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,

Thanks to all of our 6th-grade family members who made it out to our annual Bingo Night! Nothing like some good old fashioned fun. Things are rolling right along here – please let us know if there is anything we can do to support you or your child at White Hill. Have a great weekend and see below for some important information.

Fun Run!

Is your child registered? Please do so today. We have raised close to $20,000.00 as of today which puts us at 20% of our goal!We need every child to try and raise a minimum of $120 for our school. That has to be our average raised to meet our goal of $95,000. Of course, some kids can’t meet that number so we need those that can beat it to do so! Please register your child today and help him/her get started: 

Thank you!

White Hill Culinary Club Needs Your Help!

We had over 60 sixth graders at our first Culinary Club meeting of the year! We also have a 7th- and 8th-grade section of the club!

Do you have any gently used cooking items? The Culinary Club needs your support!  We are looking for any gently used cooking equipment that you may want to donate. Griddles? Crock pots? Serving trays? Spatulas, ctc.? Any other equipment taking up room in your kitchen that could be put to good use?

Please send any donations to Room 102, Miss Watson in the 6th grade building. Thank you and Bon Appétit!

Punctured Bike Tires?

We have had a rash of punctured tires at White Hill this year and thanks to the detective work of several parents, we think we have identified the problem. Just outside the White Hill field entrance on the northeast side of the field there is a sidewalk that runs parallel to with Sir Francis Drake Blvd from Glen Drive to the field entrance.  Alongside the sidewalk is a median that is full of goat thorn bushes and goat thorns scattered throughout. There are literally hundreds if not more goat thorns and these are what are puncturing the bike tires. We have notified our kids that they must ride on the sidewalk when they leave the field area until they reach the street. If they cut across the median they risk a flat tire. Due to the magnitude of the problem we are not able to clean them all up (work party, anyone?) but if the kids stay on the sidewalk they will be fine.  Here’s hoping this solves the problem!

White Hill Clubs!

Fall lunchtime and after-school clubs are starting next week. The full list with times and location is attached and it is posted in the office. Kids may show up next week to a club even if they didn’t sign up!  The more the merrier!
