Welcome to Wiesbaden High School! 

On behalf of our Warrior family, I am honored to welcome you to our school. Here we strive daily to achieve excellence. As the first 21st-century-designed high school in DoDEA, and the first 2lst-century designed school in Europe, we seek to chart a course in best practices in teaching and learning that prepare our students for college and career readiness. 

We held the ribbon-cutting ceremony for our beautiful new facility on September 13, 2017. Fully one-third of our students had a direct role in the success of a program that honored Wiesbaden's roots while looking to Wiesbaden's future. There we dedicated the facility to General Henry H. (Hap) Arnold, the namesake of the former school in Wiesbaden. 

Wiesbaden High School's rich traditions include strong academic and extracurricular programs that provide opportunities for all students to meet success. A robust Advanced Placement program offers twenty college-level courses across all disciplines while an equally robust CTE program offers options in seven career pathways. In 2019 two programs - robotics and drama - received nominations for the locally coveted Leonardo Award. Wiesbaden High School regularly has a high percentage of students invited to participate in DoDEA-Europe programs like Creative Connections, Culinary Faire, Honors Music, Educators Rising, and more. Our athletics programs compete at the highest level in DoDEA, and in Spring 2019, our Lady Warriors won championship titles in soccer, track & field, and softball. More than 90% of our students participate in at least one extra-curricular activity. At every turn, there is much to celebrate.
