Darlington School Reviews
I began attending Darlington School as a boarding student my sophomore year. It was a big transition, moving to a new school and city where I hardly knew anyone along with not having my parents around. Not having that constant parental hover, while refreshing, was a big struggle for me and was something that took time to adapt to. It was the common things that became a challenge like keeping up with school work, prioritizing, and even things like making sure I got a balanced breakfast. Darlington has helped me mature and become more independent while also learning how to be part of something bigger than myself. The school does offer opportunities for the students to bond but there remains a separation between day and boarding students. Here, I have been prepared for college and the rest of my future while also meeting life long friends and role models. Darlington is not only a school but a community, and that I am so grateful for.
Darlington School is a world-class institution with a lot of qualities many people look for when they are considering independent schooling. Darlington has a small atmosphere that allows for your child to excel in and out of the classroom, which will prepare them for a multitude of paths after high school. Another thing that is currently present is a lot of growth from the Arts and Athletics programs. These programs have been getting national recognition, which helps the school maintain it's reputation.
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.
