Steve Schidrich, Principal

Mr. Schidrich can be reached by email or phone: 843-689-4800.

I have been the proud Principal of Hilton Head Island High School since August of 2019.  I have been with the Beaufort County School District since 1999.  My education career began in 1996 when I became a Social Studies teacher for the New York City Board of Education.  My wife Kim and I moved to Hilton Head in 1999.  I was a Social Studies teacher at HHIHS from 1999 through 2012.  I was the head JV Baseball Coach at HHIHS from 2000 through 2004.  While teaching at Hilton Head High I was the Department Head of Social Studies for 10 years.  While at HHIHS I taught almost every subject including teaching IB Theory of Knowledge for 10 years.  In 2012 I moved to Bluffton Middle School as an Assistant Principal and served in that position for 7 years.  While there I always longed to return to HHIHS.  In August of 2019 I was named by the Beaufort School District Board School Board as Principal of HHIHS.  I am excited to help our students grow academically and socially to prepare them for their post high school endeavors.
