Darlington School: Academics
 

Academics

Learning how to think. Not what to think.

At Darlington School, you'll never be a passive recipient of facts and figures that you dutifully memorize and just as dutifully forget after a quiz or test is turned in. We are designing learning experiences from pre-kindergarten to twelfth grade that will prepare you for a lifetime of thoughtful living and learning.
Creative Thinking

A curriculum of creativity and critical thought.

We know the world demands more from you than simple comprehension. Which is why we'll always tell you to dig deeper, and find new undiscovered solutions. In addition to promoting critical thinking, Darlington classrooms foster creative thinking by providing challenging, skills-based assignments that have more than one right answer. A classroom filled with creative thinking produces fluency, flexibility and originality while offering new ideas in a variety of diverse contexts and through an array of unique perspectives.

The Darlington Journey

As future leaders, our students grapple with challenges we can only imagine.
