To create community, every day begins with Flagpole, a gathering time for students in grades 3 to 8 to share announcements, athletic team updates, and celebrate birthdays, culminating in the Pledge of Allegiance and recitation of Darlington’s Mission Statement. The 8-day rotating schedule includes longer periods with classes that meet every other day to help foster passions and pursuits. You’ll have breaks in the day that allow plenty of time for reflection and social time with friends.
In addition to core classes, each 8-day rotation includes an assembly offering Character Education. You’ll also have time to experiment with music, visual, or performing arts and build your athletic skills in the middle grades athletic program.
Get support being your best self – our Advisory program gives you a faculty-led, trusted peer group to help navigate middle school life; and the Learning Center supports students with diagnosed learning differences by providing specialists who work directly with you on achieving academic success.
