Bingham Farms Elementary is a wonderfully diverse school with a cozy, family atmosphere. In recent years, our total enrollment averages 300 with class sizes averaging 20 students!
We pride ourselves on helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Bingham takes character education seriously, and we strive to "Be our Bingham Best" all day every day! The Bingham Best touchstones reflect the core values of our school:
RESPECT, KINDNESS, RESPONSIBILITY, and HONESTY.
These traits of good character are displayed around the school on pillars, in classrooms, and on our Bingham eagle posters. Most importantly, they are displayed regularly by the students in our school.
Many of these lessons culminate when the upper-elementary students serve as buddies to younger grades. The older students read to the younger ones, help them with team-building activities, and more. Bingham also recently introduced the Eagle’s Nest program to build on our family atmosphere. Students meet in K-5 nest groups where they create mascots and get to know other teachers. The Eagle’s Nests meet for some assemblies, meetings, and other enrichment activities. Students get to know more people from other grades, allowing for friendships and mentorships to develop across the building!
Curriculum & Enrichment
Our highly qualified staff is committed to helping each student discover their highest potential. We provide students with intellectually challenging instruction in math, literacy, science, and social studies, all with integrated technological and collaborative teaching methods. This core curriculum is complemented by extraordinary art, music, physical education, Spanish, and media classes. Along with the rich curriculum, we offer myriad enrichment opportunities both on and off site like Math Pentathlon, Battle of the Books, Science Olympiad, the fifth grade camp trip, a third grade field trip to the Capitol in Lansing, and more! You will often see our parking lot full as we host numeracy, literacy, and diversity nights during the year.
If you are a prospective Bingham family, please visit Prospective Families on the Birmingham Public Schools website for more details and to learn more about our enrolling process. Tours will resume once restrictions allow us to safely do so. At that time, arrange for tours by contacting Community School Organizer, Cindy Blakely, at (248) 203-3382, or via email by clicking HERE
