The School has maintained its strong traditions of thorough preparation for secondary day and boarding schools while making sure each child is known, appreciated, and has many opportunities to participate and lead.
Three-quarters of the students come from outside Tuxedo Park. The school provides bus transportation from northern Bergen County, New Jersey, and has bus routes extending north and west of the school into Rockland and Orange County. A strong tuition assistance program insures that the school will be accessible to families of modest means.
James Burger, the tenth headmaster of TPS, was appointed in 1994 and retired in 2011. In addition to many capital improvements made under Burger's tenure, the school benefitted from his leadership in bringing in more qualified faculty and establishing a program of professional development and evaluation, establishing endowed funds, increasing tuition assistance, installing solar panels that provide the school with 1/3 of its electricity annually, and increasing enrollment.
Kathleen McNamara served as the eleventh head of school from 2011 to 2015. Ms. McNamara led the school through its Strategic Planning Process and piloted new programs that underscored technology, engineering, and design.
Todd Stansbery joined TPS as the twelfth headmaster in July 2015. He is committed to honoring the many traditions of Tuxedo Park School.
