    I am so happy with the teachers and staff at this school. My son is a new student there this year and I am so happy that we made the decision to move to the area. Their programs are geared toward all learners fast and slow advanced or behind. I am proud to say my son goes to Lotus!

    We love Lotus! My child started attending lotus this year after 3 years at a local private schol. We were extremely unhappy with the private school when it came to academics and their expectations of the teachers. I wish we would have switched to Lotus sooner! Both of my children's teachers are highly qualified and kind. My daughter is excited to go to school in the morning and I feel good about sending her to Lotus. I

    I am very happy with Lotus School. Both Administration and Staff are very dedicated to our children and learning. They have a great program in place and I see this school and district 114 only getting better in the future going from good to great! I urge parents to get involved with their child's school by volunteering PTA meetings and Board of Education meetings. Being in your child's classroom has a great affect on your child and its fun! I am saddened to see that there aren't more parents involved especially when the Staff and Administration are so welcoming of volunteers.

    This school makes me proud. They support every level of learning at this school. There are so many reading programs and math programs to keep all students on track in the class room. Above average or below average. The staff is supportived and friendly. We have great teachers. The school has a fun enviroment and parents are always welcome to be involved. Our computer lab and library are always updated. The school is also very clean.
