White Hill Middle School is a California Distinguished School that serves the communities of San Anselmo and Fairfax. It is the Ross Valley School District's sole middle school for approximately 760 students from our communities' four elementary schools.

Our academic program offers a breadth of challenge and opportunity with core English, History, Science, and Math classes and award-winning art, music, technology (STEAM), and foreign language electives. Forty-one credentialed teachers, twenty-five staff members, one counselor, two counseling interns and two administrators support an engaging and rigorous education program. White Hill is enriched by broad parent and community support and is a active partner in the work of our district's YES Foundation.

Located on the western edge of Fairfax at the base of White's Hill, the school campus is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and open space and sits on a 22-acre site that includes Lefty Gomez Field. White Hill was built in 1969 and has gone through three major renovations (1985, 2000 and 2013). December 2013 marked the opening of 25,000 square feet of new buildings and classrooms which provide our students and staff with a first class facility for 21st-century learning.

Wildcat Wrap 3.17.2017

Dear White Hill Community,
 
What a great week at White Hill.  The sun was out, the kids are engaged in learning as we move into the end of the 3rd quarter, and everything on campus seems to be drying out and blooming as we hit our spring stride.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher, our counseling staff, or any of us in the office if you need assistance.  We are here to help, we want your input, and we want to ensure your child is having a great experience at White Hill.  
 
Have a terrific weekend, keep your eye on those Badgers as we upset #1 Nova tomorrow in the tournament, and we’ll see the kids on Monday!
 
See below for the latest and greatest…
