I am the daughter of an immigrant from a poor Central American country. Lusher exposed me to a school family composed of others that were both culturally and economically different from me and fostered friendships that have lasted 11 yrs post my 8th grade graduation. Lusher provided me with the education and good learning skills that facilitated my future graduation with a Master s from Tulane. As a person financially able to send my future children to any school in the city I would absolutely, unequivocally choose Lusher as the only option. I will always be grateful to Lusher.
My son tested to attend Lusher Elementary as a CWAS student and I am fortunate that he tested high enough to secure a high enough spot on the waiting list for Kindergarten. Thankfully we secured a spot and could not be happier. Lusher is both culturally and economically diverse and accurately reflects our society at large. I don't know why there are folks in the community claiming 'elitisms' about the school. This school should be a model for the majority of schools in Orleans Parish. The curriculum is arts and humanities strong with motivated teachers and very active parent group. Overall, I could not be more happy with the quality of education my son is receiving at Lusher. And as he recently asked his principal, when will Lusher High School begin??
Lusher is an incredible learning and social environment. It's racial balanace is about 50-50 which is a tremendous advantage for children. I have a hard time understanding the school's lilly white reputation. The school should be a model for all schools. Afterall it is consistenly the #1 ranked accademic public school in the state.
As an alumni of Lusher, I could not have hoped for a better school to attend. This school molded me into wanting to learn. the more i was taught the more i wanted, they provided me with an exceptional education to lead me to a quality high school... Thank you Lusher.
The teachers at this school really go beyond the call of duty to nurture kids and help them learn. We have top scores and happy kids. If a child is struggling, all you have to do is ask for help. The teachers bend over backward. There is also lots of parent involvement. You get to know the families there, plus have lots of ways to contribute to the school's success.
I am so happy to have grown up as a lusher student. I don't think it would be possible for a child to feel more secure, respected, or loved than lusher made me feel. Not only is it a beautiful, diverse, and encouraging environment, but I also got a great education. Five years after graduating from lusher, I realize what a huge impact it made on my life. I would urge every parent in the greater new orleans area to send their child to such a phenomenal school.
The teachers are great, I find to be very involved with the children as individuals. I love how the teachers take the time to get to know their students individual personalities and cater their teaching to the child's abilities and thus encourages the students educational growth.
Lusher is a great school for any child to attend, but it seems to me, that African-American students have a hard time being accepted into the school, as well as, staying enrolled in the school. I feel that the African-American children are not being treated fairly, academically, as the other ethnical groups of children. The mission of Lusher is not being practiced in the school system.
High expectations, extremely safe learning environment, multicultural atmosphere, many opportunities for enhanced learning beyond the classroom make this a great school!
