SPES serves approximately 500 children in grades Sure Start to 5th. Our multicultural student population is made up of dependents of U.S. Military and Department of Defense Civilian Personnel assigned to Spangdahlem AB and Buechel Flugplatz. Our faculty members also represent varied multicultural backgrounds and are from many of the 50 states as well as some foreign countries. This diversity is a strength.

Spangdahlem Elementary School is located on Spangdahlem Air Base in the Eifel Region of Germany’s Rhineland-Palatinate State. Specifically, the school is located near the residential area of the air base. The school offers a wide range of academic programs including Physical Education, Music, Host Nation (known as German culture class), Art, as well as the basic curriculum of language arts, math, science, health, and social studies.
