  • Middle School Retreats

    The Middle School retreats were a huge success! The Sixth Grade traveled to Camp Orkila on Orcas Island, where their primary goal was to create a sense of community with each other. To accomplish this, students participated in a number of team building activities, wrote journal entries and poetry, and played field games. Photos from their trip are available here. The Seventh Grade retreat was held at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island. Each student rotated through four main activities: sea kayaking, nature and art, team building, and service to the camp. Students also learned wilderness skills, hiked, and bonded with their advisories. The primary focus of the Seventh Grade retreat was to foster trust, promote positive relationships, and encourage high levels of responsibility and respect for each other.

  • The Fifth Grade Explores Orcas Island

    The Fifth Grade recently returned from their annual retreat. They spent three days on beautiful Orcas Island at Camp Orkila. The weather was gorgeous and the Fifth Grade ambassadors represented The Bush School brilliantly. The goals of the trip were to explore nature, encourage the students to take healthy risks, and build a stronger Fifth Grade community. A variety of fun and exciting activities were offered. Students collected and studied water samples from Puget Sound, learned nature survival skills, and encouraged each other on the massive Zip Line and Giant Swing. It was a great way to kick off their final year in Lower School! See all of their adventures in this photo album

  • Celebrating Our Faculty and Staff

    During the first week of school, we asked faculty and staff to celebrate their tenure at Bush—from year one to year forty-two—with a photo. Check out this fun slideshow of pictures of Bush faculty and staff from the first day of school. Faculty have taught at Bush for an average of 9.6 years, and an average of 15.7 years of total teaching. As founder Helen Taylor Bush said, “The most important factor in any school is the teacher.” Each year, the beginning of school is an extra-special reminder that amazing teachers are the heart of The Bush School. Faculty and staff at Bush work with students every day to spark a passion for learning, accomplishment, and contribution to their communities. For those who have taught generations, for those who are in their first weeks at Bush, and for everyone in between—we are grateful.
