Dear South Strong Students, Parents & Community:

Welcome South Strong Students, Parents and Staff. My name is Mehran Ahmed and I am extremely honored to serve and lead the South Middle School Community. This will be my 14th year working in education, and have the opportunity to continue to serve the Aurora community. Over time I have developed the following core values; Respect, Trust, Service, and Humility. I have always believed all students should have equal access to engaging learning opportunities. I have a passion for students and a conviction to support all people grow in their respective roles. 

Our focus at South Middle School is to provide stability in students education, and support our South Strong values by creating a school climate and culture where all students and staff feel safe and respected, create a collaborative culture and structures that support staff implementation of curriculum and engaging learning opportunities for students, and utilizing data to drive all decision making and having a responsive system that ensures all students are successful. 

I look forward to meeting everyone and connecting with our students this upcoming school year. I am available by phone at 303-364-7623 or email


Mehran Ahmed, Principal
