  • Welcome to Mamie P. Whitesides Elementary School, home of the Wildcats. We are a Charleston County School District (CCSD) neighborhood school, nestled in the heart of Mount Pleasant. The original Mamie P. Whitesides Elementary School was built in 1956 for 350 students in grades 1-7. We have been in our current building since 2010, and for the 2023-2024 school year, we have approximately 800 students in four-year-old Child Development classes through fifth grade.

    The dedicated and caring staff at Whitesides is committed to ensuring that the academic, social, and emotional needs of all of our students are met each and every day. Our parents and community members are a vital part of our learning environment as well, and we could not be successful without them! With a collaborative spirit, we continue to reach for the stars with our students!

    I feel fortunate to get to lead this wonderful Wildcat Family, and I look forward to meeting our new families  and working with all of our Whitesides families this year!

    With Wildcat Pride,

    Michelle Conner
