Welcome to the Home of the Cowboys

Welcome to the website of Willcox High School, Home of the Cowboys! We are located in Cochise County, Arizona, in the quaint historic town of Willcox, and we serve students in grades 9 through 12. Though we are a small school, we take pride in providing an excellent education for our students that will empower them to become responsible and compassionate adults and prepare them to succeed in a highly technological world.

In addition to our outstanding academic curriculum, we also offer special education and gifted education programs to cater to specific student needs as well as a variety of clubs and athletic activities for those seeking extracurricular opportunities.


A Message from our Principal

Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back! I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday break. It is hard to believe that the 2014 – 2015 school year is half over! 

  • This is an important time for many students. As you know, it takes 24 credits to graduate from Willcox High School. Students earn credits at the end of each semester.
  • I encourage you to take this opportunity to set some new goals with your child that will help him or her succeed academically. High school is just one-step in the educational process. It is imperative that parents and educators work together to make sure that students are prepared for the next step after graduation, whether that step is college, a career, or the military.
  • For Willcox’s senior class, graduation is not far away. Ms. Hall and I will meet with the seniors soon to review graduation requirements and senior exam exemptions.
  • If you are the parent of an underclassman, please begin to discuss next year’s course choices with your son/daughter. A tremendous amount of preparation, time, and effort go into the scheduling process.
  • Parents, please continue to reinforce good attendance habits with your child. Attendance and accuracy of attendance are extremely important in school.

It is our desire that the second half of the school year be excellent for all. If you need to meet with a teacher, guidance counselor, assistant principal, or me, please do not hesitate to contact us. We suggest that parents call to schedule appointments before coming to school. Our goal is to be ready to meet with parents promptly. We respect your valuable time.

We look forward to seeing parents and guardians at the next parent/teacher conference night, which will be on Tuesday, February 24 and Wednesday, February 25 from 5:00 – 7:15 p.m. In the meantime, I hope all Willcox families have a great new year. Together, we can make Willcox High School an excellent place for all students to learn. For additional information, please see the principal’s message in full.
