Counselor's Corner
The counselors at George Bush High School presented Academic Excellence Awards Night November 15, 2017. It was an excellent turn-out for our parents and students to share this prestigious event.

Bush High School Counselors also presented to the staff, students, and parents a Wall of Gratitude” . Composed by students with their love ones in mind.

AP Exams are just around the corner and taking the Advanced Placement Exams is an important part of all AP courses. George Bush High School desires that all students take AP Exams for the AP classes that they are taking. Scoring well on an AP Exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition. More information can be found here , in regards to registration.
