Welcome to Catawba Ridge

Dee Chris

My 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 I am about to enter my 30th year in public education. I have been a teacher, coach, assistant principal, and Principal at two schools prior to CRHS. My wife, Julie, teaches Biology at Fort Mill High.  Our two daughters are FMHS graduates and our son is a senior at FMHS. 

Opening Day @TheRidge is Monday, August 19th, 2019 for our 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students. We are excited to be the 3rd Fort Mill high school and will continue the Fort Mill School District tradition of excellence set by our two current high schools. While we have much in common with our other high schools, our students and staff have collaborated to create our own identity, legacy, and traditions. We will continue to build upon this foundation in our inaugural year.

#OneCR is a simple way to begin our collective vision for Catawba Ridge High School. #OneCR encompasses our desire to create an inclusive, engaging, and thriving learning community where student development is the center of our mission. Communication is a key component to help us realize our vision and mission. Principal newsletters have been sent regularly via email to enrolled families as of Spring, 2019. We also have a strong presence on social media and encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @CatawbaRidge. I also invite you to follow me on Twitter @dchrisFM. Additionally, you can send me a message
directly at ChristopherD@FortMillSchools.org. I encourage you to reach out anytime.
