Welcome New Families

Blaze Your Trail Welcome to The Bush School

We believe that students learn by doing.
— Helen Taylor Bush, founder
Welcome to The Bush School! We are thrilled to welcome you to our bright, caring, and heart-centered Blazer family. Bush students share many traits: They’re smart, inclusive, creative, and kind. 

Our students in the Lower School develop an understanding of themselves as individuals and as members of the Bush community through joyful, hands-on learning and thoughtful guidance from faculty and staff. Students in the Middle School are encouraged to take risks, try new activities, and find new passions in a safe and supportive learning environment. Bush students grow to be critical, creative, and independent in thought, ethical in judgment and action, and active citizens in the global community.

Get to know The Bush School through our interactive and comprehensive webpage designed for newly admitted families. Join us for a welcome event, connect with Bush ambassadors, talk with a member of the Bush team over email, phone, or Zoom. Join us on campus and discover the people, place, and programs that make The Bush School unique.

We can’t wait to see how you blaze your trail at The Bush School!
