Barron Trump decided it was time to show-off a little bit to his fifth-grade classmates last week.
On Wednesday, the 11-year-old took around 80 of his fellow students from the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on a trip to The White House to meet the president and the first lady.
The whole class was accompanied by Secret Service agents.
A source familiar with the situation told the New York Post that Barron was “excited to show his classmates around.”
“All the kids got dressed up: The girls were in dresses and the boys wore khaki pants and button-downs. It was so cute,” the source said. “They had a buffet lunch and a tour of the White House and met the president and the first lady, Melania Trump.”
The source added that, “President Trump gave them all a rousing speech about living up to your potential and being the best you could be for your country.”
In September, Barron will be changing schools and attending St. Andrews Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland.
“We are very excited for our son to attend St. Andrew’s Episcopal School,” the first lady said in a statement. “It is known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.”
She added: “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. We look forward to the coming school years at St. Andrews.”
When his father defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for the presidency, it was decided that the 11-year-old Trump would stay with his mother in the Upper West Side of Manhattan to finish the school year.
Finally, after some speculation, it was announced on Monday that Trump would attend St. Andrews in Potomac, Maryland.
Tuition at the school costs over 38,000 per year and Trump will be the first presidential child to attend.
Even with a high-profile student such as Trump, it was reported that Secret Service was working with school leaders to “work smoothly and discreetly” in order to maintain “the positive feel, flow and safety” of their campus.
