About

History

The International School of the Peninsula (ISTP) 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. Today, we have grown to have a student body of over 500 students across two Palo Alto campuses.
In 1996, the school added a bilingual Chinese program as well as an international middle school and changed its name to the International School of the Peninsula.

Our Founder

The International School of the Peninsula was started by an exceptional person with an unwavering vision for a language immersion school that educates bilingual and bicultural individuals. Madame de Géry’s drive and the compelling force of her vision galvanized a group of selfless, dedicated people who helped to launch the school. Charlotte de Géry is a permanent honorary trustee of the International School of the Peninsula.
