Message from the Principal
Dear Plato Academy Family,

I am proud to be part of such a wonderful group of educators, staff, students and parents. I started with Plato in 2010 opening the Palm Harbor campus as a second grade teacher. I worked in the public school system for ten years and very quickly noticed the difference of Plato Academy. I truly embrace the positive atmosphere and the desire for ALL students to be successful. We are a family working together for the best interest of all children.

Opening a school in Pinellas Park has been very exciting experience for me. I want to work together as a team with all stakeholders in your children’s education and lives. All students will be working on laptops and i-pads regularly. They will learn the Greek language in addition to their regular academic areas. It is my belief that all students can learn. It is our responsibility to figure out how each child learns. Welcome to our new family!!
