Even though the school population is predominately Hispanic, all the students are included in every aspect of school activities.

My son is a 1st grader and is miserable with school. The teachers are overworked and appear to be exhausted. Parent/teacher talks are useless. I will be moving him soon or home schooling soon. The office staff are great. Some of the teachers are great.

I'm conflicted with Binion Elementary. The teachers are awesome, but those in charge are a bit concerning. The after school program is horrible; the lady who runs it is extremely unorganized, unapologetic and refuses to take responsibility for her program. We've some problems with bullying, and no one in administration seemed concerned. Like I said... the teachers are amazing and should be praised for their enthusiasm and dedication to the students, but the Principle on down should be more watchful.

My son attends first grade with Dawn Tacker as his teacher. This is the third school my son has attended and the only one that I have felt so comfortable with and liked so well. All member's of the staff have been excellent. My son gets one on one attention and is treated as an individual instead of just one of the class. I highly recommend this school, and the campus is beautiful!

When I moved to Texas from OR, I was having a bit of trouble transferring my daughter. But, the staff at Jack C Binon went above and beyond to make sure she was placed in the perfect class. And, it happened in record time. So, I am appreciative of them and everything they do. (That, and she loves her teacher!!!)

I'm a parent and I have 3 kids who attend Binion Elem. My husband and I moved here in 2006 and our kids have been here for 3 yrs. We all love it! When we got here the school had an old building, but it was kept clean and decent. Last year the school just got a brand new 2-story building. I really like the teachers here. Everyone is hardworking and caring toward the kids. My kids grades have been wonderful here (nothing less than a C). There's also tutoring available for kids that are falling behind and it's free. There is a lot of parent involvement here. The teachers are very strong in leading their class. The principal rides throughout the school (he's in a wheel-chair) to see how things are going everyday. We have a lot of fun here, and a lot of the staff have decent Morals :)

I absolutely love this school. The teachers provide a cirrriculum well suited for the various learning styles represented at the school. The children are provided with quality experiences at Binion that many of them would otherwise miss. The cultural diversity of the staff and students offers the students the opportunity to learn tolerance and acceptance. This is a unique opportunity that many schools do not provide. I am grateful that my son has such a wonderful and supportive school home.

Wow what a deception, this school has terrible parents, with no discipline they are worst than their kids, also the school staff is not so great, sometimes they are organized and sometimes they are not, i am ashamed to have my kid in here, the only good thing is the building wich is new, but that is it.

Jack C Binion Elem is a very old school, but soon to be replaced with a new, beautiful building. I am sure students, teachers and parents will all show pride in a school that has crossed the ages of education. Jack C Binion offers wonderful opportunities for children. Teachers and staff go the extra mile to ensure good mental stimulation. I'm very proud to have my Grandson at this school. Thank you Jack C Binion.

Teachers and staff not very friendly. Kids are left behind in learning. After school activities are more daycare than learning.

Binion is a great school. The teachers are second to none and principle robertson is a get-it-done administrator who works lot more than most principals i have ever seen. However..... The school facilities are wretched.

Average academics, but the after school program is the most attractive feature of this school--ITS FREE!

Jack C. Binion Elementary (formerly Glenview Elementary) is a wonderful educational establishment. Community volunteers and leaders are often seen in the hallways tutoring children and encouraging them to do their best. Teachers volunteer their time before / after school to teach extra classes and clubs.
