Message from Mr. Idil, Executive Director

Greetings students, parents and community members,

As I begin my third school year as Executive Director of Lotus School for Excellence, we are eager to make a positive difference in the lives of our students. Our goal at LSE is to prepare all of our students for college with 21st century skills by setting high academic expectations for all students, increased standards for teacher performance, addressing school culture and engaging the community.

Working together, we can ensure that the students of LSE continue to achieve their highest potential. Your involvement and support is very important as we work to build and maintain our programs.

We are confident that this will be an exceptional school year and look forward to working with the staff and community to continue the LSE tradition of academic excellence!

It has been a great honor for me to be a part of the LSE family both as an educator and a parent. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Your feedback is very important for our continued success.

Eray Idil
Executive Director
