    "As a military family we tried to get our children into this school, everyone swears by it. Unfortunately we only encountered unprofessional and irresponsible behavior from administration. Behavior included annoyed frustrated adults, loosing paperwork to include loosing scanned documents on e-mail attachments and then blaming each other or technical issues. If this behavior filters down to the classrooms I don't even want to know what it would be like. We decided to seek enrollment in a more professional and responsible environment."

    "I wish I could give this school a 0 but it does not allow me to. First of all this school is suppose to be an Airbase school. Yet its very difficult to get in because 30 percent of the population is from the local community. Is it an airbase school or a community school? It took us 2 years to get in and now I am so disappointed. Swearing is not addressed, teachers and administration have their favorite if you are a working mom and did not volunteer you and your kids are considered black sheep. Their curriculum is a joke, they focus on the state tests. But of course their ratings are going to be higher then the average community since 70% of the population are military that have received academic training at other schools which pulls their ratings up. Next year my children are going back to Sommerset Silverpalms!!"

    "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."
