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.
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.
