Usually, spunky Maddox Jolie-Pitt gets an escort to private school by either mama Angelina or papa Pitt, but yesterday must have been a special day ... he got 'em both!
TMZ was outside the prestigious Lycee Francais de New York yesterday morning as Mad returned to school after taking a week off -- the rest of the brood were elsewhere.
Perhaps expecting the humanitarian jetsetters to return to pick up Maddox, a growing group of paps and fans gathered outside at the end of the day. After security cleared a path, the crowd went nuts when Angelina walked out holding her son's hand. Just another day at school for Maddox!
