    "Very good school however, some teachers are very unprofessional. They lack classroom management and blame it on student behavior. If you ever have a complaint or concern and address it, your child becomes an immediate target. My child loves the school, but has been subject to teacher ridicule and derogatory comments. I am hoping for a better year next year, but if it begins in the same manner this whole year has been I will be removing my child."

    "What a wonderful environment for children to learn and grow! The teachers are caring and amazing at what they do. The children are always engaged and learning through experiences. Our son transferred here from charter, and we discovered that the education provided from this unnamed charter school was insufficient, to say the least. They were basically giving away As, and my child wasn't learning the necessary skills in order to move on. The 6th grade teachers zoned in on my son's deficiencies right away and have brought him to where he needs to be. I now have an amazing team of teachers truly pushing my son to achieve. The principal is another amazing individual. He is wonderful with the kids, easy to talk to, and is obviously doing an incredible job at running the school. Overall I have to say that Air Base is a priceless gem tucked away in Homestead."

    "It took me 2 years to get my daughters into this school. The teachers are knowledgeable and go out of their way to help the kids. The staff is also just as amazing. Lots of parent participation. Mr. Calzadilla greets parents and students, some by name, every morning!! Lots of activities for kids. Best decision I ever made was to transfer my kids to this school!! Work load is intense at times, but well worth it. I've compared the level of education to other schools/students and Air Base strives to teach the kids more. PTA is also very involved."

    "Our school is an amazing school. The environment is outstanding. My kids have learned so much over the years at ABE. The teachers are Friendly and caring. The principal is so involved and can be seen at the school on a regular basis. Our green team always has fun activities. We have well kept and maintained gardens for growing Herbs, veggies and tomatoes. I am honored to be an ABE parent. Because of the outstanding quality of learning at ABE, I am happy with the success my children have had at the school. Best A school in town."

    "I just had to take a minute to write about the main office staff at Air Base. Wow! My children have attended since Kindergarten and now are in fourth and fifth grade. I walked in to apply for VPK for next year since I heard that those applications are available through February 27th. I was pleasantly surprised with the office staff. There are two new ladies in the front, Ms. Lockee and Ms. Serrano. Ms. Lockee helped me out with the application. What an amazing lady! I was so pleased with her service. She answered all of my questions and was patient with me. She was so knowledgeable, quick, attentive...I am so happy she is part of the main office staff. I won't leave Ms. Serrano out either. She has helped me in the past and I can tell you, I don't ever mind dealing with her. She's always so nice and willing to help. What a team! Thank you Air Base for finding these two great ladies!"
