Our Story

Lotus first became operational during 2006-2007 school year and enrolled a total of 147 students to grades 6 and 7. Each year after that, its enrollment increased gradually to finally reach almost 900 students, with grades spanning from Kindergarten to 12th grade. In such a diverse and disadvantaged community, for over a decade, Lotus has managed to instill interest in students in the areas of Science, Technology, Mathematics, Arts, and Engineering. Today it is one of the most successful schools in the community.
