I have been going to bush for quite a few years now, and being at the school makes me happy. I love that all my classes are interesting and offer new perspectives. The STEM classes are challenging but come with good teachers to help you through it. I will say that the diversity at bush isn't very well but the new kindergarten class has so much diversity! This gives me hope that bush will continue to be an excellent school for students who want to be the best, kindest, smartest, and happiest versions of themselves.
Review The Bush School
The Bush School's theater department has had an absolutely incredible impact on my life for the better. After four years of involvement, I know that I am far more confident, outspoken, and motivated, and I'm incredibly grateful for the connections I've made along the way.
The head of the upper school is always open to talking. He loves hearing new ideas and will work to introduce them as he can. Both learning coordinators and a guidance counselor are easily accessible. The guidance counselors office is always open and the school understands that being a teenager is stressful and will allow you to take a class period to calm down there. The administration and students have tight bonds and are often considered friends as well as a teacher/student. Bush is very accepting and there is little bullying and no dress code, although students sometimes receive requests to dress appropriately. The only issue is that in recent years, some changes have been made without the involvement of the student body, which violates the sense of trust between those making the decisions and those who feel they should be involved.
