My 2 girls were very pleased with the Plato Science middle school modules. They each did all 3 modules in about a semester as they were on the older end of middle school at the time.

Then they moved on to the high school sciences. As a parent, I was more impressed with the Biology than with the Chemistry. Biology was an extremely complete course of study. The student study guides were a valuable resource. My daughter followed along and took notes in the study guide, and I think her retention of the material was much better.

My older ...(more)

Plato Science (we are doing the Physical Science program and previously did the Geology program) has enabled us to have an intelligent, clearly explained course in science for middle school that helps me teach my son subjects that have changed significantly since I was a kid. My son has to work, take notes, and respond while we are working on the course. I have not tried other courses because I liked Plato very much the first time we tried it. That time we used it as an adjunct to a course and this time we are using it alone since the Plato cou...(more)

We give homeschooling to our children and PLATO-Leaning is a success story. Our oldest son who is in 9th grade is using the curriculum of PLATO-Physics. He is learning with enthusiasm and at his own pace. We will definitely continue to use PLATO-Leaning.

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)

My 8-year-old son did the Plato Science series. To be sure, he has an aptitude for science, but equally clear is that he is still a child and susceptible to frustration when something is not clear or accessible. Aside from occasional software glitches, however, we had no complaints--my son found them consistently enjoyable and rewarding.
The presentation of material was well organized, clear and engaging, with well-timed reviews and reinforcements of key concepts. For younger students, it also helps that the student's progress is visual...(more)

Plato Science is a fantastic program. My ds has used all of the Middle School level programs and is currently fininshing the High School level Biology program. The program presents rigorous, comprehensive science materials in an interactive fashion. My son loves science, so we used all kinds of resources until we, happily, stumbled upon the Plato program. I recommend Plato science to every person who is looking for a good science program for their kids. We loved Plato science so much that this year we are using Plato's comprehensive program. My...(more)

I am a curriculum junkie, so I've taken a look at a lot of science curricula. Plato/CyberEd has the best coverage of middle school science topics I've seen, and the kids love it. I can't recommend it highly enough. We can't wait to try the high school courses by Plato/CyberEd!

The Plato Earth Science has been a joy to use. My 12yr old reluctant learner and I enjoy the heavy use of visuals. I am also using it as a method to teach him note taking skills. He has never learned this crucial skill. So, I preview the material and create an outline with simple key points for him to fill in. I also list the screen number the information can be found on. That way he can back up and fill in anything he misses. I find computer learning allows him to take ownership of his education more so than other styles of learning because h...(more)

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.

I have 3 very active boys and was pleased to see them drift in one by one (along with a friend) and stop to watch the tutorial on volcanoes. They kept asking mr to keep going. This was a first-class interactive, fun & informative program. Worth every penny!
