Hello SMS Alumni!

Our SMS community includes over 835 alumni who live and work around the world, from as far as Japan to right here in Stratton.
In our ranks are artists, entrepreneurs, physicians, professors, business leaders, writers, professional athletes, public servants, coaches, and scientists—bound together by the unique SMS Experience.
Hello SMS Alums!
As alumni, you all share a very unique high school experience. As Darren Bloch ‘92 puts it, “My greatest lesson from SMS is an understanding of just how hard you need to work to succeed at a high level, in ANY endeavor.” 

We encourage you to stay in touch with this special place and get involved! Come back for our annual Alumni Weekend in the fall or simply come visit and enjoy the incredible facilities your campus has to offer. Work out in the gym, play a set on the paddle court, play lacrosse on the field, train on the indoor turf, peruse the art gallery in the Patti Kaltsas Education, Arts & Student Center, and train with the team. Know that SMS will always be your home.
We are always gathering Class Notes for our annual Starting Gate magazine. Have you recently gotten married or engaged? Were you promoted at work? Did you move? Did you start a new business? Do you have a baby? Have you traveled? Have you participated in an athletic competition? Your classmates want to know what you’re up to! Let us know what you are up to by using our Update Your Information Form. 

We look forward to seeing many of you during the course of the year. We hope you will visit us both online and in-person when time allows!

SMS taught me to look beyond the scoreboard and focus on what I can control: a positive mindset, a desire to learn, and the importance of balancing hard work with joy in what I do.

Sarah Piampiano ’98

I think one of the biggest lessons I learned was in perseverance. You learned quickly that some training days or races would be better than others, and you just had to stay goal oriented and determined and driving towards success. It was a great skill to learn at a young age.
