First lady: Barron to attend private Episcopal school in MD

Where will Barron Trump go to school

But first, the youngster will complete the current school year at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on Manhattan's Upper West Side, where he's in fifth grade.

Richard Coco, a spokesman for St. Andrew's, declined to comment on whether Barron Trump would attend, citing the school's privacy policies.

St Andrews had meant to wait until the summer to make the announcement in order to stave off possible protests while school was in session, the Washington Post reports.

The news of Barron Trump's new school comes shortly after his older sister, Tiffany Trump, announced that she was attending Georgetown Law in the fall.

Melania Trump will move in to the White House this summer after having remained in Trump Tower in NY since her husband took over the presidency in January. It has a median class size of 15 and a 7:1 student to teacher ratio, according to information on the school's website.

Barron Trump, President Donald Trump's youngest child, will attend St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, this fall.

The Trumps also could have chosen another close-by Episcopal prep school, St. Albans, an all-boys day school and boarding school near the National Cathedral in Washington.

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. Tuition for its middle school-Barron will enroll in the sixth grade-is $38, 590.

The school is known for research-informed teaching and the use of neuroscience and other brain-based research, both to help high-achieving students unlock their potential and to tailor education to children with learning disabilities or differences.

St. Andrew's was founded in 1978 and only has about 580 students from pre-K through 12th grade, the Washington Post reports.

The White House had planned to hold off until summer to make the announcement - in part because of concern that St. Andrew's might become the site of protests while school was still in session. Sasha Obama is a sophomore. He is the first child of a president to attend the school. The Obamas chose to stay in Washington after leaving the White House so she could finish high school at Sidwell. The only exception is Jimmy Carter, whose daughter, Amy, went to public schools in DC.
