Experience Education

Upper School

Charting a PathToward a Life of Purpose

In Bush’s Upper School, students are called upon to ask questions, test out big ideas, make mistakes, seek out mentors, and create a more just, equitable, and sustainable world. Students develop skills as independent thinkers and collaborative learners through a combination of high academic expectations and signature experiential programming. 

Independent Thinking

The Upper School prepares students exceptionally well for college and for life, inspiring involved, active citizens who want to make a difference in the world. At Bush, students are asked to participate actively in learning, communities, and the world because we believe deep learning takes place inside and outside the classroom. Students are called upon to consider the greater good and learn about themselves in relation to others. 

Authentic Leadership

The best learning results from genuine connections between faculty and students. Through these critical relationships, students learn the art of collaborative work, independent research, advocacy, and authentic leadership.
