About Crocker School

William H. Crocker Middle School is located in the suburban community of Hillsborough on the San Francisco Peninsula. The residents are primarily professional and business executives. One half of Crocker's students come from families in which both parents work outside of the home. The value of education is evidenced by strong parental involvement and participation in the school community. This year, student enrollment will be about 470 students.

All Crocker students take three years of English, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign language, and physical education. In addition, we offer electives in the arts and in personal development skills.

Since we believe that we are helping each child to build the foundation for the rest of his/her life, we offer more than strong academic training. Our curriculum includes skills, techniques, and motivation for lifelong learning, excellence, decision making, leadership, and commitment to others.

We believe in educating the whole child. Every aspect of our program is designed to build a close, caring community in which every child and every adult is recognized and respected.

Crocker was named a California Distinguished School in 1982, 1988, 1992, 1994, 1999, 2003 and 2007. In 2015 Crocker was named a California Gold Ribbon School. In 1983, 1989, 1995, and 2004, it was selected as an exemplary school by the National Secondary School Recognition Program. It is one of three middle schools in the nation to have been awarded the National Blue Ribbon four times. In 1993, Crocker was recognized by the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences for its managerial practices which fostered excellence.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
