Trump now attends Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on Manhattan's Upper West Side (to the tune of $46,690 a year).

The post Barron Trump's youngest son to attend Maryland school appeared first on Vanguard News. It is known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence. Tuition for the middle school, which 11-year-old Barron will attend, runs more $38,000 a year.

Barron Trump's classmates plan to visit him in D.C.

But after the school put out a letter to parents Monday confirming Barron's attendance, the East Wing responded with a statement issued by Mrs. Trump, Grisham said in an email.

The announcement ends speculation that they would remain in NY during the entire presidency; Barron will be the first presidential son to live at the White House since John F. Kennedy, Jr.

In February this year the President announced this family would be joining him at the end of the school year, saying, "Melania goes back and forth and once Barron finishes school - it's hard to take a child out of school with a few months left - she and Barron will be moving over to the White House". "We look forward to the coming school years at St Andrew's".

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.

St. Andrew's is noted for its pioneering use of brain-based research to help students of all abilities to succeed. "St. Andrews respects family privacy and will not comment on whether a student has sought enrollment", said a representative from the school.

St Andrew's has 580 students, with an average student-teacher ratio of seven to one, according to its website.

St. Andrew's is located in the wealthy enclave of Potomac, about 17 miles northwest of the White House and a 30-minute drive in light traffic. In 2011, the school instituted an innovative research center called the Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning, or CTTL. Her sister, Sasha, is now a sophomore there. Her parents made a decision to live in Washington after leaving the White House so she can finish her studies there.

President George W. Bush's daughters had graduated from high school and were headed to college when he was elected. President Jimmy Carter made waves when his daughter, Amy, attended public school in Washington.
