What is the best, easiest way to replace a SBS 2003 with a new Windows server 2012 standard including transferring all shares with user permissions, AD, logon scripts, & domain name. Do not care about the exchange server at all.

Is it better to start with a newly created server 2012 and just reenter all AD users/computers, permissions, shares, printers, basically start over fresh?

There is no path from Migration to Windows 2012 from SBS2003 so you will have to create a new Environment as you said. However check the below articles once
