Middle Grades Academics

We’re committed to educating you as a whole, unique person.

Darlington knows that early adolescence is chock full of complex social, emotional, and intellectual needs - and we're here to meet them all. Guided by a challenging, developmentally appropriate program, we're committed to educating you as a whole, unique person. Your 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 you learn in a creative and stimulating environment.
