Student Experiences

Binford Elementary School is a unique place that offers students a wide array of activities beyond the rigorous academics. Binford students participate in various clubs and organizations. Some of these clubs and groups include the state-level BadgerBots robotics team, Running Club, Girls on the Run, choir, band, Math Club, Chess Club, Coding Club, Stone Carving, and our new Connection Clubs. Binford is excited about our newest endeavour Badger Connection Clubs, which allow students to work with a teacher, learning about their passion and interests, while developing bonds with adults in our school. These clubs are varied in topic, such as Cat Lovers Society, Outdoors Club, Knitting club, Strong Body and Mind Club, etc. Our goal is to make Binford not only great academically, but also a place that will bring joy to all students and develops the whole child.

Binford prides itself on our great community partnerships. Binford hosts students studying education from both Indiana University and Ivy Tech Community College. Binford’s ENrich tutoring program is run by Indiana University students who come onsite and offer tutoring to Binford students who are learning English. Binford also has unique opportunities to work with Indiana University School of Chemistry, Indiana University Maurer School of Law and other great programs offered by IU.
