Why Choose Darlington's Pre-K to 8 Program?

At Darlington, our motto – Wisdom more than Knowledge, Service beyond Self, Honor above Everything – is the cornerstone of all that we do. Our commitment to this philosophy is evident in our classrooms, hallways, athletic fields, and programs as we seek to develop our students’ vision of the world by fostering understanding of both responsibility and accountability through the sometimes difficult early years of adolescence.

Guided by a challenging, developmentally appropriate program, Darlington is committed to educating the whole child. Our curriculum addresses the varying social, emotional, and intellectual needs of early adolescence. Knowledge and skills are developed through opportunities and experiences that foster critical thinking, curiosity, creativity, and problem solving. Learning specialists, teachers, coaches, and administrators work collaboratively to understand how each student learns and to meet those unique needs in a creative and stimulating environment that addresses both strengths and weaknesses using the model articulated by the Schools Attuned Program.

"This is Why" - What I Saw in 6th Grade

   

Brent Bell, Head of School
Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017

Two weeks ago I fulfilled an obligation made in support of the Darlington’s Purple Tie Affair, our Parents’ Council auction and party that occurs each August. One of our students, sixth-grader Kayo Lufadeju, would be “Head of School for a day.” In a slight twist, I also spent the day before with Kayo as a sixth-grader. I’m not sure exactly what Kayo thought of being “Head of School,” but I had a great day as a sixth-grader.

Each student in our Pre-K to 8 program has a homeroom teacher or faculty advisor who is responsible for individual program evaluation and academic counseling. The homeroom teacher/advisor acts as the point person for both parents and students. This provides an opportunity for group discussions during which students are able to view themselves as part of the larger group as well as individuals who have important contributions to make.

Throughout Darlington, our programs integrate opportunities for student success. Whole school assemblies, academics, athletics, and fine arts are an essential part of our commitment to teach the whole child. We strive to help students understand the importance and value of hard work and citizenship.

Whether students are preparing for the wax museum, celebrating the 100th day of school, running through the woods simulating Richard Connell’s Most Dangerous Game, proudly displaying their science fair projects, scoring on the athletic field, gathering at the flagpole, or just hanging out talking, Darlington School has a culture and a feel all its own. It is a place where students are encouraged to maximize their potential and transform that potential into success.
