Suri is set to start at Avenues this month an exclusive $39,000-a-year private school in New York’s upmarket Chelsea neighbourhood.
The exclusive school emphasises a "global curriculum", and often has a competitive waitlist of parents trying to get their children in.
But, this year it has had the opposite effect because of the paparazzi attention towards Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ daughter.
"I had two different parents call to tell me their children are beautiful young girls that look like Suri," education consultant Dana Haddad told New York Post.
"The girls will all be in uniforms, and they’re worried their daughters will be mistaken for Suri by the paparazzi outside the school."
The famously precocious Suri isn’t likely to get special treatment from other kids.
"They’re not going to gawk," said Anisha Ahooja, a former teacher at the nearby Dalton School. "It’s cooler to be the girl telling Suri Cruise, 'You can’t sit here,' than to be impressed.”
