this school says a lot and shows a lot, but in reality it is not a very good school at all. the administration is not fair with all the kids & doesnt treat all the kids equally.The principal has very little invovlement with the elementary kids. Many of the teachers are unhappy and are treated poorly by adminstration with very little lack of appreciaition (ive been told by 4 teachers). The tests the kids take to measure the growth is not even colorado certified. over the last two years the good teachers have left the school becasue the admin does not recognize or appreciate or treat them fairly and the school is left with inexpeirenced and lazy teachers. this is why i am taking my children out of the school. i do not want teachers who arn't licensed or have very little experience in the field teaching my child. the school does not have a full sized gym, & the building has not been updated with things falling apart. this school does not have small class size either. 24-26 students is not small class size crammed in little rooms. the school and admin puts on a good show, but in reality they are not a true school with all staff truly focused on the children & academics.
lotus school for excellence is a great school it give you a chance to b great in the future This school is unlike a regular school a public school doesn't work with you so you can pass your class they tell you if you want to pass do it yourself but lotus teachers work with you to pass your classes. lotus school for excellence is a great school to send your child to grow and learn to be a better adult in the future.
Lotus School for Excellence is on the top of my list! My grandsons have attended this school, one since 6th grade (9th grade now). The educational structure of LSE is why my grandsons are intellectually seeking more knowledge from their teachers daily. They challenges to learn more about the world have made them both exceptional academic students. The faculty and staff of LSE care about the students, the parents, and enabling their student body to become future leaders of the community and America! I thank them daily for their commitment and dedication. Barb Whitfield
Lotus is an ever emerging school K-12 school. Certainly appreciate the emphasis in Math and Science. Since all of the students wear uniform shirts/blouses there is little to no peer pressure regarding dress. There is little to non-existent dicipline problems. Recommend this school for you child.
I am a student attending LSE, I've been at this school since it first opened back in 2005, I started in 6th grade and now I am in 11th, the school is actually really amazing, its multicultural and everyone is like family because of the small classroom sizes. The teachers are completely involved with students and even make time to help them afterschool, which is appriciated by many. Also because we have small classroom sizes (most being 24) each student gets individual help from teachers when it is needed. From the first year this school opened and til' now a lot of improvments have happened. We're getting sports teams, MESA, and have camps that students can go too, yearly talent shows that are a blast, bulling is absolutly not tolerated and every student feels welcomed. My whole class loves going to this school, we believe that it will be really good for our future. Thank you to all the teachers and staff at LSE, you're all appriciated. :)
Lotus is a terrible school with mediocre staff and lousy teachers. There is rarely enough food for all the students at lunch and the administration abuses their power to punish students that they don't like. They even kept a teacher around that was accused multiple times of inappropriate behavior around students. They may say that they rise above other schools but that is just an illusion, they spend more money on advertising and bringing in new students then they do actually improving the school. You don't know what's happening to your kid there, so it would be a good idea to steer clear
Great educational opportunity awaits you! Math has a strong emphasis here, so go for it!
I was a student at Lotus in 2006-07. I am now a sophomore in high school, I went to LSE of 6 months, and I loathed it. Nothing that i learned there I remembered, I had 4 hours of homework every night, (IN SIXTH GRADE!!! In high school i have barely and hour of homework a night if any) They do NOT have two gyms, Or a great kitchen, And the "cafeteria" is a Stage. If you value your child's happiness as well as their education, do not send them here.
From what I can tell in the reviews before me, parents and students alike are not familiar with the more international approach to teaching that Lotus provides. Students may complain about the rules at first, but they do come around. I have been going to Lotus since I was in 8th grade, I am now a senior graduating with the inaugural class of Lotus School and I can easily say that my experience at Lotus has changed me. I went from being a troubled, misguided youth in 8th grade (I was frequently in the dean's office) to the valedictorian of my grade and example of the Lotus student molding process. If you child is a good student, not necessarily brilliant, but one who is willing to learn, Lotus is a good school. If your child shows inclination towards the academia and/or is very curious/precocious then Lotus is a good fit because the teachers can easily recognize their ability and adjust accordingly. Test scores and academic progress have been well noted in recent years at Lotus, and considering the United States recent drop among other well-known countries (in terms of education) this is a good sign for the future. All in all, Lotus is a unique and wonderful school.
I like the school because Learning is promoted as the most important reason for attending the school.
My Son went to this school and he loves it.I will asure you that you're child will love this school.The teachers are great and will let you know if you're child needs any help.
My daughter love Lotus, both her grades and behavior have greatly improved. She enjoys the after school clubs and the teachers are outstanding!!
I am a student at Lotus and I am in 7th grade. I like this school because it is a challenge. The teachers answer any questions we have, they offer free tutoring to help you succeed. There are lots of fun clubs and activities you can do. Not a bunch of kids to crowd the hallways. The teachers are nice and helpful.
very bad for childern students are not allow to go during class in there first four periods and if they do leave classroom then they get in trouble school needs to learn how not to abuse the rules
I am a student of this school and you may not care what i have to say because the child going to a school is always complaining about it but PLEASE listen to a students words because parents drop their kid off and don't know what torture they go through but a student in the school knows what is going on form the INSIDE. From my point of view when you first hear of this school they will try to win you over with all the things like computers a tv in the front of the school and let me be the first to tell you that they are feeding you lies about them caring about the education of their students. To keep you from dissapointment from this school PLEAS STAY AWAY! Take my work for it.
The school is one of the safest school in the neighborhood. It has been a great experience for us. After-school and weekend tutoring are very good opportunity in order to get extra help for missing class-work. They recently started their ACT/SAT classes at the weekends. In addition to these, class size is small so every child gets enough attention he/she needs during the class time. I would strongly recommend the school to everyone as a parent.
I am a parent of the Lotus School for Excellence`s student. Our mother language is Turkish. We have been in USA for only one year. My son got the advanced levels of English and science and math in the Lotus. Thank you so much the school administration and teachers of Lotus.
If you like a safe, small, and disciplined school with dedicated teachers, this is the school to choose. Higly recommended.
The school has been a great experience for my child. School goes above and beyond to help students. Free tutoring is amazing. Teachers spend so much time with kids outside of their class time. Math placement gives my child great opportunity to be challenged appropriately. They recently started their ACT/SAT classes at the weekends. Class size is very small so my child get the attention he needs. I would recommend the school to everyone.
For middle school this school may be alright but for high school students it is not a good way to go. It does not offer extra activities to keep someone interested and the ones they do offer they expect 15 year olds to hang with 11 year olds not a good combination.Athletic minded students this is also not the place to be. Also some of the teachers were not accessable to me when I needed help and were not clear. Lunch was expensive and also not so good as they changed the program last year and next year they are going to add elementary kids which is amazing when they can not handle what they have got. Not a good idea and would not recomend this school.
