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.

Wildcat Wrap 10.7.2016

Dear White Hill Community,

The Fun Run was today and we had a great showing of runners and walkers.  Thanks to all of you that have donated to our parent club.  I will email you soon with an email about where we stand overall.  The fundraising website and incentives for the kids will run through next Friday so we have time to meet our goal.  Stay tuned for more information.  Wisconsin takes a break this weekend prior to the huge game vs. that school from Ohio next Saturday night!  I'll be sending the Wrap next week from Camp Randall Stadium as I'll be back in Wisconsin for the upset!   Have a great weekend.
