Wando High School is a public high school within the Charleston County School District, located in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, United States. The high school serves students living in Mount Pleasant and other suburban portions of eastern Charleston County. Established in 1973, the school was re-built in 2004 to accommodate the town's rapid growth during the 1990s. Wando is the largest high school in the state of South Carolina based upon an enrollment of around 3,700 students in the 2013-2014 school year.HistoryWando High School takes its name from the nearby Wando River, a major tributary of the Cooper River that divides Charleston and Mount Pleasant. The school opened in 1973 shortly after desegregation was completed in Charleston County.In 2004, the new facility at 1000 Warrior Way in Mount Pleasant opened its doors. In 2009, principal Lucy Beckham was named the 2010 MetLife/National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) National Secondary Principal of the Year. This is classified as the highest honor for a secondary school principal in the nation. In 2014, Beckham stepped down from her role as principal, being replaced by interim principal Sherry Eppelscheimer.After the new campus was completed, the old campus became a temporary home for other local schools while they rebuilt their primary campuses. First it became the home to Laing Middle School, and in 2010 Charleston County leased part of the property out to Buist Academy. When Buist completed its new downtown campus, it left and its place on the old campus was taken by Jennie Moore Elementary. This arrangement continued until the 2014-2015 school year, for which both Laing and Jennie Moore moved into their new facilities a few miles away. Demolition of the old campus was completed in the fall of 2016. Today, the only remnant of the old campus is the football stadium, which is still used by the Wando football team.
