    "Binkley is not just a school. It's a community. The teachers, principal, staff, students and families all work together to help one another learn, teach and grow as people. With a diverse population, our students learn to accept people for who they are and grow from their shared experiences."

    "My daughters attend Binkley Elementary Charter School, and we are all very happy with the quality of their education. The teachers and staff are amazing. One of our daughters has really been struggling with math. Through the school's tutoring program, she has improved by leaps and bounds. Our other daughter is accelerated, and through the GATE program and her teachers, her needs to feel challenged are met without her feeling overwhelmed. All of their teachers through the years have kept an open communication with us. The principal is great, and very accessible. We are very proud be Binkley Bobcats!"

    "i wasn't impressed with the school. my daughter spent the first 6 months of kinder there, and then we pulled her out. the first issue is that she constantly complained of being bored. she was already reading when she entered kinder and the kids were just starting letter recognition. i spoke on multiple occassions with her teacher but their solution was more worksheets and/or work to do at home. nothing to engage her in class. they finally agreed to test her which confirmed her advanced reading level and decided to put her in 1st grade for an hour a day. the problem was she rarely went there. the final straw for us was another child in her class who was known to have behavioral issues and who other parents had complained about had started being aggressive with my daughter. hitting, biting, pushing, calling her stupid. the teacher was aware but continued to have them sit near each other. it got to the point were at least once a week he was physically hurting her. when i approached the teacher, i just got a nod . but no plan of action. the principle was better, but i wasn't interested in running the him constantly. so we moved schools."
