John Paulding School Named National PTA School of Excellence 


We are excited to announce John Paulding School has been named a 2019-2021 National PTA School of Excellence! To earn this designation, John Paulding, in partnership with the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns PTA, demonstrated it welcomed and empowered families to support student success and school improvements during the course of the 2018-2019 school year. The area of improvement JP pursued was the arts. A special note:  JP is one of only fifteen schools in New York to receive this designation for the 2019-2021 period, and it’s the only School of Excellence in Westchester County. 

Students, staff, families and administrators celebrated this significant accomplishment at JP with a presentation of the award to Principal Barnett before this year’s kindergarten holiday sing-a-long. Congratulations, JP and the PTA!
