From Silicon Valley International School

Silicon Valley International School provides a one-of-a-kind bilingual International Baccalaureate experience. We are an independent, co-educational, non-sectarian day school with Chinese, French, and German programs spanning preschool through 12th grade. We offer opportunities for students who are fluent in a second language and those who would like to learn a new language.

Since 1979, Silicon Valley International School (formerly known as International School of the Peninsula and Alto International School) has been the top international school in Silicon Valley, which educates students through a rigorous and dynamic bilingual program. Students are inspired to develop an inquisitive and responsible international mindset, one that fosters curiosity and builds cultural fluency, encouraging positive action and change in our world.

INTL is an International Baccalaureate World School offering the IB Primary Years, Middle Years, and Diploma Programme.
