Matt Damon’s Kids Were Rejected From A Fancy Private School

The 22nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

Tough break for the Damon family.

Apparently, Matt Damon and his family are moving back to NY after three years on the West Coast, and naturally they have to find schools for the kiddies. Word on the street is that Matt couldn’t get his three youngest daughters into one of New York’s most exclusive private schools, an arts school in Brooklyn called St. Ann’s.

The school’s alumni include Ethan Hawke, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Zac Posen, but like I said, Damon’s kids can’t go there because the school won’t bend their application process for the Damons. Here’s Page Six’s story:

Damon is moving his family back to New York after a stint in LA — but has been summarily rebuffed by St. Ann’s, one of the city’s most exclusive schools.

Insiders tell Page Six that the Brooklyn Heights school…. has told Damon that its classes for next year are fully booked.

We’re told [Damon] was hoping that three of his daughters with wife Luciana Barroso — Isabella, 10, Gia, 7, and Stella, 5 — could [attend] the venerable institution.

“They had a conversation with the school, but St. Ann’s just won’t bend the rules,” said an insider. “They don’t care [who the parents of its students are]. A lot of schools will bend the rules very happily; they’ll bring celebrities’ kids in midway through the year or do whatever they want. St. Ann’s just isn’t doing it.”

The school, with tuition that runs between $36,080 and $42,555 per year depending on the grade, offers classes from pre-K through high school and says on its website, “So that every child will flourish, we eschew grades, rankings and prizes in favor of ongoing dialogue and teacher reports.”

The move will be something of a homecoming for the family. When they upped sticks for the West Coast in 2013, Damon said on “Today” that it had been a tough decision to relocate.

“Basically all of our friends with little kids are out there [in LA],” he said. “We’re a little conflicted. We love it here, we’re really happy here and New York will always be here. It might just turn out to be a little jaunt out there and then a return . . . It’s hard to leave here.”

Given how important education is to Damon this was probably a big setback for them. But also…why is Damon moving? He lives right down the street from Affleck, who may or may not have been crashing at Damon’s guest house for a while if you believe the tabloids. Work? New Scenery? That’s the BIG Mystery here…I’m sure they’ll find SOME school to put those rich famous kids in.

There’s Nothing More American Than This, Right Now.

Matt Damon Rides The Matterhorn At Disneyland

I that that back. If there was a bald eagle and apple pie up in there with good ol Matt Damon, THAT would be the most American thing ever…

But I guess until that happens, here ya go.  It’s Matt Damon riding the famous Matterhorn with his wife Luciana and some pals at Disneyland in Anaheim. And despite being in the front of the bobsled, it seems like he’s staying dry and sexy.

You’re welcome, y’all.

Matt Damon Is All Like, “Sorry BEN AFFLECK, Marriage Be Cray.”

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck And HBO Reveals Winner Of 'Project Greenlight' Season 4

Hey Ben Affleck, your good pal Matt Damon has pretty much NO advice for ya. BYEEEEE

Ironically while Ben Affleck is in the midst of the s*itstorm that is his divorce, Matt Damon is gearing up to celebrate his 10th wedding anniversary with wife Luciana in December. Though the couple have been together for over a decade, Damon says he “wouldn’t give anybody any advice” about maintaining a successful relationship. Yeah, and you don’t, Matt:

“I think marriage is insane,” Damon admitted to ET. “It’s a crazy idea but I love being married to my wife. So I wouldn’t tell anybody else about their relationship. But I’m lucky I found my wife. And I guess maybe, if there’s any secret … it’s to feel lucky.”

Oh cool. I guess…feel lucky? Anything else, you great sage?

“So much of it is out of your hands,” Damon said. “I mean, I just had that conversation with my father this weekend. He says the same thing to me. Says it’s God’s grace, is what he said. Because you just don’t get lucky.”

(Via ET)

Oh cool. Some good, constructive advice.  Matt, you should write a book.
