History Of School

ISTP was established in 1979 as the Peninsula French-American School. In 1996, the school added the Chinese-English program and changed its name to the International School of the Peninsula. Today, we offer both French-English and Chinese-English dual language immersion programs, as well as an English-based International Middle School beginning in 6th grade.
