Where is Barron Trump's school

The Daily Caller broke the news on Sunday that the president's youngest child will attend St. Andrew's Episcopal School after he finally moves to D.C. from NY with the first lady.

The announcement answered one of the lingering questions surrounding the first family's living arrangements.

Via one possible route on the George Washington Parkway, Google Maps indicates the trip to school from the White House will take about 35-40 minutes - and that's without D.C.'s infamous morning traffic crunch.

St. Andrew's administration also assured other families of students already studying at the school that despite Barron attending, they would try their best to avoid disruption.

Incidentally, Jenna Bush attended St Andrew's Episcopal School in Austin until she graduated in 2000 - months before her father took office as president.

"It is known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence", she continued.

According to Bethesda Patch, St. Andrew's is a co-ed school with 580 students between pre-school and 12th grade. If Barron attends the school for the following six years, it will cost his parents over $200,000 with fees. Once the 11-year-old relocates with his mother to the DC area, he will attend the prestigious St. Andrew's Episcopal School in suburban Maryland.

We know where Barron Trump is heading to school in the Washington, D.C. region next year.

St. Andrews declined to comment. Tuition for students in sixth, seventh and eighth grade is $38,590 per year for the upcoming school year.

Barron Trump is set to attend St. Andrew's Episcopal School, based in Potomac, Maryland. The Obamas, like the Clintons, the Nixons and the Roosevelts before them, sent their children to Sidwell Friends School, the private Quaker-run academy that has long educated Washington's elite. Three of former Vice President Joe Biden's granddaughters were classmates of the Obama girls.

WNYC-FM in NY first reported the letter Monday.

He will be the first president's child to attend the school, which was founded in 1978.

The only other president to ever send his child to a public school was Teddy Roosevelt in 1904. But he and his fifth-grade class traveled by bus to Washington last week to meet the president, have lunch and tour the White House, Grisham confirmed Monday.
