The Silicon Valley International School (INTL) was established as a French immersion school in 1979, and was named the Peninsula French American School. Founded by Charlotte de Géry with a small group of parents and friends, the school originally opened its doors to nine students.
In 1996, we added a bilingual Chinese program as well as an international middle school and changed our name to the International School of the Peninsula.
In 2020, we again changed our name to Silicon Valley International School (INTL), to better reflect our location and our growth into an international school with a global reputation and reach. Today, we have a student body of over 500 students across two Palo Alto campuses.
