Barron Trump to attend private school in Maryland this fall

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. It is known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.

As a middle schooler at St. Andrew's, Barron will be required to complete "service learning activities", in which "students take a two-day field trip to a church in Washington that runs a soup kitchen".

Another Trump is planning to attend school in the Washington, D.C. area this fall.

Melania Trump announced the choice of school in a statement.

There are some perks to being the president's kid, as Barron Trump's classmates learned when the first son reportedly took all fellow fifth graders at his NY school on a field trip to the White House on May 10.

The school is approximately 20 miles from the White House.

The school is small, catering to only 580 students.

President Donald Trump's youngest son, Barron, will attend school in Maryland in the fall, first lady Melania Trump announced Monday.

St. Andrews declined to comment.

Eleven-year-old Barron is finishing the current school year at a private institution in NY.

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". The school has just under 600 students, from prekindergarten through 12th grade.

The White House announcement comes after St Andrew's sent a letter to parents on Friday, informing them of the First Family's decision. For instance, the teachers at the school are trained in the All Kinds of Minds program, which aims to use brain research to tailor instruction to different types of learners.

This school's record for students going on to college can't get any better as 100 percent of their graduates go on to attend college.

Chelsea Clinton as well as Malia and Sasha Obama attended Sidwell, as did President Richard Nixon's daughters, Tricia and Julie, according to the Post.

When President Jimmy Carter moved to the White House in 1977, he and his wife Rosalynn did something rare: They sent nine-year-old Amy to a predominantly black D.C. public school.
