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.

It's my belief that Plato hasa mediocre administration and absurd policies. Most of the administration at Plato is too strict at enforcing rules that are hard to follow, and don't serve a purpose. They are reasonable to an extent, such as keeping phones away while a teacher is talking, but others are absolutely pointless. An example of this is the dress code. The dress code at Plato is heavily enforced, and is almost exclusively enforced on girls. If your shorts were even half an inch shorter than they liked, you had to get new clothes. Shoulders needed to be covered, however the boys however could wear tank tops and no one would care. Almost all of the policies need to be reworked to be fair to students.
Overall, I can't say much bad about the sports and fitness at Plato High School. They could use a few more sports, though given the school's small size it's easy to understand why they don't have a huge number of sports. Areas and equipment made for sports were well kept, except for the male locker room. I believe that the locker room is too small to fit a normal-sized class inside. Other than that, the gym teachers are laid back enough you don't feel overly pressured, but excited enough to encourage you to do better.
