The faculty and staff at Darlington are great! They really put forth every effort to help all students be successful. I like the small class sizes where I can discuss and ask questions as needed. Most faculty are available during office hours and beyond. During this time I can get one on one tutoring, or I can get clarification on a difficult concept. Many of the staff members treat me like family. If I'm sick, I mean really sick, they immediately notice and make every effort to make me feel comfortable. None of us are perfect, especially teenagers. so I like the consequences of work detail versus immediate in school or out of school suspension. It's exciting to get to know such a diverse group of students, many of whom have become good friends. There are many opportunities to get involved, or you can take a break and concentrate on your studies if that's your choice.

Darlington School of Rome, GA, a private boarding and day school, became my home away from home starting in the 7th grade of middle school. Coming from the Rome city public school system, (even with a relatively well-run elementary school), Darlington presented my classmates and I with the academic and extracurricular challenges to engage and accelerate us as students, athletes, artists, and people. With the support of my family and the Darlington community, I attempted to be a well-rounded student, and participated annually in crew, basketball, and track & field, and school plays, concert choirt, an a capella group, a dormitory/resident and freshman liaison, and student government member. My 6 years spent at Darlington, until my graduation, were full of experiencing new cultures, upholding old traditions, and encouraging all students to have faith, school spirit, respect, do service, and ultimately, solely be themselves.
As an African American stuent at darlington I have had an overall great experience but beacsue we are located in small town in georgia there are some but very few students who have made ignorant commenst about race,gender or sexuality and while there are people who are understading and great to talk to about these things they are not the peopel in the administration able to make decsicions and so I have found that overall when it comes to handling certain issues the administration takes little to no action and never makes a firm stading aginst said, rasicm,sexsim or homiphbia. Outside of the administration, Darlington is a wonderful network of families and I have been very happy here.
