Lusher Charter School Reviews

Lusher is by no means a horrible school. I agree that it is the best in Louisiana, but that's not exactly an incredible accomplishment to me. The drug problem at this school is insane. There are freshmen who do cocaine and every single girl I know here smokes weed. Girls snort adderall in the bathrooms. I witnessed this firsthand along with many strange and racist microaggressions. I believe that Lusher needs to quit preaching and cheating the system, and put money into what matters. Their school lunches are disgusting, plain unhealthy. A school whose CEO gets 250k a year should prioritize the physical wellbeing of their students more; and some requirements are obviously ploys for money. The gym uniform costs 80 dollars. The art class is 400 for materials, despite the art students sharing crayola pallets. Lusher can do better and not be so obviously for profit. Their diversity is pathetic compared to other schools in the state, quite obviously picking white students. Do better.

Lusher offers a friendliness in diversity that you can't find elsewhere. The students are encouraged to be themselves while excelling in arts and academics. The staff at Lusher, especially Principal Corbett, are changing the student-teacher dynamic for the better!
I've attended Lusher since Kindergarten I'm a "Lusher Lifer", which is a great honor. I love the family atmosphere. Students grow with the teachers and staff just like we do with our families. Lusher affords many opportunities that I wouldn't have received from other public schools. The criteria for learning surpass the average school, we're required deepen our understanding of subjects we're challenged with. There's a great support system by means of after school hours with teachers and college students who volunteer to tutor. I love the Creative Arts and Sports programs. I learned to play guitar and the saxophone. I received a CA Certification. I've played football and was on the basketball team for the last two years. One thing I would change at Lusher is that I would have taken advantage of other opportunities. I wish for a complied list of things available so that no student misses an opportunity. In the end, Lusher was the best choice that my parents could have made for me.
