– Plato, Greek Philosopher
Students also participate in an annual student art exhibit in which they have the opportunity to showcase their talents and creativity to family and friends.
Our philosophy encourages children to experience music on many levels. This includes speech/chants, movement, singing, drama, and playing pitched instruments. We begin recorder instruction in first grade and supplement with a mixed set of soprano, alto, and bass xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiels. Before the students use mallets, we practice helpful exercises using body percussion.
The mission of Plato Academy Charter Schools is to assist students in achieving their full potential by requiring and nurturing high academic and behavioral standards in a safe, supporting, challenging and enthusiastic environment fostered by a commitment and cooperative effort between the school, students, parents, and community.
Plato Academy Schools are all fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and schools as managed by AdvancED. SACS provides nationally recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet SACS CASI’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
