                                                                                                   Plato's Mission:
                                      To work collaboratively, think critically, and achieve academically in order to promote and
                                                           nurture a community of life-long learners for tomorrow's global society.



    Welcome to Plato Learning Academy’s website.  We are a school committed to working collaboratively, thinking critically and achieving academically.  Plato Learning Academy is a contract school managed by American Quality Schools.

    At Plato Academy we strive for excellence.  As we strive for excellence, I am committed to every child who graduates from our school being prepared for a selective enrollment high school and then attending a college or university.  I believe that our children can and will have academic success.

    We hope that you will work collaboratively with us by ensuring that your student is ready for instruction daily.  A Plato student will be on time, ready to learn and display the 6 pillars of character.   

    Every Wednesday we dismiss early so that our staff can engage in ongoing professional development, reflection, data analysis, and collaboration to enhance our practice so that we can deliver high quality standards based instruction to each child.

    You can be assured that as our students are reciting the following creed every morning, we are doing our best to ensure that they live up to this creed and we appreciate your partnering with us.

    “We, the students of Plato Learning Academy, are making a commitment to our community.  We will respect teachers, staff and fellow students.  Every day, we promise to do our best to reach our goals, to prepare us for a bright future as lifelong learners.” 

Educationally yours,

Dr. Vanesa Thompson
