Where will Barron Trump go to school

Eleven-year-old Barron is now finishing the school year at a private school in NY where he has been living with his mother since Mr. Trump took office in January.

St. Andrew's is home to notable alums - eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, comedian Whitney Cummings and TV chef Melissa d'Arabian. but we're told Barron will be the 1st First Family member to attend.

Barron Trump is heading to D.C. "It is known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence", First Lady Melania Trump said in a statement.

According to FLOTUS, the youngest Trump child will be attending a private Episcopal school in Maryland, named St. Andrew's this fall.

Barron Trump is one of President Trump's five children.

In a letter sent to St. Andrew's families today and published by the Post, the school's administrators emphasized the school's "inclusive" mission and values.

Per the Patch, tuition for the private school is $38,590 a year - high schoolers' tuition jumps up to about $40,650.

As Melania mentioned in her statement, the school also says it values diversity, noting on its website, "We value and respect all differences, including but not limited to age, ability, ethnicity, family structure, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status".

According to Bethesda Patch, St. Andrew's is a co-ed school with 580 students between pre-school and 12th grade. The school is about 15 miles from the White House. In 2011, the school instituted an innovative research center called the Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning, or CTTL. Sidwell Friends, for example, got a signed copy of one of President Barack Obama's State of the Union addresses. Malia Sasha graduated in 2016, took a gap year, and will attend Harvard University in the fall. Her parents made a decision to live in Washington after leaving the White House so she can finish her studies there.

Originally, the White House planned on waiting until this summer to announce Barron's schooling plans. Why? In 2013, it was invited by Harvard University's Graduate School of Education to become the eighth school to join a global network of schools that conducts cutting-edge research and leads professional development in that area. If Barron continues attending this school through his middle school studies, he will work in a soup kitchen during a two-day field trip with his class. The only exception is Jimmy Carter, whose daughter, Amy, went to public schools in DC.
