[PLATO (952) 832-1460, grades 9-12]
PLATO continues to win awards for excellence in design and delivery of its online learning environment, PLATO Courses. The self-paced, out-of-the-box, semester-long courses include Algebra, American History, Biology, Chemistry, English, Geography, Life Science, Physical Science, US Government, World History and Pre-Algebra. Compelling videos and animated lessons promote learning and credit recovery while students work toward graduation.
High school students will enjoy the rich, colorful interface and well-structured, interactive sequences which are aligned to state and national standards. Teachers have access to many classroom management tools, including a built-in comprehensive reporting system that ensures students have acquired knowledge and earned course credit.
Worthy of mention is the fact that, while some competitors' online courses are bogged down with extremely long video download times, PLATO utilizes software that expedites delivery of its comprehensive curriculum.
