Student Population

The Lotus School serves secondary school students grades (9-12.) These are students who will flourish in what a small learning community offers: a low student/teacher ratio, deep connection with their teachers and what they study, and a rigorous education that emphasizes experience over rote learning. Small class size and experienced teachers can meet students’ needs for challenge and support. Students who are not challenged enough in a large school and want what a smaller more intimate classroom culture offers do very well at Lotus.

Traditionally, we have served high school students from the Bucks County area who have become lost in their public school and have begun to have significant difficulties socially, academically and/or emotionally. Other students come from private school settings where the goals are academic, but the program itself is unable to meet the social and emotional needs of the child. In terms of general demographics, our students come from a wide variety of socioeconomic, educational settings, religion/faith, suburban and rural areas.

LSLA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status or disability (in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act).
