Welcome to Tuxedo Park School’s Primary School! Our Primary School encompasses Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3. This section of our website provides descriptions of curricular philosophy and programs, updates on grade-level news and events, and recommended resources. I invite you to begin here your exploration of what makes the Primary School at Tuxedo Park School truly special!
We are a community of students, faculty, and parents committed to our mission. We honor effort and excellence by customizing the learning experience to challenge and support each learner to develop lasting habits of mind that approach the world with curiosity, compassion, and resilience. We inspire a lifelong love of learning by providing invigorating intellectual experiences to develop knowledge of mathematics, science, language arts, history, foreign language, technology, physical education, and the fine and performing arts. We celebrate each student by recognizing the strengths and talents of each child and investing in our classroom and divisional communities through shared experiences. We value our traditions and historic community by engaging in school-wide events, connecting with buddy classes, participating in service projects, and soaking in the beautiful natural setting of the school through play and learning. We prepare students for a changing world by investing in the professional growth and excellence of our faculty, providing students with digital literacy and cross-culture competency skills, and promoting experiences that develop learners who are collaborative, creative, and articulate communicators of their thinking.
Our core values—Be Kind, Be Fair, Be Responsible—play out every day in the Primary School as students, faculty, and families work together to nurture and develop children who are smart of mind, good of heart, and prepared with the skills to meet what their future will bring.
