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
My 10 year old son has really enjoyed the Plato Life Sciences online course. Even though it can be very hard to hold his attention for any period of time, I've had no trouble with this program. That could be partly because it is online, partly because he can go at his own speed, but also because he enjoys the content and presentation. I did wonder if it might be too advanced for him, but clearly the course presenters understand kids capabilities very well. I rarely have to actively supervise while he's following the program, and you gotta lo...(more)

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)

My son enjoys the program and that's half the battle when learning. The graphics and applications really help the information come alive and stay with you. It is very thorough also. I have no hesitation in choosing Plato Science programs for all 4 years of high school.

This is our second year using the PLATO online science program purchased through the Homeschool Buyers Co-op and my boys both love it! We could not afford (as a one income family) to use this curriculum if it were not for the great pricing offered to us through the co-op. We would be sorely disappointed if we had to now look for something else for next year, as we finally believed we had found the one to carry us through all the way 12th grade with both our sons. We love this program and hope it will still be available to us through the Homesch...(more)

My ten year old used PLATO Earth Science this past year. We both found it engaging and fun yet packed with challenging content. He worked independently most of the year. I think this would be considered a bit much for many kids this age but we went into it knowing ahead of time it would stretch my son. We were both pleased when he got a 70% or so on the tests. We were thrilled when he got a 100% on at least one test. Even my five year old loved to cuddle up next to his brother to see the lessons. I would recommend this program for motivate...(more)

This year, I did all the lessons for three PLATO subjects: Earth Science, Physical Science, and Life Science. I really enjoyed them, and I think I learned a lot from them. They were more interesting than a text book, though not same as actually testing a hypothesis with a person in a lab. But I really enjoyed the graphics, and my parents liked the program, too. I appreciated the convenient features of this system, including the jump menu, calculator, and glossary.
J. J. M. Braulick, Co-op Member
PLATO is the best homeschool curriculum my daughter and I have ever used! I tell everyone about it. The coursework is so engaging and easy to use. All of the coursework can be done at a pace that works for the student, and for my daughter who lives with the challenges of Autism, this makes a world of difference. The wonderful visuals make learning (and teaching) so much easier and so much more fun! And I find that my daughter retains so much more. Please don't ever stop carrying PLATO, it's the most affordable, effective program we've eve...(more)

I bought three of the PLATO programs during the first group buy,physical,life and earth and space, for my sons ages 10 and 12. We were unable to complete all three during the year and I am participating in the current buy. We were pleasantly surprised to find the programs are so thorough and in-depth. I will not say that my kids love these programs and beg to do them because that is not the case. Instead I will share with you what my 10 year old recently said about the programs. "They're not my favorite and it takes a lot of time to do it but I...(more)

This past year, my daughter completed the PLATO Life Science course. She really enjoyed it, and finished the course quite quickly. She and a friend would often discuss what they learned on PLATO, and she seemed to have a very good grasp of the basics involved. It took teaching science basics off my plate, and allowed her to do some self-guided learning. I am thrilled that we will have access to this program again, and look forward to doing the physical science this upcoming year.
