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 560 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, such as leadership and public speaking.
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.
