One word, Amazing! We have used all of the middle school science programs and one high school level. The programs are fun, thorough and effective. I would highly recommend this program.
Dyanne R., Co-op Member
The PLATO Physical science presented concepts with clarity. Our boys really liked the interactive nature of the presentation and we appreciated the step by step progression to solidify their foundation with the curriculum we were using. We plan to use it again this year.
C.West, Co-op Member
We bought both the life science and physical science for my children. Both we wonderful programs that exceeded what we expected. I would say if you are looking at either of these programs they are worth it.
M. Fletcher, Co-op Member
We have enjoyed using PLATO Life Science during our first year of homeschooling. We plan to complete Earth and Physical Science this year. It kept my electronically-inclined son quite engaged with its vivid and entertaining lectures. I appreciated its thorough content and mastery tests. I have recommended it to other homeschooling families.
Desiree D., Co-op Member
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 middle school science is a great curriculum. I especially appreciate the way it makes abstract topics understandable through the use of animation rather than 1 dimensional photos of a textbook. It has made my job much easier.
D. Maulding, Co-op Member
The earth science course was fantastic. I have been recommending it to all of my friends. It was informative, interactive, and entertaining. My boys wanted to do it everyday and were so exciting when it was their time slot and they could go online to learn more. We look at clouds differently now. They are no longer rain clouds, rather cumulonimbus clouds. My youngest stared drawing pillow lava in art class.
Olivia, Co-op Member
We use it to supplement our biology textbook and my son, who is 15, seems to like the way the information is presented. I would love a way to print tests out for records or to hand in to our charter school.
Jenny B., Co-op Member
I am just thrilled with the PLATO courses we've purchased through the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op. My younger child has been speeding through middle school life science, and my older homeschooler has been enjoying the high school level biology. The lessons are very comprehensive and presented in an engaging manner, but without gratuitous cartoon characters or goofy professors. We've also purchased subscriptions to two additional PLATO courses. It's an incredible value for the relatively small investment we made.
Lorel Shea, co-op member/ Gifted Education editor
I used the PLATO Earth&Space science program to supplement the science program that was a part of our homeschool curriculum for my 6th grader. All of the topics in the homeschool curriculum were covered by the PLATO program. The PLATO program went much deeper though. The PLATO program is great. It engages the learner with good graphics and audio presentation. It gives students the option to repeat small sections or to go deeper on one part of a topic or skip part with a click of the mouse.The program offers application activities that have the ...(more)
