Located in the beautiful Lowcountry of South Carolina, Hanahan Elementary opened its doors in December 1998. Since that time, the school has exemplified quality education steeped in a tradition of excellence. Our mission at Hanahan Elementary is to ignite, in every student, a passion for life-long learning. Through dynamic instruction, creative partnerships, and exceptional support, we foster opportunities for each student to build a legacy of success.

Hanahan Elementary School is home to a diverse population of approximately 1140 students in Pre-K through fourth grade. For our children, the role of the school goes far beyond academics as we strive to educate the whole child, nurturing and celebrating special talents. The energy, enthusiasm, and expertise of the faculty and staff are the backbone of our school’s success. Our teachers combine traditional educational approaches with current research and innovative programs to provide a well-rounded education for our students.

Community engagement continues to be a cornerstone of our school’s success. An outstanding PTA, a highly successful volunteer program, and more than thirty active business partners are a testament to the community’s firm commitment and investment in a quality education for Hanahan children.

Despite increased growth and changes in the composition of our school population, an enduring atmosphere of caring and intimacy continues to thrive within our walls. The citizens of Hanahan strongly and proudly support our school. At Hanahan Elementary, we foster a considerate, empathetic culture in which diversity is embraced and community involvement is encouraged.
