Lower School

To know and to be known

Build a foundation
Social, emotional, and academic growth is fostered through a curriculum that encourages skill-building. Through literacy, math, social studies, science, language, the arts, technology, and physical education, we teach critical and creative thinking, ethical judgment and action, intercultural fluency, and local and global citizenship.

Confident, joyful learning
The Lower School involves each student in an environment of inquisitiveness and connectedness. At Bush, we believe that every time we consider a new idea, do something in a different way, or try something out of our comfort zone, we exercise the possibility to imagine. Every time we build, create, tinker, and muck around with materials, we open a window to that world of imagination.

Lower School faculty nurture curiosity and love for learning
Students in the Lower School delve into a highly personalized, inquiry-based program under the tutelage of talented teachers who honor and cherish childhood. With contagious passion and meaningful incorporation of play into each lesson, Bush's Lower School faculty cultivate in each student a passion for discovery that carries them through their entire lives.
