AdmissionsQuest school reviews function as a legitimate resource for families and students researching independent schools. Posting a review is limited to students and parents/guardians who attended or had a student attend the school within the last three years. Our goal is to have reviews provide feeling and insight into the school experience. Each reviewer is limited to one post at each school.

To insure appropriate tone and content, we require each author to adhere to the following guidelines:

Be:

Honest
Thoughtful
Consider the review questions
Appropriate in tone; criticism is appropriate; bashing and ranting is not
Limit your review to only your experience
Well written with good spelling and punctuation

Avoid:

Personal Attack
Institutional Disparagement
Opinion presented at fact
Any false information
Using or disclosing your personal information

Examples of inappropriate comments include but are not limited to any writing that seems libelous, defamatory, indecent, vulgar or obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive, racially, culturally, or ethnically offensive, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, or abusive, or which may or may appear to impersonate anyone else.

AdmissionsQuest will not post any statement containing a threat of violence against a person or any other remark that would tend to be seen as intimidating or intends to harm someone. AdmissionsQuest maintains final editorial control over all submitted reviews. Reviews must evince appropriate tone and content. All submissions become the property of AdmissionsQuest which reserves the right to determine publication.

History

Founded in 1905 by John Paul and Alice Allgood Cooper, the School was named for Joseph James Darlington, a teacher who had influenced Mr. Cooper. Darlington’s pupils were determined to perpetuate his beliefs in academic excellence, diligent effort, and the development of character dedicated to the service of God and community. Those ideals have remained prominent through many changes in the School, including the addition of a boarding division in 1923 and the establishment of coeducation and elementary divisions in 1973. Darlington has a proven track record in preparing students well for college and its serenely beautiful campus, impressive facilities, and wealth of academic, athletic, and social opportunities make it an attractive choice for parents. But more significant are the friendly spirit of the School and its long history of inspiring students to take full advantage of their God-given gifts and to grow intellectually, spiritually, morally, physically, culturally, and socially.
