A Darlington student is made up of many things. None of which is average. We help our students develop their interests, passions and pursuits, because we believe every individual has something to contribute. We also believe that only when you're 100% you, are you 100% Darlington. 

Here at Darlington, every student’s path is different. We think that's a good thing. 

Let’s get to know JyJy Johnson, a four-year day student from Rome who plays basketball and serves as a senior staff member for the Jabberwokk yearbook.             
When you think of Darlington, what three words come to mind first?    
Uniforms, purple, Tigers

“Family Guy”

El Zarape

What house are you a member of?     

What are you involved in at Darlington?

If you play sports, who is your favorite coach and why?    
Coach Rush - she has definitely made my last two basketball seasons memorable, fun, and she likes to get down to business.     

If you are involved in fine arts, what is your favorite activity and why?
Yearbook gives you an opportunity to talk to people who you may not associate with regularly, and it's a cool experience to know that you're involved with making memories for yourself and others.     

What's your favorite place on campus and why?    
History hall/art gallery because me and my friends made our forever known hangout called "The Spot." We've created a lot of memories there.     

Who's your favorite teacher and why? 
Mr. Enderle because he's just so eager to teach and always has a smile on his face and a positive attitude. His class is filled with good vibes.     

What’s your favorite thing about Darlington?    
The free time that is given, like free periods. Even though it's a private school, there's a lot of freedom.     

Describe an experience that you've had at Darlington that you couldn't have had anywhere else.     
RUMPUS, especially Lip Sync.

What are some of the ways you've grown since you first came to Darlington?    
I think being more independent with keeping up with work that I've needed to get done and taking advantage of opportunities.
