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.

Dear White Hill Community,

Post Thanksgiving week was terrific.  It's always nice to get back in the swing of things and see the kids back on campus.  Our 6th graders took in the Yes play Sherlock Holmes today at the playhouse and we rolled out our new field trip transportation system (for most field trips) - school buses!  It sure was nice to quickly load 130 kids on three buses and take them to and from the playhouse with such ease.  We hope those of you that would have been scrambling at home or work in order to drive on the field trip are happy with our new transportation.  It was perfect from our end.  

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunny weather.  

Badgers 24  Nittany Lions 17 - Big Ten Champs!




Word on the street is that many of the lice shops are seeing lots of RVSD and Drake kids for treatment and removal!  Please check your child's head and do what you can to keep them lice free and from sharing their friends with others!  Thank you - scratch, scratch.
