Principal's Message

A Message from our Principal

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the principal of Rainbow Lake Middle School, and to serve our students and their families as they walk this road during this critical time of life.

Our school has a tradition of excellence in student achievement as measured by school report cards issued yearly by the South Carolina Department of Education. This success can be directly attributedThe Hardee Family to the hard work and dedication of our students, faculty and staff, supportive parents, and a caring community.

I have been working and serving in the District 2 family since 2004. I began my career as a Social Studies teacher at Boiling Springs High School 9th grade, and I taught there for 10 years. My journey at Rainbow Lake began in the summer of 2014, when I started serving our school as an Assistant Principal. This will be my 6th year as the Principal at RLMS. I have been married for 21 years and have three amazing boys: Will, Hampton and Silas. My boys are all students in the District 2 system, and my wife is a 3rd grade teacher at Boiling Springs Elementary School. We are very involved at our church, and we love spending time together as a family! I enjoy reading, following the Chicago Cubs and everything associated with Clemson athletics.

Our goal is to make the middle school experience one that each student enjoys, and that also prepares all students for high school and post-graduate success. Please do not hesitate to contact me, or one of my assistant principals, if you have a question or concern. Email is the easiest way to make contact, and I will be glad to call if you need to speak with me. We look forward to serving your family.

Trent Hardee, Principal
