Lusher Charter School


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 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 commands millions in scholarship funds for its graduates each year, Lusher still has something special for every child, whether that be engineering, creative writing, violin, chess, football or dance. 

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 the state’s only Ashoka Changemaker School, a school that creates innovators of the future by building a culture of empathy. From their very first days in kindergarten, students learn that the number one rule is to be kind, and this core value is deeply embedded throughout the K-12 program. 

Lusher students are happy, inquisitive, creative and caring. Attend our Open House so you can observe our students, our teachers and the strong bonds between them, which are at the foundation of a Lusher education. Come visit us and learn how your child can benefit from our unmatched program.
