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 6th-, 7th- and 8th-grade 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.

Food Drive!

Ms. Ruzzier's Advisory Class will be running a food drive as part of their community service starting today through May 8th.

-peanut butter (ideally with no added sugar)

-fruit spreads and jams (preferably low sugar)

-jars or single servings of apple sauce and fruit

-canned fruit (low or no sugar)

-baking mixes that require few ingredients

-canned tuna, chicken, salmon

-ketchup, mustard, soy sauce and other basic condiments

-Italian seasoning and other mixed spices
