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.

Order Your White Hill Yearbook Today!

The yearbook is a long-time tradition here at White Hill and it is entirely student-designed by 7th & 8th graders in the Yearbook & Graphic Arts elective class. The goal is to feature photographs of all White Hill students (6th, 7th, and 8th) and to capture images of the fun events on our campus throughout the year. Last year a yearbook was ordered for almost every student at White Hill and our end-of-the-year Yearbook Distribution and Signing event was a huge success. Yearbooks are hard-cover, all full color photographs, include an autograph section and will include more additional pages than last year's issue. They are a fabulous keepsake and make a great gift for your White Hill student.

White Hill PE Program Still Needs Donated Exercise Equipment!

Thanks to the improvements on the White Hill campus, the PE Department now has upgraded facilities including a brand new blacktop with new basketball courts and a beautifully renovated, huge multi-purpose PE room! Our goal as PE teachers is to provide your children with high quality physical education! To continue building our program, our idea for the new PE room is to bring in exercise equipment and set up some fitness stations. This would be a great option to have for rainy days! We are looking for any  donations of working equipment including exercise bikes, ellipticals, and/or a treadmill or two. Anything you can provide would be greatly appreciated and would benefit the students and the PE department here at White Hill! Thank you!
