Darlington County School District Reviews

The Darlington County School District is very communicative when it comes to information. I believe that the school district prepares students for the future, whether they are going into the work force, military, or continuing their education at a university. As a student who has attended all three types of classes, college prep, honors, and duel enrollment, each class has a very rigorous curriculum. As a final point, the school district allows the student to feel comfortable in the environments they provide, which is a very significant element in a school district.

My experience at Darlington High School was an experience I would never forget. When I first entered Darlington High, I felt shy and timid however, the faculty, staff, and students were very welcoming which allowed me to step into my comfort zone and make new friends. Every student has a time when they find difficulties completing their assignments. When I got to this point in the academic school year my teachers and peers were very helpful with demonstrating how to complete my work. They would create games, reviews, and practice quizzes for all the students in the class to better understand the assignment. With all the help that my teaches and peers provided and with my own skills and abilities, I graduated from Darlington High School and now going on to college to further my education.
Darlington County School District overall is a wonderful district. One issue that lies within this district is the appearance of the schools. Many schools have leaking ceilings and broken appliances in the bathrooms and most of the schools in this district are over fifty years old. Other than that, the academics and teachers are great.
