Lusher Charter School lower school campus; it has a Kindergarten-only attendance boundary covering sections of East Carrollton but it will end in 2017

Students are able to attend Orleans Parish School Board schools.

Lusher Charter School, a K-12 public charter school, has an elementary school-only attendance boundary that includes much of East Carrollton.[5] The Greater New Orleans Collaborative of Charter Schools director, Ken Ducote, stated that this boundary may have been established after public schools in New Orleans were desegregated. The attendance boundary was preserved because parents and employees voted to make Lusher a charter school just prior to the hurricane's arrival. All of the other New Orleans schools lost their attendance boundaries after Katrina hit New Orleans. In the post-Katrina period the attendance area, previously economically mixed, became wealthier.[6] On September 10, 2015 the Orleans Parish School Board voted to end Lusher's attendance boundary effective fall 2017.[7]
