Welcome New Families

Welcome to The Bush School!

One of the best parts of the new school year is the opportunity to welcome new students and families to our school community. We can hardly wait to get started and are thrilled to have you joining the Bush community.

Please save the dates for our Lower, Middle and Upper School welcome events listed below. Our division directors will be in contact with new families during the summer and in mid-June, parents of new students will receive a username and password to the Bush web portal which provides access to additional resources and back-to-school information.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus in the coming months, and please be sure to reach out to us in the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid with any questions along the way.
