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.

I have loved my time at Bush. I love the teachers, I love the classes, and the campus is extraordinary and it sounds like it's only going to be getting better in the next few years. One complaint: I dance outside of Bush (they have no dance program to speak of) and there is very little recognition for non-Bush athletes.
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.
