    I honestly believe that Darrington has to be one of the best schools in WA. The teachers care about every single student and do everything they can to help students be successful. The administration is extremely understanding and willing to listen to both parent and teacher concerns

    A grandmother of two and i'm amazed at the fluent fluid move of thoughts that flow onto paper when doing stories or poems. I am very impressed and if they then go back over to edit spelling and punuciation it's even greater. Good job .
