My daughter just completed Kindergarten at Norman Binkley. As most parents are, we weren't sure what to expect in the first year. The faculty is wonderful! They provide a safe and fun atmosphere which facilitates learning. The teachers will challenge their students as needed, or work with them in any problem area. The school also hosts many family-oriented activities, such as movie nights, a carnival, a fun run, Dads and Doughnuts, Moms and Muffins, as well as holiday centered programs. We could not be more pleased with this elementary school!

I had so many concerns about sending our son to this neighborhood school. Now, I can't imagine him anywhere else. A true gem in our neighborhood. I just wish more parents would give it a chance. Fabulous teachers and administration.

Norman Binkley is awesome! Principal Urquhart and his staff have done an amazing job turning this school around. There has been huge improvements in test scores and parent engagement. The renovation and new addition allows everyone to see how great this neighborhood treasure really is - inside and out!

Norman Binkley is an elementary school where the teachers care about your children. They want to see each and every student in their classes make as much academic and emotional growth as they can. The school is very diverse and all of the teachers are trained in teaching students whose first language isn't English.

Norman Binkley Elementary School is a hidden gem in the MNPS schools! We are a small school, staying with a student population around or right below 500 students. It's not too big so the teachers get to know the students in their grade level, along with getting to know the other kiddos too. The students see that the teachers truly care about each other and it shows with the relationships/friendships that you see throughout the building. The teachers and students work extremely hard here at Binkley! We might have a diverse population, but they become solid students academically. Not only are we teaching them academically, we're building life-long learners who want to learn with great positive attitudes!

My daughter is a student at Norman Binkley Elementary and we LOVE it! All of the teachers are highly qualified and they take the time to give her the individual attention she needs. The staff at the school plan fun activities outside of school that involve the entire family. The front office staff is always friendly and courteous and very helpful. The school is newly renovated, bright, clean and very inviting. I am proud to be the parent of a Binkley Blue Jay!

We are one of the best kept secrets in Metro! Norman Binkley teachers and staff work diligently each day to provide an exceptional learning program for each student. Although, like all schools, we have a few issues such as space constraints, we manage to keep our focus on our students as our top priority. While we have many portable classrooms lined up in the back of our park-like setting, it remains an extremely safe and secure school. New leadership has proven to be positive for the students, teachers and families of Norman Binkley. We are a data-driven school that is dedicated to providing an exceptional learning environment and program for each individual student at Norman Binkley Elementary through best teaching practices and technology.

This is a great school and you will find a sense of community as soon as you step in the doors. The faculty and staff are amazing and they do what's best for the students. The students come from all backgrounds which presents challenges, but the teachers are well equipped and ready to help these students. The teachers build a sense of community in their classroom and the students can feel comfortable to be themselves and learn. This school is an older school, but it has great character!

Norman Binkley is a great school. Both of my children attend here. They are both a special transfers. We decided to send them here because of the small size and experienced and dedicated faculty and staff. My oldest son is now in 4th grade and began Kindergarten at Binkley. He has received a quality education with teachers that care. My younger son is now in 1st grade at Binkley. His teachers have been wonderful and worked hard to give him a solid foundation. If you want quality, well-educated, and caring teachers, you need look no further.

This school is a wonderful school. The teachers are caring, competent, and provide strong instruction daily. It does face some challenges, however great efforts are being made to continue to make Norman Binkley the best school.

This is the worst school any of my children have ever attended. Most of the children in our neighborhood have been given special exceptions to other schools due to substandard education and care this school provides.
