Prof. Dr. Böhmer, Minister of State at the German Federal Foreign Office, visited the GISSV Mountain View campus.
GISSV was pleased to welcome Prof. Dr. Maria Böhmer, Minister of State at the German Federal Foreign Office, and her delegation to our Mountain View campus on Monday, March 13. Members of our leadership team, Board of Directors and students gave a campus tour to the group and talked about school life in Silicon Valley and at GISSV in particular. Among the topics discussed were the opportunities and challenges of our growing campus and the vision for GISSV's future. Prof. Dr. Böhmer engaged in a lively discussion with our students and expressed her appreciation for GISSV's excellent programs. We thank the delegation for their enthusiasm and support for education, and for the time spent with us before they proceeded on their tour through Silicon Valley to visit Google and Stanford University. The day concluded with a reception at the Consulate General of Germany in San Francisco, where our Head of School Michael Koops and Board president Anne Hess had the opportunity to further discuss issues around education and school development with Prof. Dr. Böhmer.
