About Us


Welcome to Darlington County School District

In the Darlington County School District (DCSD), we believe it is our job to build successful children through positive, rigorous and innovative educational experiences. By moving forward as one cohesive group, we are focused on providing the support and opportunities essential to mold our students into successful academics, professionals, and citizens.

We provide challenging and differentiated instruction each day for more than 10,000 students in 23 schools and Adult Education programs. All schools and the district are fully accredited on the state and national level by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/AdvancED and the S.C. Department of Education. We work to build a culture that is rooted in understanding our students and our communities. We understand the importance of students knowing how to learn, and our processes are built upon that foundation. Our district is helping all students develop the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate’s World Class Skills by embracing the concept of a 21st Century education.

Outside of the classroom, we strive to create and sustain opportunities for our students to play a role in our greater community while utilizing the World Class Skills. Our schools emphasize collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking through successful athletics programs, special interest clubs and partnerships with charities and civic organizations.

Clear and regular communication with the Darlington County Board of Education as well as our communities is at the core of these initiatives. In Darlington County School District we are building a world-class education system by focusing on the needs of every child, every day.
