    Thank you for your interest in Lusher Charter School. We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about Lusher’s highly recognized K-12 program.

    Lusher students are engaged, inquisitive, creative and caring

    Lusher has mastered the challenge of balancing a high academic program with student well-being. At the center of this balance is the school’s focus on student interests and talents. The school believes strongly in the power of combining both critical thinking skills and creativity to prepare its students for a successful academic future and to help them develop and grow into adulthood. All students from K-12 are offered a superior arts program that includes all of the art forms. Lusher also offers an outstanding athletic program in grades 6-12.

    With an excellent academic program that earns millions of dollars in scholarship funds for its graduates each year, Lusher has something special for every child, whether that be engineering, creative writing, violin, chess, football or dance.

    Kindness, hard work, responsibility and respect

    A key tenet of Lusher culture is Project Pride, which emphasizes the core values of kindness, hard work, responsibility and respect. It is this understanding that has led to state recognition as a top performing school and as one of just two Louisiana Ashoka Changemaker schools. Changemaker schools create innovators of the future by building a culture of empathy. From their very first days in kindergarten, Lusher students learn that the number one rule is to be kind, and this core value is deeply embedded throughout the K-12 program.

    Lusher Charter School has been designated a 2016-2018 Exemplary School by Arts Schools Network, the nation’s largest professional membership organization of specialized arts schools. Created to highlight a school’s commitment to excellence, this designation is presented to an Arts Schools Network member school in recognition of its efforts to evaluate strategically its purpose, operations and educational programs. This honor signifies that Lusher Charter School has successfully completed a self-evaluation in the following areas: strengths, areas for improvement, consistency with school-wide or program purposes, aspirations and future challenges.
