My daughter has attended this school since 2011, she began at the beginning of 1st Grade. Right away the teachers recognized my daughters capabilities and had her tested for the GT program. Most of the teachers are great to work with. My daughter is challenged daily with her work and never have I felt that "this school has dumby my child down". The only thing I have noticed as my child gets older has less interest in school is she gets lazy. All in all I think this is a great school!
We have been at Bush since 2010. When we first started at Bush it was great environment for my child. The principal was awesome and the staff was great. It felt like a homely place for the students to be. The staff genuinely cared about each student. But then we received a new principal that have been here now for 4 years, who is not friendly and not a people person. The atmosphere in the school has changed and is no longer a place where my children want to be. Since we have been at Bush since 2010 we have had 4 new VP and then this year we have a massive staff turn over and received 12+ new teachers. I feel as though they don't cater enough to the students who are academicly gifted but those with a disadvantage. This school has dumby my child down. I am looking into another school for the up coming school. As a parent I can't continuely watch my child degress any more.
My daughter attends Bush Elementary. The teachers are great. The staff is very helpful. The parent involvment is what you put into it. If you do not want to be involved then you don't. If you want to be then there are many things to be involved in. The new principal is very nice. Great school, Great teachers!!
i love this school for 2 years but as far as them letting the parents get involved its not good, i tryed to volunteer and join pta but not one will call me back and new princable wont find me anything to do in there ,i am willing to give my free time 24/7 but they dont seem to want the parents in there , and i feel its due to a lot of the teachers are yelling at students more for no reasons, i think it was due to the changes in there this year by changing teachers ,the children are not as happy this year like past times,
As a parent of a Barbara Bush student for the past 7 years I must say that I am very pleased with the school. We have a wonderful cultrual mix and a unified respect for reading, learning, math, respect, and discipline. We love our school!
It is a great school academic wise. I don't feel that all the teachers are of high quality. However, I've been fortunate to have wonderful teachers for my children. The school works hard to involve parents in various activities and to assist the children in growth and learning.
