    "This is our first year in this school. My daughter is in Kindergarten gifted program. Its a great feeling when she comes home to tell us about another great day...Praising her teacher all the time. School gives me many opportunities to volunteer. Volunteering keeps me updated to things going on in school and I feel good helping out too... I do not feel alienated here...I'm always welcomed by a smile from the receptionists."

    "My daughter attended Binks Forest's gifted program for four years. First through 3rd grade were great. Now her fourth grade year was awlful. This is where I first noticed that this is not the school for my child. Her teacher would ridicule her infront of her peers consistently. I had many teacher conference at my request to try to understand her crazy method of teaching. What I was told is that if my child did not understand the lesson , she did not have time to stop and explain. I would ask my daughter to please ask questions if she was not clear on something. When she asked a question she was ridiculed. We finally made it through the year and my daughter did manage to get a "B" in her class. I was basically the math teacher all year. They really push the gifted children, which is fine by me as long as the children are also given the tools needed to suceed. I was basically told either they are born knowing it or the fall through the cracks. I did speak to two other parent's who noticed the same issues. To be fair to the school ,this may be just this teacher. Hopefully no one else has to endure a school year with her."

    "Nowdays every school in Florida runs in order to get good scores at FCAT, this is the way our government has found out to clasify teachers and students which in certain way is good but then drive everybody to mainly focus on it, putting aside what the most important focus should be for the students to learn regardless of test results, we have become and our students will be "TEST TAKERS" not knowing anything and knowing a minimal bit just to pass those tests and pass them well. On the other hand since this is a generalized way, I am very pleased with Binks Forest Elementary teachers and staff, they all show being very well trained on what they have to do, just one concern Principal has been changed 3 times in 4 years!!!"

    "Every child, every parent has their own unique experience. Your feeling about a school may depend on what your child's unique needs/abilities are. Realize this school offers a tremendous amount of academics and enrichment activities. Some parents may complain about letting up after FCAT and others complain there is too much work till the end of the year. Can't win. Hold your criticisms until your kid goes to middle school. You'll be grateful your child was prepared so well by Binks."
