This is Vernia Y. Bodison, your very proud principal. At ABES, we prepare students for college and life through a rigorous and relevant curriculum. This year, we will continue to focus on our school goals of boosting all academic achievement, creating opportunities for students to demonstrate world class citizenship, increasing our literacy focus, and improving our student leadership, service learning, and mentorship programs. We will work diligently to model our PRIDE expectations daily and keep those expectations high so students can engage with us in a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment. We look forward to “Achieving Excellence Together” by keeping our focus on our academic and behavioral goals in order to help the children.
