Darlington School

1014 Cave Spring Road SW
Rome, Georgia, USA Show Phone Number   

What is it about this place? Imagine a school where 5-year-olds star in musicals and 8-year-olds master PowerPoint; where 11-year-olds are members of an orchestra and 13-year-olds compete on the lacrosse field; where 15-year-olds build robots and 17-year-olds lead the Honor Council. At Darlington School, they do this and much more. Our students are nurtured in small classes. They learn more than reading, writing and arithmetic; they develop self-confidence and a rare intellectual curiosity that takes them through Middle and Upper School. At Darlington, students live our motto: Wisdom more than Knowledge; Service beyond Self; Honor above Everything. Darlington is...

Welcome to Dublin School. We hope that the pictures, stories, and articles on this site give you a front porch view of our unique little school.

Dunn School

P.O. Box 98
Los Olivos, California, USA Show Phone Number   

The essence of Dunn School is found in this simple statement: Dunn cherishes and cultivates individual talents in a safe, nurturing and challenging environment. I was struck by this concept when I first became acquainted with Dunn. For me, the most important two words are "individual talents." In the Dunn community, we understand that every single student arrives with certain talents and gifts. These gifts may be immediately apparent in the classroom or on the athletic field, or they may be as yet undiscovered potential, waiting to be realized in an art or music room, on top of a mountain,...

Eagle Hill School

P.O. Box 116
Hardwick, Massachusetts, USA Show Phone Number   

Over the last forty years Eagle Hill School has steadfastly challenged and redefined the conventional wisdom regarding the education of students with learning (dis)abilities. Today, the genius of the Eagle Hill philosophy remains its simplicity. As you have probably inferred from my use of parentheses around the prefix “dis,” our philosophy is grounded in the belief that our students are not disabled at all. To understand the difficulties that they have faced in other academic settings requires a careful look at the unfortunate and limiting ways in which most schools view their students. At Eagle Hill School, we understand that...
