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

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Willcox High School (WHS) faculty and staff have made a commitment to provide an outstanding educational experience for all our students. We want to foster an atmosphere in which the values of truth, honesty, integrity, and respect are modeled and reinforced. As we move our district forward into this age of accountability, we believe a collaborative partnership between our school and our families is of paramount importance. We appreciate the positive relationships that have been formed and look forward to continuing to serve our community by both building character in our young people and by achieving excellence in all areas.

Congratulations to our recently graduated class of 2017. Our best wishes go to every graduate as each begins the next stage of his or her life. 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. It is difficult to achieve when you aren’t working towards a goal. Take some time and establish realistic goals for your child.

I will update my principal’s message again in August, 2017. Continue to check the WHS Facebook page for important information. The WHS office is open during the summer from 7:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.
