Our History

Walking to School

Wiesbaden ES previously Hainerberg Elementary School used to be called Vandenberg Elementary School until the 1970's when the name of the school was changed. This happened when the Headquarters for USAF Europe left Wiesbaden and the U.S. Army took control of the military communities and housing areas. No reason was ever given for the change in name. The school was simply told that the name was to be changed!

The school name has been changed to Wiesbaden ES effective July 1, 2020 was opened in the early 1950's when the entire housing area was built. It was opened as a K-5 school and serviced all the children in the immediate housing area and all the students on the economy. The 7th and 8th grades were located in the northern part of the building and Hap H. Arnold High School was across the street in the next block. As enrollment in the elementary school grew, some of the classes were moved into basement rooms in the housing area along Mississippi Strasse. There were nine of these classrooms and they were first used for 5th and 6th grade, Art and Special Education classes.
