Open Quote This school used to be very good, however, it has really gone downhill. I have a child in middle school and one in elementary school. It's only October and we've already lost 4 middle school teachers. And this is a school with only 2 classes per grade level! Bullying is dealt with in a rote manner, with nothing really being done. If you complain enough (in writing of course) they'll do something. We've had bullying issues for the past 3 years. Some of the bullying was significant including threats of violence and the worst type of name calling from a boy to a girl. There is one after care teacher that tells the students regularly about how many mental health therapists he has and seems like the last person you'd want overseeing an after school program. A fantastic math teacher was run out of the school because he supposedly yelled at a student. I'm not sure if he did or not, but this was hands down the best math teacher I have ever had the privilege to work with- during my time in school and during my 4 kids' time at school. I have little hope that my child's middle school year will cover everything that is supposed to be learned due to the high turnover. Also, the head and really the heart of Plato Academy Schools, Mr. Christopoulos, unexpectedly passed away this year. I think this will only make matters worse, at least at our school. It's so chaotic and again there are only two classes per grade level! Also, tiny sports program with only street hockey and flag football, coached by volunteer dads with no emphasis on real sports performance. So, not good for kids who want to play sports at a high level in high school. Poor playground equipment for the little ones and campus could definitely use some security updates. We used to really love Plato but now we (and our kids) can't wait to get out. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
