Welcome to Darlington County School District
In the Darlington County School District, we believe in challenging our students and pushing their boundaries through classroom and life experiences, rigorous standards, and innovative teaching. The DCSD is a countywide district serving more than 10,400 students in 23 schools. All schools and the district are fully accredited on the state and national level by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools/AdvancED and the S.C. Department of Education. Our District provides challenging educational experiences for all children. In addition to regular classes, DCSD offers elementary and middle school magnet programs in the arts, sciences, mathematics AND technology. Three high schools offer academic magnet programs, including an International Baccalaureate School, an early college degree program, and a top-ranked STEM school. For students who struggle academically, our district offers interventionists and computer- assisted learning. Darlington County School District is committed to providing a technology-rich education by providing a fully connected educational environment. By 2017, we expect to have a digital device in every student’s hands. Our robotics programs enhance STEM offerings at every level while providing students with new ways to explore science, math, technology and engineering. Our district also offers computer-based programs to evaluate and differentiate instruction, online coursework, and/or online credit-recovery tools for our students.
In the Darlington County School District, we strive to build a world- class school district by focusing on every child, every day.
