School Code of Conduct
Although school rules target specific areas of behavior, our Code of Conduct defines a wider, more general ethical standard based on our core philosophy.
Lotus Valley International School inculcates, and expects, an attitude of integrity from its students. It is part of our philosophy that all individuals in our community are treated with respect. Students should adopt and maintain a caring and helpful attitude, showing due respect for everyone. Every Lotus Valley student should be an asset to the school, a source of pride for their family and a person who earns, and gives, respect in all dealings with others.
GUARDIANS TO KINDLY
