Barron Trump has completed his first two weeks at his new school, The Oxbridge Academy — with his first lesson being one in kindness.
Donald Trump‘s son, 16, has enrolled in the private Palm Beach academy (near Mar-A-Lago) which costs a grand total of $34,800-a-year.
This past Tuesday, the school posted a photo of students wearing masks, writing: “Oxbridge’s Culture of Kindness includes learning how to listen and pay attention not just to what someone is saying, but how they are saying it.
“Eighth graders Charlie Wiggle, Margaret Toner, and Marco Raffinengo participate in this exercise in dignity and respect. #kindness.”
A spokesperson for the elite school, founded by a Koch brother, made the announcement just last month, as they confirmed that 16-year-old Barron will graduate from the class of 2024.

“We look forward to welcoming him into our school and community,” the school’s Director of Advancement Scott Siegfried said, according to People.
The school informed parents through an email as they cautioned that the secret service will now have a presence on the 54-acre campus.
“They want to have little impact on our day-to-day operations,” the school said of the secret service.
“They’ve done this for other former presidents’ kids. They’re fantastic.”
It is one of the county’s few private schools choosing to mask up this semester, informing parents before the school year began that a mandate would be in place, according to The Palm Beach Post.
Barron — who was said to be “all into sports” by his mom Melania Trump in 2018 — chose the academy due to its phenomenal soccer program.
And in 2017, Barron was seen wearing an Arsenal Football Club shirt on the White House front lawn.
Barron was also photographed alongside his parents boarding Marine One while wearing soccer cleats and high red socks. The academy was founded in 2011 by billionaire William Koch.
