  • Welcome to Mamie P. Whitesides Elementary School, home of the Wildcats. We are a 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 2021-22 school year, we have 750 students in four-year-old Child Development classes through fifth grade.

    The staff at Whitesides is dedicated 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. We could not be successful without them! With a collaborative spirit, we continue to reach for the stars with our students!

    We welcome all of our families and Wildcats to Whitesides!

    With Wildcat Pride,

    Cathie Middleton
