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,

Well, that sure was an interesting week!  Everyone here is a little discombobulated but we got back on track today and are looking forward to the upcoming complete week before, you guessed it, another week off. I hope you have been able to stay dry and please let us know if there is anything we can do to support your son/daughter at White Hill. I have completed our incoming 6th grade tours but if you know of anyone who missed the chance to visit White Hill during the past few months, please have them reach out to me.  We are anticipating a great year and I'm happy to accommodate anyone who would like to hear about our 6th grade program and what's in store for their son/daughter.   

Have a great weekend and see below for more information from around our community.  



White Hill's Speech Club is starting - Are you looking for a positive challenge for your child?

The Speech Club is a great opportunity for students to build public speaking skills and to win prestigious awards at the Margie Burke Speech Tournament in Ross on April 29.

The club will support students in preparing for the tournament and having a valuable experience taking on an academic challenge.

The categories include:  

  • Dramatic Interpretation 
  • Persuasive 
  • Original Prose & Poetry
  • Impromptu

Students who love creative writing, sharing their strong opinions, or have dramatic flair are great candidates, and all are welcome!  If this sounds like a rewarding opportunity for your child, encourage him or her to join us!

The Speech Club meets on Thursdays at lunch with Mrs. Frank & Ms. Pierce


The Gala/Live Auction and Online Auction 

Elves are planning…and it’s shaping up to be fantastic (we already have a few really cool items, more on that later)

YES is volunteer based and we need more elves!  Check out the opportunists to help below, see if you can help out:

The ONLINE AUCTION is set for March 28 – April 6 – Our district wide fundraiser.


The GALA with LIVE AUCTION at Sweetwater (Yeah!) is set for May 6 – It is a celebration of our community and our other district wide fundraiser.


1. For both events we need more items for the auction!  Have or know someone who has and is willing to donate: vacation home, boat trips, exceptional home items (art, home improvement, etc.), or maybe you have a connection to a business (or know someone who does) that would like Ross Valley exposure…

2. Two or three people who can take charge of soliciting businesses and following up with phone calls to get items donated to the online auction.

3. One or two volunteers to take on getting wine donations

Thank you for your consideration!
