Charles S. Rushe, their mascot the Raven, is a public middle/secondary school located in the Pasco County school district of Land O' Lakes, Florida. Their motto is "Home of the Ravens", and they were founded in 2007. The school itself is named after Charles S. Rushe, who funded much of the school's construction. The school is three stories tall and sits on the corner of Mentmore Boulevard and Sunlake Boulevard, directly adjacent to Sunlake High School, where the majority of its students go after they graduate. The school teaches grades 6-8, with supplementary schooling from the high school next door when necessary and available. It pulls students in from Oakstead Elementary School down the street, and has high ratings, with an "A" rating from the baseline in 2015 and continuously getting "A"s until their most recent evaluation in 2019. Their current principal is David Salerno and has been there since 2011. He has been in Pasco County for over 20 years, starting as a teacher in Pasco and moving his way up through the district and many schools in the county until becoming the principal at Charles S. Rushe, where he has been for almost ten years. The school has three stories, and the stories are each meant to house a specific grade level. Since the school teaches grades 6-8, the first floor is for 6th graders, the second story for 7th graders, and the third story for 8th graders, each grade with their own assistant principal that will follow the children as they go through middle school, so the assistant principal for 6th graders moves to 7th grade with them so they children can be the most comfortable with their assistant principal. The school also has its own basketball courts as well as a track and soccer field. While it does technically have a football field, since it is located directly next to Sunlake High School, the two share the field and so it does not technically "belong" to either one and the high school is generally scheduled for priority events. The cafeteria is located on the interior of the school, as is the gymnasium, which houses the basketball courts the school uses for its school team. All school teams are the "Ravens". Charles S. Rushe Middle School participates in Cheerleading, which has no specific teams, as well as; Volleyball, Soccer, and Basketball, all with a boys and girls team that play other boys and girls teams respectively within the district.
