Although this school has been many things, from the countless assignments, to a unique and different environment, this school was overall my home. Sure, it was a pretty small school, and everyone knew literally everyone, that was one of the good things about it. Everywhere you looked, you would be greeted by a friend, a smile, or even a bad joke. At first, I never really liked the school because it wasn’t what I was used to. But I’m thankful that I got to be apart of a place I can call my family!

I have had a very good experience at Lotus School for Excellence. The main thing that attracted me to this school was its diversity. I love that there are so many different nationalities and identities at this school. It's always interesting to hear and share stories. This school has made me much more aware of the world around me and how interconnected and beautiful it really is. I also really like the close-knit environment at this school. It is very easy to have a good relationship with teachers which makes things like recommendations much easier. There are also many activities to get involved in, and it's easier to have a say in school events and decisions because of the small size. The academics are also good as we have concurrent classes available.
Being a Student at Lotus School for Excellence for nine years, I've seen it all and so much growth. Within my time, I have experienced three principle changes and each came with different ideas and solutions that contributed to the school and the students. It's always growing and it's always finding a chance to be Excellent, just like within the school's name. The one and main factor I tend to favor is the diversity at Lotus. Everyone has adapted to change and different cultures and people because of it and bullying doesn't even exist because of the great diversity. And it's not just within the student body but the staff and teachers as well. Because of the diversity, student's don't tend to lose focus in their studies or their social life. They've found a balance with both just like I have.
