Abstract: Lehner's 1949 results on the $ j$-invariant showed high divisibility of the function's coefficients by the primes $ p\in \{2,3,5,7\}$. Expanding his results, we examine a canonical basis for the space of level $ p$ modular functions holomorphic at the cusp 0. We show that the Fourier coefficients of these functions are often highly divisible by these same primes.
