His family is involved in church youth activities. He likes to exercise, cook, read, and do projects around the house.
Pete is passionate about "Whole Child" education: addressing the unique academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of every student. Providing rigorous core classes (math, science, English, and social studies) as well as enriching elective classes (fine arts, foreign languages, technology, and PE) allows for students to be prepared for college, career, and life. Guided by caring teachers and staff, all students feel valued and thus motivated to excel in whatever endeavor they undertake.
As the superintendent of Marathon ISD, Pete is an advocate of shared leadership, eager to involve students, teachers, staff, parents, community members, and the Board of Trustees in the creation of a vibrant learning community. Destined to be a Mustang (as an assistant principal, principal, and now superintendent), he is honored to serve the Marathon school district!
