Ramstein-Miesenbach), Am Neuen Markt 4, 66877 Ramstein-Miesenbach on 7th March
at 18.00. For more information or to register for this event, please contact us

Here the basis short Info as well publish at the wensday Amtsblatt:


We are delighted to announce that after three years of
planning, the International School Westpfalz is due to open its doors in August
2017 in Marktstraße 27, 66877 Ramstein-Miesenbach.


The International School Westpfalz will be offering education according
to the highest international standards to develop inquiring, compassionate,
knowledgeable young people. The school will start as a Kindergarten and Primary
school, accepting enrolments for students aged 4 -11 years old (pre-school
through to Year Six). Our plan is to review the success of this start-up over a
three year period as a primary school. If we see a positive a reaction and
receive the support we will need in setting up this pioneer project, then we
will consider rolling out the school to both a middle school and high school
section over the coming years. The plan is to use the next three years to
develop an international school supported by the region, which will also have
close ties with the International School in Neustadt an der Weinstraße. It is
our goal, which is shared by the representatives in Neustadt, to demonstrate
the value of an international school for the locality, the region and the
economy as well as to establish ideal framework conditions and obtain the
necessary recognition.


The new Primary School will offer the following:


- International all-day school for children aged 4-11 years
(Kindergarten through to Year Six)

- Internationally recognized Curricular program – International
Baccalaureate Primary Years Program 

  (IB PYP)

- English will be the language of instruction

- Strong German program

- Afterschool care program until 5pm each day of the week

- Afterschool activities program (such as music, sports and arts)

- Individual support and coaching in small groups by internationally
qualified teachers

- Learning Support Unit

- Globally connected environment

- Strong community atmosphere

Quote by Bergman:

4 that I know of.

That's a pretty good number for one person to know.  I knew a few people who did German schools as well.  Some really liked it.  For those who are only going to be in Germany for a few years, it might be a bit much.  From what I have been told, the German schools are much more intense than DoDDS.

On the site of the schools (the idea and company is from swizzerland - the country happy to have rich parents children to teach) found the info, that the costs are a bit out of my range I would afford.   So the children/parents the school is looking for are (telling on page) management of international companies, Members of the forces of the states as well as NATO.

I see it as an enrichment of the school-offers, for the people, having the posibility to affort it.
