The Haverford School’s leafy campus, arched doorways, and neatly uniformed boys would seem to denote the sort of class and privilege that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has decried on the campaign trail.
That may be why Warren, confronted by a school-choice activist in November, denied that her kids had attended private schools. The 2020 Democratic hopeful insisted that “my kids went to public school”—a half-truth, at best, that obscures a reality at odds with her image as a scrappy public school teacher-turned-populist crusader.
While Warren’s daughter, Amelia Warren Tyagi, attended public schools for the entirety of her elementary and high school education, her son, Alex Warren, spent the majority of his formative years at one of the country’s most elite private schools, the Haverford School, according to yearbooks obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Located in suburban Philadelphia, the all-boys college preparatory school employs a “rigorous liberal arts curriculum” that recognizes boys’ “innate competitiveness,” according to the school’s website. High school tuition runs $39,500 a year. Notable alumni include billionaire scions Ronald Perelman and John Middleton, two-time Medal of Honor recipient Smedley Darlington Butler, and Free Beacon chairman Michael Goldfarb.
