Air Base Elementary, The Center for International Education is located in Homestead, Florida. It opened as a neighborhood school in 1958. After Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Homestead Air Force Base families were relocated and student population dropped. In attempt to keep the school from closing, a federal magnet grant was submitted and approved in the summer of 1995 and as a result International Education Magnet Program was authorized.
