Throughout Plato Academy Schools, we have implemented a system of grouping students and staff into four teams, with members actively contributing to and competing on behalf of their respective teams. The core idea behind this initiative is to foster a sense of camaraderie and unity while rewarding and recognizing positive traits and behaviors among our students. Points are awarded to students for a wide range of qualities and actions that reflect our school’s values. These include demonstrating good character, achieving academic excellence, showing school spirit, delivering outstanding performances, displaying exceptional effort, emphasizing teamwork, practicing humility, expressing compassion, and taking responsibility for their actions. This approach not only encourages personal growth but also promotes a culture of mutual support and encouragement within our school community.
