Embark on the Journey of Knowledge, Be an Argonaut of Wisdom!
“True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.”
Dear Plato Academy Families,
It is with great excitement and pride that I extend a warm welcome to all of you for the 2023-2024 school year. As the Principal of Plato Academy Pinellas Park, I am honored to lead this remarkable community and partner with you in your child’s educational journey.
At Plato Academy, we firmly believe that education is a collaborative effort between the school, parents, and students. This strong partnership forms the foundation for a successful and enriching learning experience. Together, we can create an environment that nurtures our students, instills a love for knowledge, and equips them with the skills and values they need to excel in all facets of life. Our dedicated team of educators is committed to providing a holistic education that goes beyond academics. We strive to cultivate curiosity, critical thinking, creativity, and character development in our students. Our goal is to empower them to become responsible global citizens who contribute positively to their communities.
As we embark on this new school year, let us work hand in hand to provide the best possible education and support for our students.
I want to express my gratitude to all the parents and guardians for entrusting us with your child’s education. Your support and active involvement are vital to their success, and we value the partnership we have with each of you.
The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a volunteer organization dedicated to the successful education of our children. We work hard to create a warm, welcoming, and inclusive community to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents.
