  • Very pleased with this school. Both of my kids are in the gifted program and they love it. The staff is very proffesional and they take good care of the kids. They treat them as family. That is what Airbase is for us,part of our family. They really understand what military families go thru and help in all they can. Keep up the good work!

  • I live very close, I have many friends who have their children studying in this school, they are very happy. I'm always asking about the schools and I would like my son to study at this college, is my only child and want what's best for him. It has 3 years and in November will fulfill the 4 years.

  • The teachers are great!The principal is involve. My son has been attending from the age of 4 and he is now 8. It would be difficult to pick "Teacher of The Year" when they all do such a great job. Keep up the great work!

  • My children have been going to this school for 3 years. This year, a new elementary school was built one block from my house but I will still have my children travel to airbase. I watched my daughter truly blossom. Keep up the good work.
