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.
I would like to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. My hope is that these past two months have been relaxing and productive for you. It is my sincere wish that you have a successful and pleasant year. Classes will begin on Monday, August 8, at 7:45 a.m. with all students reporting to first hour class to receive important opening school day information. Please come prepared to begin school work!
Each school year, all students have a clean slate and it is up to them how they choose to progress throughout the year. It is important that you take a few moments and discuss the goals for this year with your child. Each year as I talk to students, it is surprising to me how many do not have goals they want to achieve either in the short or long term. Take some time and establish realistic goals for your child. Write them down and post them where they can be seen daily. This strategy has worked for many successful people for many years. This year our district goal is to "Seize the day!"
It is the desire of the high school administrative team, counselors, faculty, staff, and I, that this year be an excellent one for you. If you need to meet with a guidance counselor or assistant principal please do not hesitate to contact us. We suggest that parents call the school first to schedule appointments before coming in so that you will not experience delays.
We are proud to offer an academically comprehensive high school with many opportunities that support a personalized, student-centered approach to learning. It is wonderful being part of a community that value and supports the educational initiatives that enhance our students’ achievements.
You can download and print the 2016-2017 student insurance forms from our school website beginning July 7, 2016. Simply click on the parents link tab in the left hand column and scroll down to the student accident insurance link.
Please mark you calendars with these important dates.
I’m looking forward to another great year. Together we can make a difference for kids! See you on the first day of school if not sooner.
