Parent University

 Education for Raising Children Today
Parent University, which was started by Head of School Dr. Percy L. Abram in 2016, is an annual parent and guardian education series for the entire Seattle community that culminates in a dynamic half-day, in-person conference during the spring on The Bush School campus.
“Kids need community. It’s how they grow into themselves. This community gathering of Parent University empowers parents and guardians with tools and the space to reflect on our own journey alongside our children in meaningful and helpful ways—as we learn about ourselves we can then evolve into our best selves,” said The Bush School’s Parent University Co-Chair and parent Kelli Martin. 
This year’s conference, held on Saturday, April 29, explored topics relevant to raising children in today’s society. Headlined by keynote speaker and award-winning journalist Tonya Mosley, parents and guardians had the opportunity to hear from eleven speakers ranging from topics of digital safety, college admissions, neurodiversity, building resilience, teen vocabulary, and more.
The Bush School is an independent, coeducational day school located in Seattle, WA enrolling 715 students in grades K–12. The mission of The Bush School is to spark in students of diverse backgrounds and talents a passion for learning, accomplishment, and contribution to their communities.
