Welcome to Mount Gallant Elementary School
Located on 28 acres in beautiful, western Rock Hill, Mount Gallant Elementary was built in 1977. At the time of its construction, the population in Rock HIll was booming. MGES , along with Independence Elementary, was built to ease the growth that the district was experiencing. Mount Gallant Elementary was named for Mount Gallant Road, which is a main artery that connects eastern and western Rock Hill. The school first served students through sixth grade. Building additions were added in 1981 and 1983 to accomodate a student enrollment that peaked over 700. In 1991, sixth graders were moved as a result of the changes the district made to move to the middle school concept. Currently, Mount Gallant Elementary serves a school population close to five hundred in grades kindergarten through five.
