This will be my fourth year at Hilliard Darby High School, and I have had an excellent high school experience! I would say the students at Darby are very involved within the school, because we are very diversified, and there are so many opportunities our school has to offer that everyone can fit into and make their personal mark. The positive environment really makes out for success at our high school. The students, staff, and community of Hilliard always come out to support the sporting events, theater shows, band/orchestra, choir, and all other student involvement. Hilliard is a close-knit community, and this is highly represented at Hilliard Darby High School. The teachers and administration team are very supportive of the students, and personally, whenever I needed someone to talk to... they were always there.

I loved Hilliard Darby! The education is high quality as well as the performance of sports, clubs, and other extracurricular activities. The teachers are very involved with school beyond just the classroom and are very helpful on an individual level. The school offers plenty of educational help for students of all learning types, including an amazing program for children with social and mental disabilities. The social gatherings that we had were exceptional and very well planned and executed. Overall, I really enjoyed my time there. I learned a lot, performed well on tests, quizzes, and in group collaborations and projects. I had an amazing experience as a member of the bands and I absolutely loved attending and watching the sports teams throughout the year. Darby is an amazing, and you should definitely go there, or send your kids there. Go Panthers!
Teachers are awesome! Some of them are serious characters, to the extent that you might think that you're in a sitcom, but that actually makes them better teachers! The district truly cares for students. In sports, we have very competitive teams mostly across the board. Our performing arts are phenomenal as well. I highly recommend attending a choir concert or on stage play. There are countless organizations to get involved in, from student government to a league of legends club. Darby has everything and more!
