Message from the Principal
Dear Plato Academy Family,

Plato Palm Harbor opened in the fall of 2010 and has grown to the current pre-K to 8th grade. Our family is more than half the size of a traditional public school which really helps the students succeed, not just academically, but also individually. As a school we focus on the whole child to help better prepare them for their young adult lives..

Academic excellence is critical and driven by a passionate and professional staff. We offer after school enrichment clubs, sports including flag football, basketball, JV and varsity soccer. Plato Academy Palm Harbor is supported by our PTO, local business partners, and most importantly our families. As a high performing charter school Plato Academy Palm Harbor succeeds at the highest levels while nurturing our students throughout the year. Go Thunderbolts!

“The Greece trip was the most amazing experience in my life. Everything I learned leading up to the trip was useful while I was there.” - Plato Academy Palm Harbor Student

“I value being part of a team of capable, passionate educators like myself. My colleagues are highly qualified. We collaborate with one another and help raise each other’s performance to the next level. We don’t think about tenure or how many years until retirement. We share one goal: Improve student performance.” - Plato Academy Palm Harbor Teacher
