About Bush

Senior Leadership

Leading the Way

The Bush Senior Leadership Team (SLT)  is the core group of administrators who lead all of the school's divisions and departments. Led by Head of School Percy L. Abram, the SLT supports the school’s daily operations, supervises all employees, and puts the school’s strategic priorities into action. The leadership team truly lives out the mission of The Bush School by bringing forth the perspectives of individuals with diverse backgrounds and talents in its composition, decision-making, and vision. The twelve-person SLT is 50% women and 50% BIPOC (Black, Indegenious, or People of Color). This level of commitment to diversity in leadership by the school is extremely rare among the 1,700 member schools in the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
