At Tuesday’s board meeting, Berkeley County School District board members named Christopher R. Buchholz as the new principal of Philip Simmons High.

Mr. Buchholz has served as Assistant Principal for Athletics at Goose Creek High since 2017.

Mr. Buchholz came to Berkeley High as a teacher in 2006 after leaving a position as teacher and assistant athletic director at Stonewall Middle School in Manassas, Va. Among his roles at Berkeley High, he served as a school testing coordinator, a lead administrator representative for School Improvement Council, and coached football and basketball for five seasons.

He later served as Assistant Principal for Instruction at Cane Bay High before moving on to Goose Creek High.
