President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle shell out a whopping $70,000 a year to send their two daughters to an elite private school, but the academy has been embroiled in a shocking cocaine scandal!
Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., is also involved in a stunning court battle that threatens to expose even more sordid sex and drug secrets, according to a new report in the National Enquirer.
The First Parents publicly support the school where Malia, 14, is a freshman, and Sasha, 11, is in sixth grade, but the Enquirer has exclusively learned they’re concerned by the school’s disgraceful problems, according to an Obama family insider.
“Certainly, the trouble at the school has upset both Barack and Michelle,” reveals the source. “Some friends have suggested the girls be tutored privately at the White House, but the Obamas are keen to have the girls’ educational experience be as normal as possible. They don’t want them home-schooled.”
The Enquirer has learned drug and alcohol use is rampant among students - 71 percent of Sidwell students said they at tended parties where drugs and alcohol were available, ac cording to an official study published in the school newspaper, “Horizon.”
What’s more, nearly 25 percent of the senior boys polled admitted to driving under the influence of alcohol!
“I have seen kids snorting coke, smoking pot, getting high and boozing,” the former stu dent, now an adult, told the Enquirer. “There’s huge money at the school and the older kids host parties at their private residences. Many of them live in big mansions in Washington, or in affluent suburbs where drugs and booze are common."
Shockingly, a Sidwell graduate was recently arrested for “pos session with intent to distribute cocaine and methylene (also known as Ecstasy).”
According to published re ports, Hugh L. Elsbree, 31, was busted by D.C. police in April for running a drug lab out of a luxury apartment complex in the District’s Adams Morgan neighborhood.
The reports note that Elsbree was a “graduate of Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C.,” and also had a master’s degree from Boston University.
Meanwhile, a $10 million lawsuit against Sidwell threatens to rip the lid off an alleged sleazy sex scandal in volving the school’s former staff psychologist, James Huntington, who’s been fired.
According to bombshell court papers obtained by the Enquirer, Huntington was allegedly carrying on an affair with the mar ried mother of a 5-year-old female student he was counseling. The amorous shrink allegedly took his three children, the mother and her two kids to a Washington, D.C., hotel, where he booked ad joining rooms so the couple could “fool around” while the children slept, according to the suit.
The source said: “For all the money the Obamas are spending to send their girls to Sidwell, the school is rife with the same scandals they’d hoped to avoid at a public school.”
