Plato school is located in a small, friendly community where traditional family and American values are still taught. The school has caring educators and faculty members. Teachers at Plato school facilitate a comfortable and safe environment condusive to learning. The school is community oriented and convieniently located. Basic discipline, standards and values are upheld in an environment where God can still be talked about without fear of a liberalist backlash.

Plato school has caring, hardworking, determined faculty members. Plato school has a great curriculm for the students. Plato school has a great atmosphere for the student to be in. I have personally went to both plato school and licking school and plato is a better school. The teachers at plato are excellent.

I would like to take back my recent statements about Plato because it is actually a beautiful school. And has great wonderful teachers there. Who not only educate my children but also care about them and there futures.

I am a mother of 7 and and 4 of my kids have been attending plato for the past 4 years. Putting asside the oldness of the buildings, and the food, the teachers and staff at plato care for everyone there. I would rate this school a 7 based on the people working there and how the teachers love the kids and want the best for the kids. I also like that the school still has biblical values and is open to my kids talking about God!!! There is not many schools like that that are left.

As a student of Plato Middle School, I believe that this facility is unsatifactory. The outdated textbooks, the lack of money, the plumbing (oh, yeah. It's that bad.)! There is not enough room for the students, and the curriculum does not fit the pupil's needs. This school would not be my first choice. ~Girl
