I love it, I’m challenged academically and individually, and have made long-lasting bonds and memories. Although the elementary struggles with diversity, the middle and high school are full of it. The student life is... something else. I like this though, we're smart but almost always in some sort of ridiculous situation. Some moonwalk down the hallway, scaring touring parents, accidentally drop their spare underwear on the football field, surf down the hallway on ketchup packets, witness substitutes lose class pets, or leave milk trails around the school. At one point, we only had one security guard, a wide-open football field gate, and one nurse, who shifted between schools throughout the week, and we enjoyed it. We could pull shenanigans then and now. At the elementary location, the disciplinary precautions were silly, but after "disciplining" to no avail, they changed (thank c/o 2022). The dress code is "sexist" but be lowkey and you'll slide, plus no one cares anymore.

I would rate my overall experience with Lusher Charter School as five out of five stars. I've been attending Lusher Charter School since first grade and the students there are treated like family. The education is great and I learn so many new and interesting things. The teachers are understanding and pleasant. They are willing to help you with homework and studying for their assessments. Sure, there are times where students are disciplined, but the faculty treats them with the upmost respect. There are great Certificate of Artistry Programs for students who want to focus more on what they're interested in. You build great relationships with the people you meet as well.
This school is absolutely amazing! The community is great and so are the classes! The teachers love what they do and it really affects the classes, they make learning fun and interesting. The whole community too is so supportive of each other, I've never been in a place like this that cares so much about one another!
