Plato Academy is a charter school being offered to the public as one choice. Parents have the choice of many other charter schools, fundamentals, magnets, local public schools, or private schools. I am glad I had Plato as a choice. Believe me, I looked into all of the above for my kids. Plato has opened its doors to all children and strives to meet the needs of those students, low performing, average, and gifted, regardless of federal mandates. Plato consistently asks, "What do the kids need?" If it's tutoring, they get it. If it's enrichment, they get it. This happens in the classroom and via pull out services. Plato consistently asks, "How do we make learning fun?" The scores show the quality of the learning. Thank you to Plato, the staff and faculty, the Assistant Principal, Principal, and Superintendent, many of whom have their children at this school and are committed on a personal level in addition to a professional level. Thank you to the students who work hard, and families who work hard at home to make the learning happen. Anyone who disagrees with this assessment of the school, please consider your other options.
