Our daughter just completed her first year at Darlington. Her 3rd Grade experience was amazing! She loved the small class sizes and individual attention she received. She made many memories with special seasonal activities, educational outings, and cultural experiences. It's clearly apparent how deeply the faculty and staff care for the students. Darlington also offers The Learning Center, which is an invaluable resource when students need a little extra help.

Even with a less than ideal Spring semester, due to the pandemic, Darlington continued to provide a superb education. The assignments were meaningful and the daily live digital interactions between students and teachers helped everyone stay connected. There were even opportunities to continue service, wellness, literacy, and leadership projects from home during distance learning. We highly recommend Darlington School to anyone seeking a unique experience and the highest standards for their child's education.

My son entered Darlington this past year as an 8th grade student. He thrived in the warm, caring, encouraging environment they created for him. He was welcomed by all students and teachers and made to feel like he had always been a part of the family. I appreciate that he was challenged in the classroom, and that he tried new things like participating in drama and cross country. His teachers and coaches helped him realized his full potential. Their emphasis on developing the whole child is well demonstrated through the offerings they have for students to participate in. I am looking forward to his high school years!
My son just completed his freshman year at Darlington and it went above and beyond our expectations! He was new to the school and transitioned very well due to how Darlington orients the students (and parents). He excelled in his academics and the relationships he built with teachers and other students were invaluable. You cannot put a price tag on all the intangible assets that Darlington has to offer. We are blessed to have the opportunity for him to attend this school.
