A Message from Our Principal

My name is Stewart Durham, and I am honored to be the principal of South Decatur Jr/Sr High School (SDHS). Professionally I have a varied background that did not start off in education but instead in the public sector. After years of management and small business ownership, a chance volunteer opportunity in my son’s third grade class made me realize education was a shift I needed to make. Back to Northern Kentucky University I went, adding to my business degree with a degree in elementary education with a mathematics emphasis, leading to a license in Indiana as a k–6 generalist with 5–9 mathematics and 5–9 science. After years in the classroom I felt a calling to administration where I could help students, their families, and teachers in their respective educational pathways. I now hold a masters degree in educational leadership from Louisiana State University. As a lifelong learner, my educational journey hasn’t stopped, and I hope that inspires your children to do the same.

On a personal side, I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Julie, for almost 30 years now! We have two pretty awesome kids, Dean and Libby, and our dog Maeve. As semi-empty nesters, Julie and I spend our free time taking in everything the Greater Cincinnati area has to offer; food, sporting events, entertainment, and food! We also like to travel to places we’ve never been and places we love to return to, like New Orleans.

You aren’t sending your children to SDHS for me. You have chosen our school for outstanding academics and extracurricular opportunities. Decatur County Community Schools is a small district who refuses to think small. At SDHS we offer numerous dual credit and AP courses, a full pathway in agricultural sciences, a top notch arts program (visual art, choir, and band), and a biomedical sciences program that is second to none! At the varsity level we offer football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, track, baseball, softball, and golf! Add to that our many clubs for students to grow themselves in, and South Decatur Jr/Sr High School is truly a special place for your child.

Thank you for trusting us with your child’s education. We are a group of “student first” educators who are here to prepare them for what is next, whether that is the workforce, a post-secondary education, or enlisting in the armed forces. #WeAreSouth!


Mr. Stewart Durham
