Willow Campus


H
ousing grades K-5, Lusher Charter School's Willow Campus has been the home of Lusher Elementary School since its founding in 1917. Under a canopy of oaks, children gather each morning in the yard for a school-wide Morning Meeting of performances and announcements. The community-oriented Morning Meeting - a diverse gathering of students, parents, grandparents, faculty, and administration - sets a child-centered tone of inclusion and celebration of diversity that permeates the building. At the top of the entrance stairs is a grand gallery surrounded by the library, classrooms, and administrative suite. Parents often gather in the gallery to check in with teachers and staff, volunteer in classrooms, or put together the weekly Lusher Letter.

The nearly 50,000 square foot facility includes 33 classrooms, a library/media center, a full cafeteria, studio space and offices. Lusher Charter School's annual Crawfish Boil is hosted on the grounds of the Willow Campus each spring, and serves as a celebration of the whole Lusher community.
