Hidden Valley School
Welcome to Hidden Valley School! Our campus is nestled in the Sleepy Hollow neighborhood, backing to Open Space with a wide open field and views of Mt. Tamalpais. The spacious natural beauty of our campus invites our community of learners into a world of natural curiosity while developing skills, deepening knowledge, and discovering potential.
At Hidden Valley you will see students develop a curiosity about, knowledge of, and a sense of responsibility toward their learning, ideas, and the larger community. Buddy classes reading together, students collaborating on a design-thinking problem, flexible seating that allows student agency, and students quietly writing reflections with soft music in the background are common classroom sights.
What makes our school really special? Relationships. With approximately 340 students, only two or three classes per grade level, dedicated and skilled staff embrace the process of building relationships, making connections, and discovering how each student learns best. Students grow in an atmosphere where learning is both joyful and challenging, where teachers know them as individuals, and where they belong. A place that is safe to take risks, learn, grow, and contribute. Come join us!
Hidden Valley Highlights
In this 21st century learning simulation, business development blends several subjects in a multi-dimensional, engaging way. Students develop a deeper understanding of how the business world works as they develop their own business. Students discuss target market, develop a survey to determine shopper interests, analyze survey data and then design and develop a prototype.
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.

New Student Registration
To register a student who is not currently attending a school in the Ross Valley School District, visit Student Registration for process information and forms. Click on the applicable school year.
For the 2019-20 School Year
Online Registration begins Friday, January 25, 2019, and In-Person Registration begins Monday, February 4, 2019. We do not accept registration items via fax, mail, or email. Please note that only completed registration packets are accepted and each is date/time stamped. A completed registration packet includes the online Student Registration Forms on SchoolMint and the In-Person Forms and Documentation.
To assist the District in enrollment, staffing, and facilities planning, please complete the registration process by March 1 or as soon as possible. Because many elementary grade levels and schools in the Ross Valley School District are impacted, if more students register at their school of residence than can be accommodated, even if by March 1, students may be assigned to another district school where space is available. Any reassignments will be determined prior to the student’s first day of attendance.
