Message from the Head of School
Welcome to the Tuxedo Park School website. As the head of school, I’d like to personally welcome you to TPS and invite you to explore us online.
Having worked at independent schools for over 29 years, I can say that the TPS community is truly amazing. An independent private school education for your child is one of the greatest investments you can make. With our small class sizes, outstanding faculty, and strong academics, a TPS education will prepare your child for secondary school, college, and beyond.
TPS’s commitment to its students is what attracted me to this wonderful school. Our dedicated and caring faculty strive to provide meaningful learning opportunities for students in a safe and happy environment. Each member of our staff works diligently to engage students intellectually and emotionally as they navigate an academically challenging curriculum. Together, we have created a culture that allows our students to maximize their own curiosity amongst a community of learners.
We want our students to live great lives that honor effort and excellence, reflect kindness and fairness, and highlight the importance of responsibility to themselves and others. With an emphasis on character education, we support parents in fostering lifelong learning. We work hard to give our students individual attention with differentiation in instruction and pedagogical approaches to meet our students’ individual and collective needs. TPS’s program and curriculum helps students find their place in the school community, and prepares them to be global citizens.
If you are a prospective family, a new family, or a current family please enjoy reading through our website. It is a testimony to our entire school community. It has taken many years of hard work to build the culture we have today, and we are very proud of who we are. Steeped in meaningful tradition, we strive to find new pathways to engage our students each and every day. Come see our beautiful campus and our fantastic community for yourself!
With much appreciation,
Todd P. Stansbery
