Meet Our Head of School
As member of the Mizzentop community since 2006, I look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Please reach out to me at any time at (845) 855-7338 or
Welcome to Mizzentop Day School, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.

My first experience of Mizzentop’s powerful mission was as a teacher and parent. The School was a trusted partner for my husband, Chris, and me as we guided our two children along the path to young adulthood. Matthew and Ellie grew as students, athletes and people during their time at MDS. By commencement, they were prepared to meet the demands of secondary school and higher education and to embrace their roles in the greater community. I have never ceased to be grateful for what my family gained from that partnership with Mizzentop, and as Head of School, it is now my privilege to focus all my effort on supporting other families.

For over 20 years, Mizzentop has continued to refine a traditional yet innovative program, one designed to meet the needs of children from Pre-Kindergarten all the way through Eighth Grade. We encourage balance by cultivating the mind, body and spirit. We ask ourselves to live by the Living Values.

As a teacher, parent and Head of School, I invite you to visit us soon. You will find a special school with classes that promote joyful, active learning, and valued traditions that are embraced by a diverse community. You will find Mizzentop Day School, just like I did.

For the journey ahead,

Karin Shultz
Head of School
