Purple Lotus Buddhist School 4

I was impressed by the cordial, friendly and respectful demeanor the students at this school showed. The campus does not offer fancy equipment, but I firmly believe the success of student lies in his teachers, and not so much in the new books or state-of-the-art facility, and definitely not an arm and an leg tuition. I also agree with the school in offering organic only meals. I've searched many private schools, and even though their response to not offering meals in house is "because there are some students who might be allergic to certain food" I think the reason is the schools wants to squeeze profits. Purple Lotus School feeds their students with organic meals that is included in the tuition. A good school should not avoid serving the students meals because some students might be allergic to it, but rather find a way to provide the students with food that will be in the best nterest of the students, not in profit or convenience. If you're only looking for your child to excel in academically in what money can buy, then this may not be the best choice. If your priority in your child's future includes good education as well as cultivating good character and virtues in him, then this is the school to be.

Based on the success of its graduates to top tier colleges, I believe this school successfully train its students to be persistence and determined, but wisely.

Respect is one of the unwritten doctrines that this school emphasis to the students regularly in their thoughts, actions, and relationship with the self and others.

I think due to its small size, staff members and students share a trusted bond academically as well as spiritually (though not all students or staff are Buddhist).

Purple Lotus School offers a unique program that cannot be matched by any other local program. While the school is small they offer a self paced learning path that incorporates self discipline and character building. The students truly care about each other and their community making the school a special environment. If you are a parent that likes to stay informed and involved in your child's educational program you will enjoy working with the dedicated and nurturing staff. The after school program offers a wide range of activities from cooking, MMA and dancing of various types.

Our eager third grader loves to go to school. Why, because Purple Lotus School (PLS) is a private Buddhist school that offers a unique educational program that goes beyond the state requirements. They focus on the qualities of being a good human being and helping the community while caring for each student s individual needs. Our student enjoys the Small classroom sizes (K-12th) Advance academics, especially science and math The teaching of Buddhism Learning Mandarin Chinese The social network of teachers and students in all grades. Everyone cares about each other and the older students are very nice to the younger students. As parents we are so pleased with the PLS program and the personal growth of our child that she will have way beyond her schooling years.

This school just isn't as good. It's basically the same as independent study. Teacher's hardly ever teach and there are literally no co-curricular activities on campus.
