    "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."

    "Two of my three children attend Binkley and the youngest is very excited to join them next year. The teachers are amazing! They teach to each child's level by having seperate reading groups for the higher, mid and lower kids. They find new ways to challenge each child while still supporting them. The principal is wonderful! He is very attentive to each class's needs and some how still keeps track of each student! My middle daughter's first day, I was nervous how she would do with the seperation. When I arrived for pick up, I happened to pass by him, and he stopped me to tell me that he had checked in on her a few times throughout the day and she did just fine! He had only met me once prior to this encounter! He, along withh the rest of the staff make Binkley feel like a very close-knit communitee."
