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.
Happy fall season from WHS! The 2014 - 2015 school year seems to be moving along faster than ever. It's hard to believe that the month of September is already behind us! The staff and students continue to work hard and move forward to get the job done. I am excited to see the progress we have made in such a short period of time, and I welcome any of our WHS family members to visit us at any time to see what wonderful things are taking place here at Willcox High School!
Education is important! Learning is both rewarding and satisfying, but it is also hard work. What students learn during their formative years is theirs for a lifetime, and that learning lays a very important foundation for a happier and more secure future. The school day is too short to "cover all the bases," hence the need to "crack the books" at home. Parents and guardians are role models for their children. As role models, you exert a powerful influence on your children's attitudes, characters, and values. Issues in school are ironed out because the students, staff, and parents comprise a TEAM, and teamwork means working together to struggle toward and to achieve goals.
Parents, please continue to reinforce good attendance habits with your child. Attendance and accuracy of attendance are extremely important in school, since excessive absences result in missed class work which may be difficult to make up, which may cause loss of continuity in learning, and also may produce an irresponsible attitude toward daily obligations, thus ultimately resulting in failure in school.
As always, if at any time we can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us through the main office or e-mail. If you were unable to attend parent/teacher conferences, please contact the school if a conference is still needed with your child especially if your child is having problems in any class. Now is the time to address it. Also, if you are not accessing Power School to see how your student(s) are doing, contact the attendance office for the login information.
I hope that you enjoy the upcoming fall season and all the events that will occur. I am sure you will agree with me when I say there is always something good going on at Willcox High School. IT'S UP 2 US to have a great school year!
