Darlington Elementary School (DES) is located on the northeastern fringe of Harford County, situated in a rural community by the Susquehanna River. The school has approximately 130 students from kindergarten through fifth grade and two primary autistic classes. Our staff, parents, and grandparents provide a supportive, challenging, and enjoyable school environment for all. Our highly accomplished staff combined with children who are ready to learn, an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA), and a strong volunteer program result in quality learning opportunities for every child.

DES offers reading intervention, a school-wide enrichment program, and special education services to meet the needs of all children. We realized great gains in mathematics and reading, achieving the highest status in the county on the 2006 Maryland School Assessment. Central to our school’s success is our staff and community’s commitment to teaching and learning. The staff has developed a school improvement plan that emphasizes students’ achievement. Ongoing development assists the staff in reaching these goals. There is a passion for learning and teaching at Darlington. We are proud of our warm and welcoming atmosphere where adults and children truly care about each other and have fun while learning. We live by our school motto “Preserving our heritage and enriching our future.”
