Lusk National School was originally located beside the church of St. MacCullins. Over time, the small school became insufficient for the needs of the community. In 1955, a new four teacher, four classroom school was built at its current location on Chapel Road.
In 1981, the extension of the school began. The school is now a 28 classroom establishment with over 800 pupils who represent 36 different nationalities from around the world.
