Mr. Chad Smith

My name is Chad Smith, and I am extremely honored to be the Principal of South Caldwell High School! I live in the community and look forward to serving those I see on a daily basis.

I attended Appalachian State University where I majored in Specific Learning Disabilities. I graduated from ASU in 1999.  My first teaching job was at Jacobs Fork Middle School in Catawba County. After a few years, I moved up to the high school level to teach and coach at Fred T. Foard. During this time, I enrolled at Gardner-Webb University for School Administration. I was a teacher, EC Program Specialist, and Assistant Principal/Athletic Director during my time at FTF.  I also spent a year at West Caldwell High School as an EC Program Specialist.  Furthermore, I was blessed to spend three and half years at Happy Valley School as Principal. 

I'm excited to begin my second year here at South Caldwell High School and look forward to working with you to make SCHS the best it can be!
