The Bush School Reviews

I attended the Bush School from k-12 in my experience the schools elementary and middle school was good. They allowed for kids to explore their passions and instilled independent as well as critical thinking at a young age. I am extremely grateful for the Bush high school in helping me get into college and teach me critical skills for the professional world. However, with a student population that is as privileged as this one, and primarily white, students who are on financial aid as well as identify as a person of color constantly have to put up safeguards to protect their racial identity and socio-economic standing. The school also disregards students' mental health and doesn't have qualified counselors to assist students with mental illness. The Bush School praises itself for its diversity but its demographics don't reflect diversity in any capacity other than utilizing students of color in acts of tokenism.

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.
A great school with an excellent focus on experiential education. I had a great time there. It won't be for everyone, especially considering it's quite small, but it's a school that I'm very glad I went to.
