A new high school for Charleston County School District serves the Mt. Pleasant / East Cooper community. At 245,000 SF, the school accommodates 1,500 students and is located at the corner of Mathis Ferry and Whipple Roads, where the previous Wando High School stood.

Spaces in the new school include a gymnasium and auxiliary gymnasium, auditorium, cafeteria, classrooms, science laboratory space, and specialty lab spaces. Curriculum for the new school includes two certification programs housed in the specialty laboratory spaces. The facility also houses a ninth-grade academy.

A high school regulation-sized track and field and two practice fields are located on site. The school will use a baseball field and tennis courts located across Whipple Road and a softball field located on another school site further down Mathis Ferry Road. The school has been named for longtime district educator and former Principal of Wando High School, Lucy Garrett Beckham.

The project completed in September 2020.
