A Warm Welcome to our TPS Alumni!
The mission of the Alumni Office at TPS is to establish and maintain long term relationships with alumni, parents, and friends through reliable and consistent communication. We seek to create opportunities for alumni to gather, stay in touch, and give back to the school. We encourage your feedback and participation in order to help make the Alumni initiative a lively and responsive operation that is committed to both the alumni and to Tuxedo Park School. Feel free to contact Fiona Duffy at email@example.com or 845-351-4737 if you would like to share suggestions or comments.
“I was always held to a high standard, both academically and as a person. I was taught how to be a good student and thrive academically, but also how to treat others with kindness and respect. And I think that’s what matters. Not just showing us how to be good test takers, but also how to be good people and I think TPS is truly extraordinary at that.”
-Piper Jenkins, '18
