He is a wonderful person. At only ten years old he has dignity and grace, and I read that he has a very high IQ. Barron is outstanding, and President Trump wants his son EDUCATED, not INDOCTRINATED, like Obama and Clinton.
The President and the First Lady have chosen a school in Potomac, Md., for Barron to attend in the fall, according to a report on Friday.
According to Washington Examiner, the first son, who is currently 11 years old and going into middle school, will attend St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland.
The decision is a departure from recent first family’s choice of school for their young kids if they stayed in the D.C.-area. Sasha and Malia Obama and Chelsea Clinton attended Sidwell Friends, a Quaker school in Bethesda, Md.
According to the school’s official website, St. Andrews Episcopal has a student to teacher ratio of 7:1 with an overall current enrollment of only 580 students.
The Daily Caller reported that if Barron were to complete middle school at St. Andrew’s, he would be required to take part in multiple “service learning activities.” One of which includes a two-day trip to work in a soup kitchen at a church in Washington.
Not unusual for private schools, St. Andrew’s also requires 20 hours of community service for high schoolers in 9th through 11th grades. Sixty hours are required of 12th graders.
I think it’s marvelous when any parents can send their children to the schools that offer the best possible education. It’s not easy being the children of any POTUS. It may sound marvelous but these children can’t go out and play Little League, roam the mall with their friends or just go to a Saturday afternoon movie like normal children.
Their security restricts their participation and limits where they can go. Yes, I realize they can have private movie screenings at the White House for their friends but they do miss a lot of normal children’s activities.
St. Andrews has an excellent reputation. It seems like a good choice. I hope that they can allow him to be a boy and avoid the press.
Best wishes for Barron!
