Welcome to Silicon Valley International School, the premiere multilingual World School on the west coast.
As an International Baccalaureate World School, we are proud to offer our students the world-renowned International Baccalaureate Programme – including the Primary Years, Middle Years, and IB Diploma Programmes. In August 2020, we announced our merger with Alto International School, extending our program through the High School years, beginning in the 2021-2022 school year.
Our rigorous bilingual education forms the heart of Silicon Valley International School, and we offer three language programs – French, Chinese, and German. Our students learn through language every day in the classroom, developing the skills to speak, read, write, and think in a second language.
But at INTL bilingualism means so much more than speaking another language. Through language and by being immersed every day in our international, multicultural community, our students become bicultural, develop cross-cultural understanding, learn to understand diverse perspectives, and develop into world citizens and international leaders.
INTL is a warm and welcoming school that provides a progressive, inquiry-based education, with a strong social-emotional learning component.
We embrace our location in the heart of Silicon Valley and we see innovation as a mindset we can develop in all our students through our computer science curriculum, tech integration, design thinking, and maker-education initiatives.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we drew on our spirit of innovation and our strong community to establish a flexible distance learning program - one that allowed our students to continue their bilingual, international education under very challenging circumstances. We are also very proud of our thorough preparation and planning for our students’ safe return to campus, helping to support the health of our entire school community.
Whether virtually or on campus, we strive to provide our students with an outstanding and unique educational experience - one that shapes the next generation of bilingual leaders with boundless futures.
