I've used this product with all 4 of our homeschooled children during upper elementary and middle school. The courses keep the kids engaged and their retention rate is fairly high. I would recommend this as a good basis for high school science. A high school level would be a great addition.
Karen, Co-op Member
At my house, we love PLATO. My son, only starting 5th grade, but excelling in science, is able to work independently on his science without becoming the slightest bit distracted (an amazing feat). The format is phenomenal with its interactive lessons and follow up tests. He rarely had to repeat a lesson (less than 85%-my standard for him). That's a huge testiment to the presentation style. Further, he completed all the sciences available (except chemistry) within a year's time. Not praise for my son (although very good) but rather: a program th...(more)
Cyndi F., Co-op Member
My girls look forward to Plato. It is a secular science program. However, we feel it is so well-done and enjoyable that we "tune-out" the billions of years ago statements. Plato gets an A+! We conquer the mastery tests online and then we do the paper tests. It's challenging and yet very palatable. It keeps my girls' attention who need to learn using the auditory senses. It's a superior science program.
Pam S., Co-op Member
My son is a big science fan and this is the first program he has taken that has kept him engaged and challenged. He likes that it is self-paced and he can do as much or as little as his time and interest allow. I like it because it is easy to see his progression and where he needs extra work. The mix of online and offline activities is important to get the complete experience. We have tried other science programs, but they either required way too much prep time for me, moved too slowly or were at a level that was inappropriate for a whip-smart ...(more)

We had more than one course during the year and we enjoyed the Earth/Space class as well as the biology. We were able to go over alot of material and have much reinforcement from the applications section. Great program! My daughter enjoyed it and learned alot.
Celia G., Co-op Member
We have used: Switched-On, Apologia, and Real Science 4 kids.

My daughter is currently using Plato-Learning and loves it! She has commented on how much she enjoys the high-quality animation. It seems to be both effective and entertaining.

I have a strong scientific background, and I am impressed with this program. I would highly recommend it!

Drawbacks? Access only during alloted time slots. [Editor's Note: 24 hour subscription options are available.] Lack of hands-on labs (you may want to supplement, but we are very content...(more)

We are using PLATO- Learning for Science this year. We love the course. It is very informative and interactive. The course is challenging but not overwhelming. We are doing Earth and Space Science this year. I hope to continue with it the other courses throughout middle school.
D. Hobson, Co-op Member
PLATO is an excellent program. I love the format, the thoroughness, the interactive activities, and the fact that you can pause or repeat as necessary. The testing at the end of each lesson ensures understanding of the material.
Andrea H., Co-op Member
This is a wonderful supplement/enrichment to our virtual academy curriculum. It works nicely providing more detail and depth for both science and health courses. If you're on a budget, I'd recommend utilizing the 24 hour window and limiting to one or two subjects.
Kandice Mulry, Co-op Member
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

GREAT JOB SECURING THE PLATO SCIENCE CURRICULUM. I THINK IT IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST PROGRAM AROUND BUT IT WAS NOT AVAILABLE TO ME UNTIL NOW.

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
