On our Mountain View Campus we had our very own GISSV Pumpkin Patch today for the first time!
Events are a great part of school life, bringing together all members of the GISSV community, and giving us an opportunity to celebrate and engage in conversations.
Among our recurring annual public events are a German Holiday Market, where we transform Downtown Mountain View into a bustling “holiday village” for a day, or the Laternenfest (Lantern Festival) on our San Francisco Campus with on-campus entertainment and a lantern parade through the neighborhood.
Campus events for the GISSV community celebrate American as well as German holidays, sportsmanship (Walk-a-Thon, soccer matches with schools in the Bay Area), music (talent show, concerts), community (Summer Fest, Gala) and more.
"Shaping the Future of Entrepreneurship in Germany and the US" , part of a Wunderbar Together initiative
GISSV was honored to be part of the German flag raising ceremony commemorating German Unity Day.
Together with all Germans and friends in our community, in the Bay Area, and beyond we are celebrating this special day.
Congratulations and kudos to our graduates for navigating the challenges of the past two school years and their exceptional accomplishments!
