Gabriele Gramann - WABE e.V. Executive Chairman

In 2014, a suitable property on the former site of the Eggerstedter "Kasernengelände" (Military Area) in Pinneberg was founded for the planning of an educational campus.  Currently, the campus contains a modern Kindergarten and the International School Campus.  In the coming years, the campus will also contain beautiful boarding facilities and a professional training academy. The Academy will be housed for adult professional development in the fields of education and health.

The International School Campus has been approved by the Ministry in Kiel for the "Ersatzschul Status".  The International School Campus is in the process of gaining accreditation from organizations such as the International Baccalaureate, with anticipation that it will achieve the IB World School status in the Spring of 2019.

The construction company is WABE Internat gGmbH, a subsidiary of WABE e.V.  The International School Campus was completed in August of 2016 and the first day of school was 5 September 2016."
