Her famous parents have said publicly that there is no animosity where their daughter is concerned, but there is no doubt that Suri Cruise is stuck in the middle.
And her mom, Katie Holmes, is doing everything in her power to give Suri a relatively normal upbringing.
Life & Style is exclusively reporting that Holmes has enrolled her 6-year-old in Avenues, a nearly $40,000-a-year private school opening this fall in NYC.
Says a source, “Katie has eagerly been telling Suri all about the lunchrooms, basketball courts and different activities Avenues offers. Suri’s really excited about it.”
At the 215,000-square-foot school, Suri will learn Spanish or Mandarin, along with the basics: reading, writing, math, science and music. While previous reports claimed Suri would be attending the all-girls Catholic school, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Life & Style can confirm Suri will start first grade at Avenues, which overlooks the High Line in NYC and is just a few short blocks away from Katie and Suri’s Chelsea-neighborhood apartment.
Avenues has a fitness center and rooftop playground, plus a main gym that includes full-size basketball and volleyball courts. The school also has a partnership with nearby Chelsea Piers athletic facilities, where Suri’s taken gymnastics classes for years, so she’ll feel right at home!
Avenues calls itself a “world school” and will have branches in China, India, Africa and Europe, along with other U.S. cities, so when Suri — who’s already a world traveler — is in high school, she can do a semester abroad!
The thing is, and we would never have thought we’d find ourselves saying this, but Suri seems to be so much happier in photos when she is with Cruise as opposed to Holmes.
And, we’ve tried to, perhaps, throw the blame on the paparazzi, but when she is with both parents the photogs are following her….it’s just an observation!
