The Board of Directors for Silicon Valley International School (INTL) of Palo Alto, CA and the Board of Trustees of Alto International School (Alto) of Menlo Park, CA are excited to announce a full merger of our two schools, to be known as Silicon Valley International School.
The first few weeks of school can be challenging for both your children and your family. INTL's* Elementary School (PYP*) Principal Lauren Christel recently shared some ideas to help your family re-adjust to the routine of school. Whether your child attends public school, private school, or a bilingual school like Silicon Valley International School, these tips will make your back-to-school just a little easier.
*In 2020, the International School of the Peninsula (ISTP) formally changed its name to Silicon Valley International School (INTL) to better reflect its bilingual programs, location, and international values.
INTL is a candidate school for the Primary Years Programme. We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that INTL believes is important for our students. Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
