William H. Crocker Middle School is a public middle school located in Hillsborough, California, a suburb about 20 miles (32 km) south of San Francisco, as part of the Hillsborough City School District. It is named after William H. Crocker. Other schools in this district include South, North and West Elementary Schools. There is no high school in the Hillsborough School District, so most students move on to one of three high schools in the San Mateo or Burlingame Districts (Aragon High School, San Mateo High School, or Burlingame High School). In sports, Crocker plays against various other middle schools, including Burlingame Intermediate School. The school uses a "blue-gold" (the school colors) day system to determine students' schedules. Blue and gold days alternate every day so that if students have a subject on blue days they will either have it twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday) or three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).

Awards and recognition[edit]

William H. Crocker Middle School was recognized with the Blue Ribbon Award from the United States Department of Education, the highest honor that an American school can achieve, on five separate occasions: 1982–83, 1988–89, 1995–96, 2004–05[1] and again during the 2010-2011 school year.[2] Also, former principal Janet Chun received the "Community Care Award" for being the most caring and helpful faculty member in the Hillsborough City School district.
