Hanahan has three public schools for school aged children. Hanahan Elementary and Hanahan Middle School were both awarded National Blue Ribbon Award status by the U.S. Department of Education in 2014. This is an exceptional honor and speaks to the outstanding quality of our school staff and the engagement of the community in raising bright children capable of competing in tomorrow's workforce. Out of 5 schools in the entire state, Hanahan has two of them. With its close proximity to both I-26 and I-526, Hanahan is an ideal location for those commuting to work and families.
