Dear Plato Academy Family,
Tarpon Springs has always meant community to me. Tarpon Springs and its culture welcomed me as a young person in the simplest of ways: a Greek dance troupe named Levendia. The rich and deep history and culture this group offered me, and generation of others, was largely in part due to one director. He took a personal passion and offered it to the youth in the community. A large part of my identity formed through those experiences and the time I spend in Tarpon Springs.

I entered the field of education to give to students what I had been given growing up: a superior education, culture, and enrichment. In 2007, I was given the opportunity to join the faculty of Plato Academy Clearwater. I remember thinking that teaching at Plato Academy was the opportunity that connected all the important threads of my life, teaching, Greek culture, and a wonderful school for my children. I was even more thrilled when I was presented with the opportunity to open a Plato Academy in Tarpon Springs, a city that had offered me so much. It was a chance to take my passion and give back to the youth of Tarpon Springs.

As the leader of Plato Academy Tarpon Springs, I hope to give back in very specific ways. Each day, the entire faculty and staff at Plato Academy Tarpon Springs works diligently to enact our mission: 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.

It is my intention that Plato Academy Tarpon Springs is on a path of establishing itself as a pillar of the Tarpon Springs community. As Plato Academy Tarpon Springs completes its 6th year, offering a superior academic program that nurtures and develops the whole child, I hope that our work has only just begun. We look forward to educating, guiding, developing and enriching the future generations of Tarpon Springs and surrounding communities.

In Partnership,

Danielle Turro, Principal
