Small School. Big Difference.
We are committed to empowering lifelong learners by developing character, encouraging curiosity, and fostering confidence in our students resulting in thoughtful, articulate, passionate leaders and change makers.
Strong character builds a strong community.
Self-awareness leads to personal growth and therefore students are provided time and guidance to intentionally reflect on their goals and progress. In our diverse student body we celebrate individual identities to build awareness and acceptance of our unique community.
To this day, we have no regrets about sending our son to TPS and joining this very special place and family. We believe the education he received, the friendships he cultivated and the relationships/interactions he built with his teachers could not be replicated.Desai Family
Tuxedo Park School Students are excited to engage in continuous learning, exhibit kindness and awareness, contribute to their community in meaningful ways, adapt and thrive in our ever-changing world, and find joy in all moments of their lives.
Respect for others, listening to opinions different from your own, and personal reflection for growth are ideals woven throughout all grade levels.
An emphasis on public speaking at an early age develops students' ability to self-advocate and communicate effectively with both peers and adults.
Opportunities for students to lead within the school are abundant, as well as developing passions.
Students are challenged to envision a better world and how they can be a part of it. At TPS we are not afraid of change.
Small Class Sizes Provide Deeper Connection
Small classes at TPS (5:1 ratio) are intentionally designed to promote student engagement. collaboration with peers, and connections with faculty.
What is the Value of an Independent Education?
Defining what matters to you and your family will go a long way in helping you decide on the right school.
Tuxedo Park School offers a values-based education, high academic standards, excellent teachers who provide personal attention to each and every student, an inclusive community, and lifelong connections for families.
We do not have a high school because we want to preserve an environment in which the needs of younger students remain paramount. In schools that extend through to the twelfth grade, school culture tends to orbit around the high school. In a Pre-K-9 model, our seventh, eighth, and ninth grade students have more opportunities to lead, and our younger students have more developmentally-appropriate role models.
