On Monday, November 20, 2017, the school hosted a final gathering of teachers, staff, and students before demolition is expected to begin on Monday, November 27th. The first Home Depot for Mount Pleasant will take over the corner of Highway 17 North and Six Mile Road.

Laing - currently a STEM middle school in a brand new building just off of Hamlin Road - has a more than 150-year history in Mount Pleasant, beginning as the first school where former slaves could gain education and vocational skills and continued to serve the African American community East of the Cooper through segregation, ending in the 1960s with the integration of Laing at the Highway 17 North location.
