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.
In 2020 we announced our full merger with Alto International School, united under the same name – Silicon Valley International School (INTL).

With this exciting alliance, INTL will become the premiere international school on the west coast, offering French, Chinese, and German language programs for Preschool through 12th grades, and the full continuum of the International Baccalaureate.
