The Twin Falls School District Board of Trustees is pleased to announce Ryan Nesmith as the new principal at Twin Falls High School. The new administrative hire was approved at the board meeting Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021.
Nesmith has worked in education for 12 years. He started his career teaching Science and Spanish for the Kimberly School District in 2009. Nesmith served as vice-principal at Burley High School for the 2013-14 school year before joining the Twin Falls School District. Nesmith became the vice-principal at Twin Falls High School in 2014 where he served until the 2020-21 school year. Starting in October 2020, Nesmith served as interim principal at TFHS after then principal Dan Vogt passed away suddenly.

“As a former graduate of Twin Falls High School, I take great pride in being able to continue the legacy of great leadership, strong academics, and excellent activities. I would be remiss if I did not recognize the great leadership examples I have had in my life, specifically my mentor and previous principal Dan Vogt,” Nesmith said. “There are many great things happening at Twin Falls High School. I believe that at Twin Falls High School we promote a culture of high expectations that guides our students to be successful in their future endeavors after high school. I look forward to continually working hard for every student and sharing in the success of our students, teachers, and community.”
