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.

French Students Enjoy a Morning on the Town!

This quarter, the three White Hill French Classes enjoyed a lovely authentic French petit déjeuner (breakfast) at L'Appart Resto in San Anselmo. Olivier kindly opened his restaurant on three separate mornings so that our students had an opportunity to practice greeting the proprietor, ordering their croisssants or pain au chocolat and their beverages, thanking Olivier and bidding him adieu. All in French.

L'Appart Reso doesn't serve breakfast and we deeply appreciate Olivier's graciousness in doing so for our French students. This neighborhood restaurant is a terrific place to enjoy delicious French food with fresh local ingredients in a relaxed casual atmosphere. And, of course, to practice your French. Real world experiences for our French students at White Hill!

The 13-14 YES Annual Report Is Out

Your contributions to the YES Foundation fund important programs for our kids the district wouldn't otherwise be able to offer. The YES Annual 2013-14 annual report, which is now available online, recaps the accomplishments of these programs and provides an overview on the Foundation's fundraising and expenses, as well as a quick look at new developments for 2014-15.

Whether it's for our schools' outstanding art, music and STEAM programs, 98 percent of new library books, poetry in the classrooms, YES Theater, assemblies or P.E. dance, clubs, and after-school sports at White Hill, your participation in YES makes a big difference for every child.

If you have made a pledge to YES this year, thank you. If you haven't pledged, you can go online here and make a commitment to all our students. Your donation of any amount  makes a difference in their experience today and their future success.
