Principal, Darren Schmidt


I am excited to have the opportunity to serve as the principal of South Middle School. My goal each day is to learn and grow professionally and personally. I’m originally from Nebraska and enjoy cheering on the Huskers. In my free time I enjoy many outdoor activities, sports, learning new hobbies, exploring the Black Hills and watching my kids grow up and participating in activities. I look forward to the future and all the great things South Middle School has done and will do!

I have been at South Middle School for 22 years as a teacher and Assistant Principal. Most of my family and myself attended South Junior High, as it was called back in the day. I love this school!! I believe as a staff we can makea difference in every child’s life. In my free time I spend time with my family and support our awesome students in their activities and athletics. I have been very lucky to be a part of the Rebel Nation for so many years.
