Here Is Where Barron Trump Is Heading To School In The Fall

Much has been made about the First Family’s decision to maintain separate residences so that 11-year-old Barron Trump can finish out the school year without being uprooted. Those days are coming to a close, and it’s decision time on how the Trump’s will handle the next school year. As Yahoo shares, a decision has been made, and the fifth-grade student will be taking his talents closer to the nation’s capital.

Barron is currently wrapping up the school year at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. There has been a ton of speculation on where he’ll be attending school next year, and First Lady Melania Trump has announced that the family has reached a decision. Barron will attend St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland starting in the fall.

"It is known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence. The mission of St. Andrew's is 'to know and inspire each child in an inclusive community dedicated to exceptional teaching, learning, and service,' all of which appealed to our family," Melania said in a statement. "We look forward to the coming school years at St. Andrew's,"

While it’ll be an adjustment for Barron and his parents, there’s also an adjustment afoot for his new school. The child of a sitting president requires specific accommodations for security purposes, but school officials indicate that they’re on it.

"As we came to know Barron through the admission process, it became clear that he, like all of our newly enrolled students, will be a great addition to St. Andrew's," a letter from school administrators to parents read in part. "School leaders are working directly with the Secret Service to ensure that ... logistics and security will continue to work smoothly and discreetly next year for all of our students and families."

St. Andrew’s was founded back in 1978, and it’s noted for small class sizes of 12 to 13 students. The school educates students from prekindergarten all the way through 12th grade, and current enrollment stands at 580 students. As you would expect, the school is top notch and known for research-informed teaching and the use of neuroscience and other brain-based research. The school is said to be about a 30-minute drive from the White House, but we’ll assume Barron and his security detail will have little trouble cruising through traffic.
