How did the Obama's choose their daughter's school?

Barak's daughters have started school this week in D.C. 

I believe they attend Sidwell Friends Day School. 

Here is the link to the school

Out of all the schools available to the Obamas, why do you think they chose this one?

I'm sure the fact that Chelsea Clinton attended this school when the last Democratic president was in office helped them consider it.

Like any parents, the strong reviews were probably a huge consideration. It's a five-star school with very positive reviews. Here are some reviews right here on GS:

And hopefully, as all parents should, I'd assume the Obamas looked at "fit" for their daughters--looking for a school that represents their values and will help their daughters thrive.
