The Tuxedo Park School Garden is home to students who share a common interest in gardening.

The Tuxedo Park School Garden is home to students who share a common interest in gardening. The purpose is to empower students to learn how to grow, nourish, harvest, and sell their own food. It is a space where students collaborate together to meet the mission, true sustainability. The TPS organic garden provides an excellent facility to conduct controlled experiments on plant physiology, photosynthesis and respiration, and is an inspiration for students to design and tests their own ideas and theories.

Over the summer garden harvests were shared with local eateries, Dottie Audrey's and Seven Lake Station. 

Stay tuned for a feature story in DIRT Magazine.

Eighth Grade finished their study of World War II with a visit from decorated WWII Veteran Eugene Polinsky.

Eighth Grade finished their study of World War II with a visit from decorated WWII Veteran Eugene Polinsky.

Mr. Polinsky along with several other men flew night operations from a then secret base in England known only as Station 179 (Harrington). The base was located about ten miles west of Kettering, Northamptonshire. They shared the base with two other bomb groups. He was a navigator in this Air Force special operations group; the 492nd/801st Bomb Group known as the “Carpetbaggers. Mr. Polinsky is the only surviving member of his crew.

The program was the brainchild of Eighth Grader Ethan W., a relative of Mr. Polinsky. Ethan worked with his History Teacher, Ms. Portia Hinshaw, to invite Mr. Polinsky and members of his family to visit TPS to speak to the students about his experiences during the war.

Tuxedo Park School's Annual Art Show was on exhibit in the History Room from May 18-24, 2019. 

Did you know that art education has been scientifically proven to promote self-directed learning, and sharpen critical and creative skills. The art curriculum at Tuxedo Park School has exposed our students to a wide array of educational benefits far beyond the confines of the art room. TPS students study a wide variety of art mediums, under the careful tutelage of Ms. Megan Sweeney, who has developed and curated a meaningful program. Art at TPS moves fluidly into many subject areas and faculty look forward to cross-curricular work for specific projects.
