Welcome to Catawba Ridge

Dee ChrisMy name is Dee Christopher and I have the privilege of serving as the first principal at Catawba Ridge. I have spent the last 12 years as principal at Fort Mill High School and in my 29th year in public education. I have been a teacher, coach, assistant principal, and Principal at two schools prior to CRHS. My wife, Julie, is in her first year teaching Biology at Fort Mill High.  Our two daughters are FMHS graduates and our son is a junior at FMHS. 

CRHS will open in August, 2019 to 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students in a brand new facility off the Fort Mill Bypass. We are excited to be the 3rd Fort Mill high school and will live up to the tradition of excellence at our two older, sister schools. There will be many similarities to our sister schools, but we’re also ready to develop our own name, legacy, and traditions.  Student and parent meetings and advisory groups will be developed in the spring semester. I will also visit feeder schools (elementary/middle) during school days and during school events to meet the families we will serve. 

#OneCR is a simple way to begin our collective vision for Catawba Ridge High School. #OneCR encompasses our desire to create an inclusive, engaging, thriving learning community where student development is at the center of our mission. Look out for communication via e-mail in the coming months to find out how you can get involved and support Catawba Ridge High School.  Follow us on Twitter @CatawbaRidge and @dchrisfm
