Welcome to Darlington High School, a Palmetto Gold Award winning school, where Academic Excellence is our goal. The vision of Darlington High School is to promote a safe, caring, and positive learning environment that supports the belief that teachers have the right to teach and students have the right to learn. The academic program of studies at Darlington High School is designed to meet the needs of each student who enter our doors. Our academic offerings include College Prep courses, Early College Credit, Honors courses, and Credit Recovery. Darlington High School's “Early College Honors Magnet Program” allows a student to earn transferable college credits while in high school. Early College Honors students soared to great heights during 2013-2014 by earning 252 transferrable college credits. Taking advantage of the numerous college courses offered on the DHS campus, sophomores, juniors, and seniors were enrolled in college courses such as College Algebra, Freshman Composition, Literature, Psychology, Teacher Cadet, US history, and World History. Darlington High School provides students the opportunity to earn a two-year Associate of Arts degree while still in high school by strengthening its partnership with Florence Darlington Technical College.  The graduating class of 2016 includes the first students who will have taken full advantage of this program and will have earned their Associate’s degree the day they graduate from high school. And if the opportunity to earn an Associate of Arts degree is not enough to make DHS soar above its peers, the tuition assistance it provides students definitely distinguishes the school from any other high school in the Pee Dee.  Darlington High School does its best to secure complete funding for its program so that its students pay nothing for the courses they take on the DHS campus.  DHS pays the cost of both the balance of the tuition not covered by lottery assistance funds and textbooks, thus saving students and their parents THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in college tuition! Additionally, we are extremely excited about our newly renovated science labs. These labs will enable our students to receive state-of-the-art science instruction. 

In light of all these opportunities for academic excellence, Darlington High School is the school for the college-bound students to excel! As a High School that Works, our school strives to meld academic and technical studies while ensuring that every course is challenging and engaging. Students benefit from integrated long and short term projects. Darlington High School is on the cutting edge of outstanding educational practices. Students are given numerous opportunities to pursue their interests and nurture special talents while completing their academic course of study. As a Renaissance School, multiple school-wide incentives for students and faculty that are achieving and demonstrating Falcon PRIDE are provided. Our athletic teams are among the best in the region and compete for state titles yearly. The Falcon band and fine arts programs are growing and involving more students each year. Our JROTC program is expanding and growing future leaders of our Armed Services. Darlington High School is breaking barriers to allow all students to excel. Come join us at DHS as we pursue educational excellence!
