PLATO has made a huge difference in our daily science adventures. The program makes science jump off the page and brings this very important subject to life. No more 2 dimensional boring textbooks for us! The kids love the pictures and the interactive nature of the lessons, I love the organized manner in which the curriculum is presented. It makes learning easy. Thanks so much for allowing us to participate in this program! I hope this will be available to us for many years to come!

I signed up my daughter, 9, for the Plato Middle School Sciences and she has really been enjoying it very much. She has been working on Earth Science but has access to Life and Space (?) as well. The interactive lessons hold her interest and I like that there is an application and practice tests leading up to the mastery test. She loves that she can be autonomous and review as much or as little as needed. I would recommend this to anyone whose child is interested in science.

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!
Linda B.,
Plato Middle School science courses have been just right for our current homeschooling needs. Our son is able to watch the lectures and complete the questions with minimal reading, keeping him grade level in science and freeing me up to spend extra time tutoring him in language arts.

My daughter has become interested and knowledgeable in chemistry thanks to Plato Science. It allowed her to learn at her own pace and stretch her mind. Not being well versed in science, I could not have taught this subject to her. I am glad you offered this science program at a price we could afford. We are definitely considering using Plato Science in the future.

Thanks for offering so many options to homeschoolers.

My sons have enjoyed the Plato science program for over 4 yrs. They are extremely helpful to me because they engage them in a simulated, hands on way, on a regular basis, which has been a challenge for me to do consistently myself. They remember what they learn and they enjoy the lessons and challenges. I like how they aren't just memorizing facts but they are trying and experimenting for themselves. It is very comprehensive and thorough. I have given my kids the opportunity to choose their own science program and they chose Plato, hands dow...(more)

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)

We are using the high school level Physical Science course. It's both comprehensive and enjoyable. The interative video keeps our son's interest and he is really learning. The automatic gradebook is wonderful. I don't have to do anything, but print out his grades. My son has a strong science background, so he is able to complete this entirely on his own. Yes, we will continue to use this. If your child is weak in science, they may need assistance with a few parts of this course (balancing chemical equations, molecular structure). Otherwise, thi...(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
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)
