Neighbors

The Bush School and Neighbors of Bush Association (NOBA) entered into a neighborhood agreement in 2003 to provide a framework for clear and timely communications between The Bush School and neighbors to resolve effectively issues of mutual interest or concern to the school and its immediate neighbors. In 2011, First African Methodist Episcopal (FAME) Church became part of the Neighborhood Agreement when it purchased the old MLK Elementary School adjacent to The Bush School (MLK F.A.M.E. Community Center). The Agreement seeks to promote positive relations and a mutually beneficial relationship between the school, its neighbors, and to lessen, to the extent reasonably possible, the impacts resulting from the operation of a school in a residential neighborhood while giving the school the flexibility it needs to achieve its educational purposes.

Representatives of the school, NOBA, and MLK meet quarterly to share information, to discuss issues of mutual interest or concern, and to resolve issues that may arise from time to time.
