School Notes

  • The SMS faculty brings years of practical and academic experience into the classroom. More than 50 percent of our teaching staff holds a master`s degree. Individually, they are world-class athletes, historians, physicists, linguists, artists, farmers, and professional writers. Each faculty member incorporates his or her passion for teaching and a solid foundation in their field of study into the curriculum. Our commitment to employ teachers whose sole responsibility is teaching has resulted in an exceptional legion of academic staff. Importantly, our teachers have a passion for education, and they make great strides to ensure SMS student athletes are successful in the classroom. Stratton Mountain School offers a rich environment - one that is intellectually challenging both in and out of the classroom. During their years at SMS, our student athletes learn to demand excellence from themselves, to balance high expectations, and to maintain a rigorous schedule. They develop the crucial ability to translate independence into the sense of responsibility and maturity they will need to be successful in college and life beyond. Small classes emphasize the dynamic learning environment, ensuring each student athlete receives the attention he or she deserves. The rich learning environments combine interactive, hands-on application with video and audio tutorials. During the winter, the academic schedule is purposely constructed to cater to the aspiring world-class athlete without diminishing his or her academic course load.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
