Suri Cruise Starts Kindergarten! Is She Going To A Scientology School?Joanna Mazewski
It looks like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ little girl is all grown up! America’s most fashionable five-year-old, Suri Cruise, has officially started her elementary school education and was spotted leaving an upscale educational institution in Calabasas, Ca. last week along with her mother, Katie.
The pint-sized fashionista, who has spent most of her time in New York City this summer taking gymnastics classes, sported cute pigtails, a blue summer dress and silver ballet flats when she was picked up by her mother and family bodyguards. She also accessorized her look with a pink tiara and red nail polish for her first day of school.
It looks like young Suri has started kindergarten at the New Village Leadership Academy, which was founded by family friends Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. The school has attracted controversy and speculation over its use of Study Technology, a teaching methodology developed by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.
According to the Smiths though, the school has no religious affiliation.
Some of the subjects that will be in Suri’s curriculum include mathematics, literacy, Spanish, karate, yoga, robotics, technology, etiquette, art, and living schools.
Let’s hope Suri does great and school and feels at ease making new friends. Let’s just hope the paparazzi don’t get a hold of her report card!
