My child just started at Darnestown in August, and I have nothing but good things to say about it! We purchased our home last year based on all of the good things that were said about the school and all of the kind people we met in the community. Our son has already learned a ton, feels confident and secure, and he has met a bunch of friends whom he loves to be around! We could not ask for more!

2 Children with the best education possible. Tremendous leadership and student body. Equal to any private education. Downside is the portables and aging facilities.

Darnestown is a fabulous school. The population is small and there is much parental and teacher involvement in the nurturing and growth of its students. The children excell academically and have fun while doing it.
