Tuxedo Park School, a premier PK-9th grade coeducational independent school located in Tuxedo Park, NY, has announced the appointment of Todd Stansbery as Head of School.

“I am honored and delighted to join the TPS family. I am so fortunate to be among such dedicated and caring students, faculty and parents. It’s a strong and energizing sense of community, palpable when you walk on campus,” said Stansbery.

Effective July 1, 2015, the appointment of Todd Stansbery as TPS' Head of School follows an extensive and deliberate search process, where over 40 qualified candidates applied for the position. Stansbery was selected after a rigorous vetting process and the unanimous decision by both the Search Committee and the school’s Board of Trustees.

“We are all very excited to welcome Todd. He has the qualifications, qualities and experience that best align with our strategic initiatives and he is truly the right fit for the TPS community. His leadership, guidance and commitment will serve us well in our mission to develop life-long learners and locally-minded global citizens,” said TPS Board of Trustees President Pam van der Lee.

Stansbery will be the 12th Head of School in the institution’s impressive 115-year history. He joins TPS following a decade-long tenure as Head of School at The Swain School, where through curriculum strengthening, innovative programs and STEAM initiatives, strategic planning and faculty development, he organically revitalized and developed the school both academically and financially.

“I am honored and delighted to join the TPS family. I am so fortunate to be among such dedicated and caring students, faculty and parents. It’s a strong and energizing sense of community, palpable when you walk on campus,” said Stansbery. “Before me, there have been many excellent leaders and visionary educators who have built this innovative and robust learning community positioned very well for success. I’m excited to be a meaningful part of continuing that upward trajectory.”

Todd and his wife Nancy, Senior Advancement Officer for the NY metropolitan region for Dickinson College, have two children. Peter is a recent St. Andrew’s School graduate heading to Skidmore College this fall, and Peggy is a rising 8th grader at TPS.
