Experience Education

Middle School

An awakening to what's possible

Take risks, discover strengths
Each student is provided a wide variety of opportunities in experiential learning that balances the pursuit of individual interests with risk-taking in new arenas. Learning extends beyond the classroom walls to encompass the collective goals of exploration, interaction, investigation, and service to the larger community.

Turn ideas into reality
Middle School at Bush builds on the foundation of joyful learning in the Lower School by challenging students to discover their strengths and to turn their ideas into reality. The Middle School program harnesses the growing capacity for critical thinking and self-awareness in young adolescents, meeting all students where they are and enabling them to find success in a progressive and demanding educational program. 

Middle School faculty are expert guides on the journey from childhood to adolescence
During this time in life, the brain is more tuned to new experiences and more sensitive to change. At Bush, this is an opportunity to support student growth through positive challenges. Our Middle School faculty model trusting adult-student relationships, help students respond to stress, and create caring environments that support emotional and academic skill development.
