About Our District
Welcome to the Ross Valley School District (RVSD)! Nestled in the heart of beautiful Marin County and less than twenty miles north of the Golden Gate, our District serves the towns of San Anselmo and Fairfax. Currently, transitional kindergarten (TK) through eighth grade enrollment at our five outstanding campuses (four elementary and one middle school) is approximately 1,800 students. Our eighth graders matriculate into the Tamalpais Union High School District (TUHSD), where the majority attend Archie Williams HS in San Anselmo. Performing academically in the top 5% of California’s public school systems, RVSD’s students also excel in art, music, poetry, drama, digital arts and more. Our highly engaged and supportive parents and staff are valued essential partners in everything we do and collectively, as a community, we are committed to CLIMB (Collaborate, Learn, Inspire, Mentor and Believe). Our proud tradition of inspiring unlimited possibilities for RVSD’s students dates back to 1893, when the first Board meeting of the San Anselmo School District was held. We look forward, as a community, to continuing this fine tradition for many decades to come and we warmly welcome you to our Ross Valley schools!
On a chilly February morning, forty-two Hidden Valley 2nd graders and a dozen of their parents spent the morning at Hal Brown Park along the marshy creek. We all met the friendly county park leader who showed us step-by-step, how to plant little plants into the ground.
Wade Thomas School was recognized as a California Distinguished School in 2018.

We are thrilled to share with you our very first district video which was inspired and created by two of our RVSD parents, Nancy Main and Jennifer Gonzalez. This short film features several teachers and administrators as well as a number of students, each sharing their reflections on what makes RVSD special to them.
