Review Lusher Charter School
I have gone to Lusher since Kindergarten, and it's all I've ever known. That being said, I couldn't have asked for a better elementary, middle, and high school experience. Throughout the years I have made life long friends, and molded valuable relationships with teachers and coaches. Their core values of kindness, respect, hard work, and responsibility have helped me to become a better person. The diversity of the student body has helped me to become appreciative of all types of opinions and perspectives and has opened my eyes to subject matter and discussions I may have otherwise been oblivious to. My only complaint with Lusher is how much support they are willing to offer a student. I think that at times it is necessary to back off and a allow a student to struggle because in the end that struggle will benefit him/her down the road.
I had an awful experience in Lusher's middle school. I attended Lusher from 2013-2016. This school had no sense of unity. There were so many cliques in my grade that no one could step out of their comfort zone. The overall atmosphere with the students is just generally cold and unfriendly. At my new school, people walk down the hallways and actually greet me. Lusher was never like this.

Also, Lusher was constantly preaching about how it was a diverse school. I disagree completely. The school is predominately black and white so as an Asian person I never felt accounted for. They might claim that they are diverse due to one token Asian or Hispanic student, but if they are going to do that, they need to account for and validate these students rather than just using them as an excuse to say "We're diverse."
