Welcome to Mamie P. Whitesides Elementary School

Greetings from Whitesides. This year we have approximately 670 precious children in grades Child Development through grade 5. Our dedicated professional staff is highly qualified and includes seven National Board Certified teachers, guidance counselor and nurse. Our parents provide exceptional support for our school through the PTA, by volunteering in classrooms, by tutoring students, by attending parent conferences, and by supporting home-school relations. This dynamic partnership enables Whitesides to provide a warm and nurturing environment for children to learn and "Reach For The Stars." When 2013 state PASS results were released in November, 2013, Whitesides earned an "Excellent" Absolute rating. Whitesides learned in March, 2014, that we also earned Palmetto Gold Recognition for "Achievement."
