This school is in a great location, and all the classes are small and the teacers know everyone by name. The teachers could be a little bit more leniant on the kids though and I think that they get way too much homework.

Bushland is a great school, with a great staff! What surprised me was the way the teacher and students have a bond, the teachers know the students by name, even students they haven t had. It is the vision of Bushland staff and community to ensure that students will be actively engaged in positive academic and social interactions to become both independent thinkers and collaborative problem solvers. They Welcomed my family with open arms, A lot of the parents are involved also, they make sure you have an update on how you child is improving. It a great school, if you want a nice small community and great school look no further then Bushland school district!
