International School of the Peninsula Reviews

1 review
My daughter has been at ISTP for six years. I can't say enough good things about the school! The addition of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning has made a strong academic program even better. In addition to developing bilingualism in our daughter, there are a variety of classes that foster the whole child. She has been learning computer science and design thinking since kindergarten and loves her PE, Art, and Music classes. We love that there are two immersion programs, Chinese and French, which makes for a diverse and internationally-minded community. Most importantly, our daughter is developing an understanding of the world that focuses on compassion and responsibility.
