Sidwell Friends: a look at the Obamas' scandal-plagued prep school

 January 3, 2024

The elite prep school that Barack Obama's two daughters attended has been rocked by its fair share of scandals.

Sidwell Friends - a feeder school to Ivy league universities like Harvard - is notorious for the intensely competitive, cutthroat behavior of the students...and their parents.

Unfortunately, the $50,000 per year school has also failed to protect students from being abused by staff.

Obamas' school rocked by controversy

During President Obama's first term, the elite school fired one of its middle school teachers for molesting a boy. That teacher, Robert Paterson, was sentenced to five years of probation.

In 2017, Sidwell was in the news again - this time for firing a music teacher who was found to have molested a child while working at a previous school.

In 2011, a cuckolded husband hit the school with a $10 million lawsuit over an affair between his wife and a former psychologist and sex ed teacher who taught Obama's daughter, Malia.

Sidwell has also received media attention over the cutthroat behavior of the parents - who reportedly spread malicious rumors about other parents' kids to ruin their college apps.

The parents of one former Sidwell student actually sued the school after she failed to get into her desired Ivy colleges - and even pleaded with the Supreme Court to hear the case.

Obamas set a poor example...

The average Sidwell parent sounds a lot like the Obamas - but unlike the average Sidwell parent, the Obamas had no trouble securing a spot at Harvard for their daughter Malia.

Barack is himself a Harvard grad, and he maintains connections to the school that he recently tapped in a failed effort to rescue Harvard's woke President Claudine Gay, who lost her job over plagiarism and her response to anti-Semitism on campus.

These days, Sasha and Malia Obama are following in the footsteps of their social-climbing parents, partying with Hollywood stars and generally behaving like trendy socialites.

Both daughters are smokers, like their dad - and both daughters have been advised by their mom not to get too hung up on having kids.

All things considered, it looks like the Obamas are doing as good of a job raising their kids as they did running the country.

Both Barack and Michelle have continued to throw bombs into political dialogue, including through their lucrative media ventures, which include a new Netflix movie labeled by some as anti-white.
