One new student will stand out more than others on the first day of school Monday at the private Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach. That’s the 15-year-old-boy said to be 6-foot-7 inches tall. The one accompanied to school by Secret Service agents.

Barron Trump.

Ralph Maurer, head of the school, emailed parents of students on Wednesday that former President Donald Trump’s youngest child will be attending the school. Students in grades 7-12 attend the school. Barron is starting 10th grade and will be part of the class of 2024.

The school, founded in 2011 by Palm Beach billionaire Bill Koch, normally does not disclose personal information about the families of students, but did so in this case with the Trump family’s consent, Maurer said in the email.

“A small contingent of (Secret Service) agents will be present during each school day,” Maurer wrote. “We are working directly with the Secret Service to ensure that logistics and security work smoothly and discreetly with little impact on students, faculty, staff, or day-to-day operations.”
