    "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!"

    "The webpage is amazing!!! What a wealth of information!! I recently transferred to Florida for work, and I went to their website to learn more about the school, it's programs, staff, and various activities and events. It was visually stunning!! Packed with information!! I filled out my child's application immediately. I look forward to my daughter attending there for years to come, especially now that that I was told it is a kindergarten through eighth grade center."

    "We missed this school so much!! Me (the parent) and my three children. It's such a diverse well rounded school. We transferred to Tennessee for work and though the school is well staffed by decent teacher where they now attend...(forgive me, but I must tell the truth)...my children have been called the N-word over here three times already since being here. (sobbing)..never in my life have my children been exposed to such racism and such nonsense in their lives...never!! The principle at the school have handled it diligently and was kind enough to called me at home and told me what happen as my little ones went (8 yr old twins) went to the office crying. Miss the diversity, no bullying standards, the curriculum and "second language" this school offered my kids. Should have never left..(but as a supporting wife to the hubby I agreed to pick up and move. Tell you what though...MY FOOT is down, (oh yeah!) and we're moving back! Airbase....here we come!"

    "Recently, I transferred my daughter to Air Base from another top rated elementary school with an IB program. However, I am thrilled with Air Base. The school is extremely diverse and representative of the country. She is in full-time Gifted and the teacher is amazing! As a teacher within the MDCPS system, I am so impressed with her level of compassion and excitement for learning. My only reservation for parents considering this school is the amount of hoomework. It borders on ridiculous. That withstanding, it tops our parochial school and IB school experiences."
