The International School of the Peninsula provides an immersion-based bilingual and multi-cultural education to students from pre-kindergarten through ninth grade. The school was founded in 1979 as the Peninsula French American School.

Responding to community interest the school in 1996 became the International School of the Peninsula, adding a Chinese-American program, a second campus and a middle school. Studies show that bilingualism maintained through the ninth grade lasts a lifetime.

The International School of the Peninsula's long-term objective is to provide a complete international education through high school, offering multiple bilingual programs that culminate in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

The aim is for each child to develop fluent literacy in French or Chinese, and English; respect, tolerance and appreciation for all cultures; and personal integrity, independence and leadership. A rigorous academic program at International School of the Peninsula emphasizes conceptual and critical thinking, and encourages intellectual risk-taking.

The native speaking, certified teachers work together to stimulate children's intellectual, creative and physical development. Small classes provide students the individual attention they need to master a bilingual curriculum, while access to school-wide enrichment programs encourages every child to explore his or her special talents and interests. Holidays and festivals provide an engaging context for formal cross-cultural programs.

The French-American section of the International School of the Peninsula combines the best of American education with the highly reputed French national education system while the Chinese-American section brings together the best teaching philosophies of the east and west to deliver a bilingual education in English and Mandarin Chinese. The middle school faculty works together to address the special needs of young adolescents and prepare students to continue their studies in leading French, American or international schools.
