Alumni Parents

"...ISTP provided more than a fine education for my children; it provided friends here in Silicon Valley and all over Europe to visit, to travel with, to learn from and enjoy..."

Tate Cohn
ISTP Alumni Parent

"The parent community here is just a real gem in my life and a gem in my daughters' lives. And I have great memories – we all have great memories of the International School."

Catherine Shinners
ISTP Alumni Parent
Over the past thirty years, one thing has proved certain: the strength of our school community! A special part of our community is you, our Peninsula French American School / International School of the Peninsula alumni parents. Because of ISTP, great friendships have been forged over the years, and we want to be able to give you the opportunity to strengthen those friendships, rekindle old ones, and make new ones!
