Welcome to Ladson Elementary School
Located on the outskirts of Charleston County School District, Ladson Elementary strives daily to exemplify the district's goal of "Achieving Excellence".  Our growing school population reflects our beautiful expanding community with over 700 students and 39 classrooms.  We are fortunate to be able to educate students age three, with our Head Start programs, through 5th grade. Our mission is to educate, challenge and nurture all students in a safe environment conducive to creating students with high performance expectations.  We value relationships with our families, volunteers and community partners as these relationships create opportunities for our students to become outstanding citizens.  We look forward to serving your family!
