[LMS kids are] grounded and have a strong sense of who they are.
- High school history teacher

LMS students enter public and private high schools prepared to succeed in larger, competitive environments.  Many of them place into honors classes in high school and transition with ease to the testing and grading of conventional environments. LMS students develop independence, resourcefulness, teamwork, and great problem-solving skills throughout their years at LMS – and take all of that with them through their remaining educational experiences and into their professional lives.

  • Here Are a Few Examples of Alumni Who Grew Up LMS

Friends at LMS, Teddy Hattemer-Maier `10 and James Lindberg `11 continued to play together (in this photo, on the BB&N football team) in high school.  They have headed off to college now:  Ted is at Villanova University in Pennsylvania, and James at Colby College in Maine.
Sylvia Blake`13 now attends Smith College. Sylvia recently graduated from the Cambridge School of Weston (CSW), where she was co-Head of the Feminist Coalition and participated in other activities including playing for the field hockey and ultimate frisbee teams, exploring her passion for photography, and furthering her love of science. Sylvia has spent many summers at a three-week sleepover camp where the mission is to turn girls into strong leaders through female empowerment and building self-esteem and confidence. She tells us, "While high school always comes with its share of stresses and pressures, I feel that LMS prepared me fully for being able to take on many new endeavors."
Alex Mines `10 recently co-founded Hearty Start, a NYC non-profit focused on providing breakfast to the disadvantaged in that city. Actively involved in his community and wanting to make the world a better place, Alex jumped at the opportunity to bring breakfast to New Yorkers in need. He puts his talents to good use as head of strategic development at Hearty Start. After graduating from LMS, Alex enjoyed his four years at Concord Academy and then attended Washington University in St. Louis. 
Aditi Dugar `04 attended Lexington High School after leaving LMS and then went on to graduate from Cornell University with a B.S. in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering in 2012. After interships at Zapotec Energy in Cambridge, MA and Apple in Cupertino, CA, Aditi landed at Proctor & Gamble in South Boston where she is currently a Process Development Engineer.
Theodore Ho `02 is currently a Ph.D candidate in Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco. Ted is studying autophagy and mechanisms of aging in hematopoietic stem cells in the lab of Emmanuelle Passegue. Prior to his doctoral studies, he graduated from Harvard University with a masters degree in Bioengineering and a BA in Human Development and Regenerative Biology.

LMS middle school students receive guidance from their teachers and the Head of School regarding high school options.  Parents and students can meet with the Head to discuss public and private schools in the spring of 7th grade and throughout 8th grade.  Aline Gery, current Head of School, worked in a high school admission office for 13 years prior to coming to LMS; she also visits area high schools to stay current with their offerings and admission processes.  LMS coordinates the grade reports and other application or matriculation materials from the school to send to high schools so families need only be responsible for their own sections of the applications or matriculation requirements.
