Plato High School Reviews
My first impression of Plato High School was not the greatest. The school itself seemed old, the student parking lot was filled with gravel (it still is), and there was only one high school hallway. In the midst of my tour, it was not diverse whatsoever. Alongside that, there were young children in the hallways and it was overly crowded. Recently, my friend and I wanted to audit a psychology class. The both of us are going to the local community college twice a week, This means, if we were to take seated classes, we would be absent two days out of the week, putting us behind on our work. So what we do is we take online college classes through Drury University for those hours we cannot sit in a classroom. They did not want to let us have the opportunity to learn, just because they did not want to give others that opportunity. I think they find excuses. Overall, my school is not very welcoming.
Plato school districts administration do their absolute best to see us succeed and get us ready for college. Our breakfast and lunch selection has improved greatly and there is rarely a meal that no one likes. We have multiple athletic and club programs that are very competitive with their competition in the area. In all honesty the one thing we lack is diversity, we are mainly a Caucasian school district with few exceptions. The school district has spent great amounts of money in hopes to keep their students safe.
The school is not all that fair. There are many issues with it. It is not the worst, but it is not the best. I am not prepared for college.
