We Are International
At International High School, community is measured in shared stories, lessons, and laughs. From the moment students walk through our doors, we encourage them to support one another, and to respect one another's backgrounds, space, and points of view. They wear bright colors, speak in flavorful accents, and explore their edge.
Our teachers bring a slice of the world beyond California into each classroom, and teach in not only two languages, but also deliver two honors-level diploma programs: the IB and the French Bac. Our travel program sends students to all corners of the globe.
It takes a unique type of person, whether student, teacher, or parent, to join our community: bold but not brash, caring but not doting, reflective yet active. We strive to think critically and creatively, to build resilience, and to communicate across cultures. All are essential tools in today's world—ones that we've been cultivating for over 35 years. When students go on to college, they depart as seasoned thinkers, thespians, tinkerers, scientists, athletes, and adventurers.
